Reach for the Peaks

Reach for the Peaks is a strategic funding campaign designed to deliver an expanded, highly professional and proactive, nationally competitive economic development program for Longmont. This program will enable Longmont EDP to identify strategic economic development initiatives and pursue them to reach for the peaks of Longmont’s economic potential.

The goal of the Reach for the Peaks campaign is to increase Longmont EDP’s private sector funding base to increase our capabilities and make Longmont EDP a more agile organization, specifically through implementation of two core strategies:

  • Develop a National Marketing Campaign – Create and implement a full-scale, comprehensive economic development marketing strategy that effectively leverages owned, earned, shared, and paid media to sell the strengths of our community and diversify our marketing efforts beyond traditional “business recruitment” strategies.
  • Create ASPIRE Fund & Leadership Council – Build a fund that will provide flexible resources to develop and implement strategies and pursue aspirational objectives supporting Longmont’s ability to achieve its greatest economic potential. Goals and objectives for use of these funds are guided by the ASPIRE Leadership Council, a leadership body made up of individuals and organizations invested in the fund.

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”.
