Location-Neutral Business

A growing number of businesses and individuals could work from anywhere, but choose Routt County for its quality of life. 

"Location-neutral businesses are helping to drive the diversification and vibrancy of the local economy," noted Scott Ford, a longtime local data analyst. 

Location-neutral businesses and employees are choosing to live in the Yampa Valley because of broadband connectivity, direct flights, quality schools, recreational amenities, and cultural events, among others.

An indicator of the strength of entrepreneurial activity in Routt County is the high percentage of households reporting self-employment income - more than twice the national average.
