THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN REGION’S UNIQUE POSITION
Since the end of 2007, the “Rocky Mountain” area in the USA has successfully seen over $11 billion in finance deals and acquisitions pass through its geography. This makes the area the largest in terms of these categories. In 2010, Colorado ranked in the top 10 states in the number of financing deals and dollars raised with our regional partners following close with Arizona in the top 15 and Utah in the top third of all states.
With over 100 new bioscience companies formed in the last 5 years out of our world class research institutions–and $716M in grant, angel and venture investments into those companies–this region knows how to grow its own successfully. From Taligen’s investments of $69.7M and its recent acquisition by Alexion Pharmaceuticals to Globeimmune’s raise of $145M (including $40M from a 2009 partnership with Celgene –and $400M in milestone opportunities) our companies continue to lure investors and partners–and, provide exits worth noting.
The Statistics Are Appealing
As you can read for yourself, the region is ripe for business procurement. Migration statistics gathered by a free survey maker have revealed that Colorado is very attractive to professionals in their early 30s.
