The most influential economic factor in Fort Collins is Colorado State University. CSU employs nearly 7,000 individuals and attracts top technological firms because of its research facilities. Hewlet Packard, Intel, AMD, Avago, National Semiconductor, Pelco, and LSI all maintain offices in the greater Fort Collins area.

Even with so many white-collar positions available, the economy has retained a good balance of blue-collar occupations, as well. Major manufacturers like Anheuser-Busch, Woodward Governor, and Advanced Energy Industries  all operate plants in Fort Collins.

But perhaps you’ve had a dream of starting your own company – Fort Collins can help with that, too. Not only does local government offer tax-breaks for business start-ups, but several small business programs can help get your dream off the ground. The Small Business Development Center, the Rocky Mountain Innosphere, and the Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation all specialize in creating small-business success.

Fort Collins’s economic diversity and dynamism has not gone unnoticed. In 2011 the Milken Institute voted Fort Collins the third best city in the country for job creation and retention.

If you’re looking for work or trying to start your own business, Fort Collins might be the place for you. I’d be more than happy to show the real-estate side of our area. If you’re considering a move, give me a call today.
