Colorado Pulse

Denver ranks as the 9th fastest growing city in the US, with 2.8 million residents and a projected increase of 52% by 2040, according to a 2016 study by American City Business Journals. Colorado's total population is approximately 5.4 million.

Companies are drawn here, to the best workforce in the country – highly educated and fit and thus productive! As an example, Denver tops Forbes' list of "The best place for business and careers" for a second year running (2015 and 2016). The list also contains 3 other Colorado cities in the top 30. Another perfect example of the booming business culture in Colorado is Boulder. The city has the highest "high-tech startup density" of any metro area in the United States, a study from 2013 shows.

The major Denver industries, all experiencing growth are aerospace, aviation, bioscience, broadcasting, telecommunications, energy, financial services, IT software, healthcare and wellness. Paired with traditional Colorado industries such as mining, tourism, agriculture, and a large federal influence the economic diversity allows for a sound economy. Not only is the economy growing, but the Denver metro area also has the lowest unemployment rate out of the largest U.S. metro areas, according to a 2016 report from OSPB.

Or maybe we should credit our state success to it’s incredible beauty of 300 days of sunshine per year paired with a backdrop of 54 majestic Rocky Mountain peaks over 14,000 feet. Join SACC Colorado and learn more about business and life here.
