Boulder, Colorado

Boulder County has more tech startups per capita than any U.S. metropolitan area, and it’s no wonder – the brightest minds flock to Boulder to work with companies that define innovation on a daily basis. And not only do startups thrive, seasoned technology companies and professionals find that being in this vibrant community is a large contributing factor to their long-term success.



And who can ignore our lifestyle? Boulder County is a gateway to numerous outdoor adventures, unique cultural events, award-winning restaurants and family friendly activities.

NOTE: The DaVinci Institute along with it’s famous DaVinci Coders program are also an integral part of the Boulder startup community.

A study released in 2013 says Boulder has more tech startups per capita than any U.S. metropolitan area. Second on the list was the Fort Collins-Loveland area, further demonstrating Colorado’s influence in the high-tech industry. Denver finished sixth. Colorado Springs was ranked ninth. Cheyenne, Wyo., just across the border, surprisingly landed in the 10th spot of the study released by the Engine and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Noting the presence of Boulder at the top of its list, the study notes that high-tech startups are becoming increasingly geographically diverse, while the opposite is true for new businesses across the economy generally.
