About EDC

Who we are

San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation – EDC for short – is an independently-funded economic development organization that mobilizes business, government, and civic leaders around an inclusive economic development strategy in order to connect data to decision making, maximize regional prosperity, enhance global competitiveness, and position San Diego effectively for investment and talent.


In addition to our programming, we also work directly with companies free-of-charge that are looking to expand, stay, or locate in the San Diego region. As a non-profit, our work is supported by nearly 200 companies that believe in creating a stronger San Diego for everyone. Check out our 2020 in review.
