The Wyoming Business Council functions as the economic development agency of the State of Wyoming.

The mission of the Wyoming Business Council is to facilitate the growth of Wyoming's economy.

To accomplish its goals the Wyoming Business Council helps retain and expand existing Wyoming businesses and industries; recruits targeted businesses to the state; and works with communities to develop infrastructure to become business-ready. The Business Council supports building partnerships with other statewide entities, such as the University of Wyoming. It also operates the state's energy office.

The Wyoming Business Council is part of the Wyoming state government, but its structure resembles a corporation with a CEO and board of directors.

The Business Council's divisions include Agribusiness; Business & Industry; Investment Ready Communities; Support Services; Travel & Tourism; and Field Operations.

Regional Offices[edit]

The Business Council has regional offices in Casper, Riverton, Powell, Cheyenne, Gillette and Rock Springs. The Regional Offices are the first points of contact for individuals, businesses and communities seeking Wyoming Business Council services. In addition to its divisions, the Business Council provides services to Wyoming citizens in partnership with the University of Wyoming.
