A recent survey of over 6,000 small business owners nationwide by Thumbtack.com, in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, found that small business owners in Colorado are some of the most optimistic in the country – 9th overall. Other findings include that our state is one of the most business-friendly in the country by various measures.
We weren’t surprised to learn that survey results show that the Front Range is the best area of the state for operating a small business, better even than the Denver Metro area. That finding is consistent with the message delivered by Colorado Small Business Administration District Director Greg Lopez, to the Arvada Chamber of Commerce last month.
Other reasons why we weren’t surprised by the survey findings:
- our clients in Jefferson County are expanding, growing, hiring, and seeking more legal services
- the Colorado legislature has continued to support business-friendly regulation, as we reported in our May 23, 2012 blog post
