Public/Private Sector Connectivity
While Southern Nevada is known for having a melting pot community, boasting a population in excess of 2 million residents, the community remains tightly knit and accessible through a few degrees of separation. As the regional development authority for Southern Nevada since 1956, our team and membership provide new and expanding businesses with one to two degrees of separation within Nevada’s public and private sectors.
