Colorado Economic Development Blueprint

Last month, Governor Hickenlooper and his staff introduced “The Colorado Blueprint: A Bottom-Up Approach to Economic Development,” outlining the state’s priorities for growing Colorado’s economy. The plan provides outlined goals to 1) Build a business-friendly environment; 2) Recruit, grow and retain businesses; 3) Increase access to capital; 4) Create and market a stronger Colorado brand; 5) Educate and train the workforce of the future; and 6) Cultivate innovation and technology. The document continues on to discuss how each of these goals can be applied to different counties and regions around the state.
