We’re a lively place.

Greater Louisville is a great place to live and work, and a great place to locate or grow your business. Our 15-county bi-state region has top notch and diverse talent, a competitive cost of doing business, a pro-business environment, and a robust workforce pipeline that includes work-ready skill building, industry-specific training programs, employer networks, job placement, university-industry partnerships, and customized talent attraction solutions.

With a workforce participation rate above the national average and steady population growth over the last several decades, Louisville is becoming one of the most attractive places to do business. In 2023, Site Selection Magazine, the nation’s leading publication for corporate expansion and area economic development, named Louisville a Top 5 U.S. Metro for Economic Development. As a metro with a population of more than 1 million people. The accolades do not stop there. Greater Louisville consistently tops the ranks for most affordable metros, and most inclusive cities. With recently passed state and local policies to reduce production-based taxes, the region is also on-track to making a name for itself for its top tier business climate.
