Rob Duchow President of AVEDGE

Welcome to the new AV EDGE!

AV EDGE was created with a renewed synergy to serve your site selection, business expansion and other economic development needs. The tools you need can all be found from clicking a link on this home page. This includes our Roundtable Report where you can find community-specific demographic and other information not available anywhere else.

Although new in name, the Antelope Valley Economic Development & Growth Enterprise is building on the legacy of two organizations which have served our community for decades. The Antelope Valley Board of Trade has been advocating for area businesses since 1957; the Greater Antelope Valley Economic Alliance was formed in 1999 to boost regional economic development efforts.

In 2020, the leaders of these two existing groups came together to form AV EDGE, for the betterment of all in our region. AV EDGE will continue the advocacy of AVBOT and the grass-roots economic development efforts of GAVEA.

With support from private and public sector partners, AV EDGE is your new source for general and specific information to help you find the best location for your business across our 3,000 square miles of Northern Los Angeles and Eastern Kern Counties.

We look forward to working with you, and to welcoming your company and new jobs to the Antelope Valley!
