Why Laramie

Businesses in Laramie make a difference – to their customers, to their employees, to their community, and to the world.

Quality of Life

Clean mountain air and sweeping plains are just the start to an outdoor lifestyle second to none. Hiking in the national forest, rock climbing or fly fishing, Laramie’s outdoor recreation opportunities are endless, and minutes away. In town you will find a wide variety of things to do: drink locally roasted coffee, enjoy a concert in the park, or cheer on the cowboys at a basketball game. Life at 7200 feet — it’s better up here.


Home to University of Wyoming, Laramie boasts some of the most forward thinking, creative minds, and entrepreneurial spirits. Along with state of the art research facilities, manufacturing, healthcare, and a highly educated workforce, there are graduates from local colleges who want to stay in Laramie.


Say goodbye to the small fish in a big pond mentality, in Laramie your voice is heard. Decision makers are part of your local community and authentic relationships are waiting to be developed with stakeholders who want your business to succeed.

“Laramie is a great town to grow a business and raise a family in. If you enjoy and value the outdoors it’s hard to beat. Fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, climbing…. The list goes on, all at your doorstep. For me I like the idea of building a business in a place that offers opportunity, but also has strong ties to the past – a history and relationship with the environment that keeps you grounded. I want my kids to grow up in that kind of a place.”
