While there’s no doubt that Eagle is home to a diverse economy, there are significant concentrations in a few key industries, thanks to primary drivers like an impressive supply of well-educated and innovative talent, the exceptional quality of life, and the strong collaborative and supportive environment between academia, government, and industry.

Eagle targets specific industries, activities and opportunities on which to focus our recruitment and retention efforts.  Matching location strengths to industry requirements and to industry demand patterns is critical in target industry identification, and an essential component of an effective economic development strategy.  

Through our efforts as economic development professionals and the strong network of each industry, both locally and regionally, these sectors offer a distinct competitive advantage over other communities.

Proactive Focus Industries

Emerging or Developmental Sectors represent those sectors that are growing in Eagle but that may have not formed a "significant" industry cluster and/or may not drive significant job creation in the short-term, but aligns with other desired attributes of the community and its residents.   Such desired attributes include greater economic diversification, more local jobs for residents that commute out for work, and the development of a greater economic identity.  

These emerging sectors are industries Eagle would like to see continue to grow, but are secondary to the primary target industries listed above and are not a "focus" of our proactive recruitment efforts.
