Ritter’s New Executive Orders Encourage Venture Capital Investment

"Gov.Ritter signed a pair of executive orders late last week designed to encourage venture capital investment in the state’s clean energy, bioscience, aerospace and information communication technology startups. He made the EO’s official at a Colorado BioScience Association gathering at the state Capitol.

'Over the past four years, Colorado has made huge strides in building a pro-business environment, especially in the areas of clean tech and bioscience,' Gov. Ritter said. 'Our economic development strategy is focused on the industries that are leading in innovation – industries like new energy, bioscience, aerospace and technology. For Colorado to build on these strengths and continue our success, we have to find new and creative ways to increase access to capital for our businesses. That’s what these executive orders are all about.'"
