Idaho, Great for Business


According to MSNBC, the most improved state for business is also the one with some of the finest outdoor recreation in the country. It’s true that Idaho is an outstanding place to live and work and now you can experience this one-of-a-kind balance at the all-new Idaho Commerce website.

The online experience is “responsive” so the design and content automatically adjust to any device – important since users range from site selectors to many different types of Idaho businesses and communities. The site provides critical assistance relevant to business and economic growth giving visitors a glimpse of all Idaho has to offer through bold scenic photography and a seamless information architecture.

The mission of Idaho Commerce is to create jobs, strengthen communities and market the state. Take a look and see for yourself why organizations from Clif Bar to Portugal-based Frulact think Idaho is great for business.
