About

Boise is not the next Silicon Valley, Seattle or Portland. It is different, geographically and culturally, which makes what starters have in Idaho's capital city very special. Boise is a community of people who genuinely care about helping each other succeed and investing in one another. Unlike major metros, it's 20 minutes to anywhere in the valley; that's a luxury most metros don't enjoy. Idaho has agricultural roots that have gifted a pragmatic, iron resolve to push through challenges and pursue dreams. Entrepreneurs throughout the Treasure Valley work as hard as any other area in the country, but they also enjoy a sense of balance that often gets lost elsewhere. Part of the allure of the Boise area is the outdoor lifestyle. Minutes from the pristinely preserved foothills, Bogus Basin Ski Resort and whitewater backcountry, are residents work to keep their way of life in balance with ambitions.
