EDG Word Cloud


The Empire Development Group (EDG) is an alliance of business owners and professionals which exists to create meaningful connections, offer wise counsel, and further charity in the communities of its members.


The vision of EDG is to mobilize and empower its members to share their resources, services, and success to help others thrive.

Three core principles knit our membership together...

Connections (Hand)
We facilitate networking groups and special events designed to create meaningful connections.  From "Know and Grow" weekly meet-ups to business mixers, EDG aims to bring people together for the purpose of growing professionally and relationally.
  • You may be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
  • The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
counsel (head)EDG challenges its members to learn and grow. We create a culture based on the "Kaizen" principle of continuous improvement. Members have access to a bank of intellectual capital upon which accountability, instruction, and advice are readily available.
  • There is power in wise counsel.
  • Making better, better.
  • Without guidance, people fall, but with many counselors there is safety.
  • A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength.
Charity (heart)The Empire Development Group is built on and fueled by charity.  It is the desire to help others excel and life and business which propels members to serve and encourage one another.  Besides being a catalyst for individual members, the organization itself mobilizes its members to volunteer and support local charities and non-profits.
  • [If I have it all], but do not love, it profits nothing.
  • ”We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” –Winston Churchill
