Larimer Bioscience Cluster: Looking Forward to 2009
Fort Collins is home to a very active, sophisticated group of bioscience companies. Various community organizations support the cluster through workforce recruitment, business retention and communication. The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Fort Collins’ Economic Health Office, Colorado State University, and the Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation help secure grants and provide meeting space, guest speakers, and a collaborative climate for these companies to work together.
