Our mission at Madison Economic Partners, Inc. is simple; to help create opportunities for economic development in Madison County; through business expansion, retention, and attraction. Madison Economic Partners, Inc. supports and promotes healthy policies and activities, which will contribute to the economic stability and growth of Madison County.
Currently Madison Economic Partners, Inc. (MEPI) is sponsoring two long-range studies, which will promote the county as an attractive location to live, work and play. The first is a comprehensive look at the implications of broadband Internet for our region. MEPI recognizes that in order to stay competitive, businesses need to be able to exchange information at the speed of light. Broadband Internet, in the form of fiber has that potential. MEPI has contracted Design Nine, out of Blacksburg, Virginia to study and assess broadband in Madison, Fremont, Teton Counties Idaho, as well as Teton County Wyoming.
The second study, Envision Madison, is a grassroots, long term planning approach for Madison County. As a non-profit, non-political entity, MEPI is uniquely suited to support this effort. The process for Envision Madison is designed to create and build on public engagement at every stage of the process.
MEPI supports entrepreneurship by sponsoring the Rexburg Business Competition (RBC), the only competition of its kind in the state beneath the state level. The RBC has invested over $45,000 in entrepreneurial ventures as a result of this competition over the last three years.
We welcome your support as we work together to build a better Madison County.
