Nestled in the front range, Longmont is a community with a small town feel and big time accomplishment. Imagine a place where every day the Rocky Mountains are your backdrop. Where your commute is along tree-lined boulevards and traffic only backs up when a light turns red. A place where craft beer is brewed down the block from cutting edge biotech research. Where local musicians at city festivals are the soundtrack to global innovation. A place where you’ll have easy access to all the spectacular recreation that makes Colorado famous, but where the local dining, drink, music and entertainment keeps you in town more often than not. While this place may sound like a dream, it’s just another day in Longmont, Colorado. Come see for yourself.

Rigid Bits

“Longmont has been my home off and on since I moved to Colorado more than 12 years ago. I fell in love with the community and in 2015 decided to make it my permanent home. Because of the strong ties with the community, there was no question when I founded Rigid Bits in 2017 that it is where we would set our roots down. As an added bonus, NextLight is the fastest internet service provider in the country, which is a great fit for us.

Rigid Bits provides cybersecurity services to businesses nationwide, providing valuable insight to prevent attacks and respond immediately to cybersecurity events. Since 2017, we have supported 70 businesses across 17 states and a variety of industries. We have experienced 300% year-over-year growth with no signs of slowing down. Our plans are to continue to expand Rigid Bits’ services to support businesses in all industries with their cybersecurity needs, changing the way we work as the industry and threats change. As our growth continues, we will bring on new employees and just last month moved into larger office space in Longmont in preparation for our future”.

LQ Ventures

“Having grown up in Longmont, and seeing it steadily grow throughout the years, I wanted to begin sharing and showcasing what Longmont has to offer the expanding community at large, and so was born LQ Ventures, Limited, in 2017. We are a full-service community creative company specializing in full-service brand strategy and design + portrait and product photography. We are most proud of our ability to keep all work in-house, providing everything from equipment to people. Most creative studios function by renting equipment or space, be we keep it all under our wing as we nurture steady growth. As we grow, we’re looking to purchase warehouse space that will allow us to build out a full photo, video, audio, and design studio under one roof. We hope to turn it into a community space that will allow creatives of the community to collaborate and grow together.”

Zometool

“Established in Longmont in 2007 because, frankly, I like being able to ride my bike to work. Zometool Inc. Manufactures and markets a hands-on embodiment of quantum math, the mother of all mathematics and the queen of sciences. Users include Nobel Prize-winning scientists, top mathematicians, artists and architects worldwide. Our best customers are kids, though – the visionaries of the future! Our greatest accomplishment was when co-founder Marc Pelleiter used Zometool to teach the structure of quasicrystals to Dan Scechtman who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. At least three other Nobel Prize winners have used the Zometool to advance their work. Steve Baer’s 31-zone system, the theoretical basis for Zometool, has been called ”as important as E=mc^2.” As such, Zometool is poised to revolutionize math education and has already had long-term cultural impacts in such diverse areas as physics, art, and architecture.”
