Strategies for successful business formation

"Necessity is the mother of invention," so the saying goes. But if it had a father, it very well might be smart business planning. Many Fort Collins residents are nursing creative ideas, and some are taking steps to bring those innovations to fruit. Some will succeed, and some will fail. While it's impossible to reliably predict which new business concept will blossom or bomb, there are some key strategies that business formation and planning experts often recommend to assure that your brilliant idea doesn't fall into the scrap pile.

Warehouses for marijuana in high demand in Colorado

Marijuana has been legal in Colorado for months, and the demand is as high as ever. This has led to higher demand in another industry that usually is not as busy and bustling in Denver: real estate. Growers are not allowed to grow marijuana anywhere in the state, as there are different regulations in various counties, but Denver allows it. The growers use warehouses for the product so that they can have a controlled environment. Many of the empty warehouses were picked up from the market as soon as the boom began, and the result is that there is high demand for this type of structure today, combined with a dwindling supply.

Trucking regulations appear to be working

In our last post, we highlighted the massive accident that occurred on I-25 in Denver. While a fast moving snow storm was the likely culprit behind the accident, authorities explained to the media that it could take days to reach the actual cause. In all, 104 cars were involved in the crash, which stretched over a 1½ mile stretch of highway.
