Boulder County ranks #1 on Forbes business launch list!
Forbes has recently published an article after dissecting the data from a finance site called NerdWallet, and has listed Boulder, CO, as the top metropolitan area to launch a business. Boulder is already known for it’s sub cultures, mountain views, and trendy farm to table restaurants and is being recognized as the best place to start a business in 2015.
Forbes looked at a variety of qualifying factors in almost two hundred metropolitan areas all with a minimum of 250,000 residents. Forbes analyzed the number of businesses per 100 residents, the median income, housing costs, and number of businesses that claim paid employees.
It is no wonder Boulder ranks so highly on this board. With reformed marijuana laws, a thriving tech scene, and an overwhelming percentage of both young professionals and residents with college degrees, we are proud to announce Boulders presence on top of yet another best of list!
