Residents

The South Valley Economic Development Center is a place for South Valley residents pursue their passions, employ their neighbors, support the tax base and follow their business dreams.  The SVEDC is more than just a building, it is a community of entrepreneurs working together to grow their businesses and further the development of the South Valley.

We are a business hub built for the community.  In addition to our business, the SVEDC serves as a meeting space for the community.  South Valley based non-profits, businesses, and neighborhood groups regularly attend our events and classes held at the facility. Our conference center is available for use by neighborhood groups.

To further the SVEDC’s mission to build entrepreneurship and be a resource for the community, the SVEDC has recently launched a new project called The Sandbox.  The Sandbox is the South Valley’s first coworking space and it is designed to be a place where community members can work on projects, take classes, and receive support from local professionals.  See how you can be become a part at: http://svedc.org/sandbox/.
“I’m a native South Valley resident and my clients love it that my office is in the South Valley. And I love this facility – the design is great and the support staff have been very helpful.  I started my business in March and it is growing and growing.”
