The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in our communities, and small and home-based businesses dominate the business landscape. Business opportunities abound, and many regional organizations offer support for business people and investors.


People work in construction, tourism, retail, accommodation, food services, agriculture, education, health care, administration, manufacturing, transportation, logging, and mining. There are also many artists in the area. High-speed Internet (ADSL available in New Denver; wireless and satellite available in all communities) has attracted entrepreneurs to set up home-based businesses here, where they can own a home and business for far less than it would cost elsewhere, and enjoy magnificent scenery out the office window.


For more information on the businesses here, see the Chamber’s Member Directory.
