Golden Supports Your Success

Where Entrepreneurship and Innovation Thrive

Golden is a great place to live and work. Located in the Rocky Mountain foothills west of Denver, Golden features a diverse economy of primary employers as well as innovative startups. Golden also is home to the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratories. Coors got started here and after a beer, there are miles of trails for hiking and biking. Clear Creek runs through the historic downtown, a block from Golden’s charming Washington Avenue where you’ll find shops, restaurants, breweries, hotels, and museums. Golden offers a sustainable, resilient, and healthy community with a network of resources to support existing and growing businesses.
