The Colorado Advantage

Many factors contribute to Colorado’s reputation as an exceptional place to start, grow, commercialize or relocate a life sciences business. Our collaborative business culture. World-class academic and research institutions. Favorable tax climate. Educated, motivated workforce. Supportive bioscience sector. Our location.

For business leaders and researchers, location means more than our beautiful Rocky Mountain setting. Our strategic position in between the two coasts makes Colorado an ideal place to locate a business.

A major international airport offers direct flights to all major U.S. business centers and many international hubs, and the U.S. Mountain Time Zone offers companies real-time connections to six of seven continents in one business day.
