"Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation released its annual Industry Cluster Study, a year-over-year and five-year analysis of our region’s leading industry clusters. These clusters are our primary targets for national business recruitment as well as economic development retention and expansion efforts to grow Metro Denver’s economy.
Our nine-county region has come a long way in recovering jobs since the recession, as Colorado finished off 2014 strong with a 4 percent unemployment rate, the lowest since October 2007. A total of 4,700 new jobs were added to the state in December alone.
Our leading job growth can be attributed to Metro Denver’s eight primary industry clusters, which include aerospace, aviation, bioscience, broadcasting & telecommunications, energy, financial services, healthcare & wellness and IT-Software."
