Innovation in Fort Collins is nothing new. Our city’s settlers were trailblazers and visionaries, setting new standards for agriculture, education and community building. That pioneer spirit is alive and well in Fort Collins. Today, people must be agile, innovative and creative acorns business sectors and industries. In 2010, 101 patents were registered to researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs in Fort Collins.
Our residents also enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle by walking on 130 miles of trails, playing in 44 parks or following the Poudre River that runs through the city. The community and out of town guests support the arts, dining out and shopping – with so much to choose from it’s hard to stay home.
