A unique public/private partnership serving the greater Brighton area, our goal is promoting and developing new and expanded business to provide and encourage employment and expand the tax base of the City of Brighton.

Invest in Brighton EDC

Broad based support from business and community leaders is essential to achieving and maintaining economic vitality. Brighton Economic Development Corporation relies on funding from the City of Brighton as well as commitments from our investors.

Because the City of Brighton covers a majority of our overhead items and staff salaries, all the financial support from investors goes directly to our program activities.

Private investors contribute yearly to help finance and support Brighton EDC’s proactive efforts to recruit quality companies that provide quality jobs for the citizens of Brighton.
