Major Employers & Industries

Fort Collins' economy has a mix of manufacturing and service-related businesses. Many high-tech companies have relocated to Fort Collins because of the resources of Colorado State University and its research facilities.

Fort Collins is also home to many small businesses and entrepreneurial ventures. The Larimer Small Business Development Center helps small businesses in the area get started and become profitable. Other factors that attribute to the entrepreneurial climate of Fort Collins are Colorado State University's College of Business and its Entrepreneurship Center and the Rocky Mountain Innosphere, helping new clean energy, technology, and scientific startup companies get started.
