Do great ideas grow on trees in Henderson? Certainly, great innovation does flourish from the ground up. Case in point: K-2 Energy, a leading provider of cutting-edge technology in Lithium ion energy storage, products and research. Founded in 2006 in Henderson Incubator space, the company surpassed $100 million in revenue in 2017.
Another prime example: VadaTech, a world leader in the design and manufacture of embedded computer solutions. Founded in 2004, VadaTech now has a footprint that spreads across the globe even as the company continues to operate its headquarters, design center and two large manufacturing facilities here in Henderson.
For innovation at any stage of development, Henderson is the intelligent choice, allowing companies to move fast at lower costs in a pro-business environment where low-to-no taxes and reduced regulations also help to ignite innovation and catalyze opportunity.
Elements to excel.
A diverse supply of sites, available land and business spaces allow companies to find the right location to suit every spec. And Henderson’s workforce is ready for every challenge, with a potent percentage of workers under the age of 38, skills and creative thinking nurtured by the region’s top K-12 schools and a talent pipeline that includes nine universities and institutions of higher learning.
Ideal turf for young professionals.
Affordable and inviting, Henderson offers a quality of life uniquely compelling for worker attraction and retention. This high-energy city is a dynamic place to work and play, and an emerging pro-sports hub. Home to the Las Vegas Raiders headquarters (with games at Allegiant Stadium just minutes away), Henderson also recently welcomed the Vegas Golden Knights, a young NHL franchise that has already scorched the ice establishing itself as a Stanley Cup contender.
Henderson also happens to be an outdoor paradise. Imagine hiking, biking and soaking up the scenic surroundings on 180 miles of walking trails and more than 1,300 acres of parkland. Or diving into excellent facilities for swimming, tennis, golf and more. And in a vibrant downtown, there is much to explore and savor in the historic Water Street District and the Artisan Booze District, home to on-trend wineries, breweries, distilleries and farm-to-fork establishments. All just minutes from the excitement of the Las Vegas strip, and the cluster advantages of a fertile tech ecosystem that includes Switch, Geotab, the AI Foundation, Haddington Dynamics and Scientific Games Corporation.
Successful Search: Why Google chose Henderson for its first Nevada location.
When a company dedicated to efficient, productive searches conducts its own search for a location to build its new $600 million data center, the results are sure to be sound.
While the state’s data center tax abatement was a critical factor in focusing the search in Nevada, Google’s criteria of suitable energy infrastructure, available land and ready workforce brought Henderson to the top of the list. The city’s rewarding partnerships with major corporations such as Ford Motor Credit, Toyota Financial Services and Levi Strauss provided another relevant assurance. Also a decisive element: The human energy and spirit of entrepreneurship that promises to make this region a vital new hub of innovation.
