As mayor, I'm thrilled to see that Provo has been ranked #1 for Best-Performing City in the Nation for the second consecutive year! The citizens of Provo should be proud - from our startup companies and established businesses to educational institutions and everyone that supports them.
Some of these companies and universities/colleges include Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, Provo College-Provo, Rocky Mountain University HP, Qualtrics, InsideSales.com, Wavetronix, Vivint Smart Home, Chatbooks etc. They are some of the real reasons Provo City is the Best-Performing City in America!
Provo is well-known for its quality of life. We have some amazing opportunities here for careers and outdoor recreation all while being a part of a tight knit community. We lead the nation in job growth - it’s no wonder businesses, families, and individuals want to locate here. We continue to welcome businesses large and small to our area! I want to thank our economic development team for helping to foster the climate here for businesses to succeed.
