Veteran-Owned Businesses of Fort Collins
Fort Collins is home to over 18,000 U.S. Veterans according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and at For Fort Collins our aim is to show support and appreciation for all that they’ve done for us.
It’s estimated by the U.S. Small Business Administration that on a national level, veterans are 45% more likely to be self-employed than non-veterans. This remains true in Fort Collins as 11% of our small businesses are veteran-owned.

By providing a platform to share the success stories of our veteran-owned businesses, we can ensure they will continue to thrive by connecting them with the community around them.
