Setting up in America?

Relocating to Colorado?

Colorado is one of those places that people seem to feel that they have “discovered.” Once discovered, this is a difficult place to leave. You’ll find a life style that is hard to replicate elsewhere. Also, you’ll also find we have one of the most highly educated workforces in America. We’re usually ranked second in America after Washington, D.C …and we like it here.

If you’re bringing your ICT company from Europe or some other part of North America you’ll be thrilled with the cost advantages of Colorado and our location at the geographic center of America. Forget the two coasts!

ICT professionals and the companies that employ them are, increasingly, learning about how special Colorado can be. ICT is a very important and continually growing part of our economy.

Colorado Silicon Network enthusiastically welcomes your relocation inquiries. We are glad to offer advice and to direct you to the individuals and agencies that can help you with your relocation search.

Planning a Trade Mission?

A genuinely productive Trade Mission, one that produces quantifiable results, is difficult to organize. Time management, costs, appointments and logistics all have to be carefully managed. If you are planning a mission to Colorado, North America or to the UK and Continental Europe contact us at Colorado Silicon Network. We would be delighted to offer some initial advice. For a modest fee, in coordination with our Partners, we can organize a targeted, efficient productive trip for you.
