A VIBRANT FUTURE FOR THE KOOTENAYS
Businesses, entrepreneurs and tech workers have noticed. They’re choosing to build startups where they can live comfortably and maybe afford to raise a family. They’re choosing a place where they can work remotely and enjoy the lifestyle and outdoor adventure opportunities that exist here. They’re choosing a place where coworking spaces and fab labs are on the rise.
They’re choosing to invest millions of dollars in a region ripe with potential and innovation. What was our curse is now our blessing. Our rugged geography means eclectic small towns are oozing the innovative spirit. No matter which aspect of our three mountain ranges you are on, the digital economy is on the rise in the Kootenays and it knows no physical bounds. Accessing a global market from this beautiful place is strengthening our local economies and creating vibrant healthy communities.
From craft beers to murals, from flowing rivers to glacier-fed lakes, from grizzly bears to moose, from peaks to thriving streets…the Kootenay region is truly one of the last frontiers…a secret locals keep close. And a discovery visitors cherish.
