California, you're still the one.

In 2009, Colorado literally took to the skies to declare its love for California. This year, the Colorado Cupids hit streets of L.A. to share the state’s unending devotion with valentines and chocolates.

Plus, Colorado’s love song dedications to California on KBIG-FM seem to have made a big impression.

And when the Colorado Avalanche met the L.A. Kings on Feb. 13, our cupids gave hugs and kisses instead of “checks” outside the Staples Center.

But long after the glow of Valentine’s weekend is gone, we feel we still have a lot to offer California companies — a stable, thriving business climate – with a lower corporate income tax rate and cost of living.

Colorado is simply a more cost-effective, long-term option for expanding your business and your bottom line. For more information, check out our business case and economic profile.

California, you're still the one.

Businesses thrive here. Is it our highly educated workforce? Or our business-friendly environment? We think it’s a combination of both.

After all, who are we to argue with Forbes magazine? It ranked Colorado No. 1 for labor and No. 2 for growth prospects. Our flat corporate tax rate of 4.63 percent coupled with a single factor corporate income tax structure rewards investments and business innovation. Our business-friendly government is constantly embarking on new incentives to make doing business in Colorado easier and more profitable. And our significant investments in infrastructure ensure that your company will continue to thrive.

Plus, Colorado is leading the way in the clean energy economy as home to the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory. No wonder international cleantech leaders such as Vestas Wind Systems and SMA Solar Technology chose to locate their first North American manufacturing sites in the state.

Colorado has always been a popular place to set down roots. Perfectly perched at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Metro Denver successfully brings together world-class culture, professional sports, outdoor recreation, and a mild, sunny climate – all with the nation’s second-most educated workforce.

The love never ends.
