A data-driven approach to economic development.

We pride ourselves on our data-driven approach to building an economic ecosystem that champions and supports business. With our robust access to data sets and analysis tools, we can create a variety of reports to provide more in-depth insight about our community, economy, and region.

Economic and fiscal impact modeling.

We conduct regular economic and fiscal impact modeling on relocation opportunities, development projects, and more. Our powerful tools account for the local tax environment and create easy-to-read reports and infographics.

Community, demographic, and economic data.

We have built up our in-house capacity to provide in-depth reporting using rich data sets on community, demographic, and economic data. We are actively blending and testing publicly available and private data sets and tools to create powerful reports.

Example Insights

The availability of regional workforce at varying wage rates. We ran this report for a company examining the availability of the talent pool at different salaries.

The hottest national markets to recruit from. We built this report for a company seeking deeper insights about the availability of a highly-specialized occupation; they used these insights to target their recruitment efforts.

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”.
