Build a thriving and resilient innovation-driven economy

As our city grows, we can and should do more to shape an economy that is diverse, resilient, and more broadly distributes good jobs, opportunity, and security. We need to attract and support entrepreneurs and businesses that will invest in our community, and create a climate that will help small businesses thrive. As mayor, Erin will:

  • Forge a partnership with the universities and leaders in the business community to grow the tech industry presence inside the city limits, creating higher-paying jobs and generating greater tax revenue;
  • Make it easier for businesses to get started in Salt Lake City by updating and improving the city’s permitting processes, and offering assistance to low-income entrepreneurs; and
  • Recruit and embrace businesses aligned with our commitment to sustainable development, good pay, union labor, and fair treatment of workers.
