In addition to its rich blend of culture, art and technology, the area offers unrivaled outdoor adventures that feed the soul and spark the creative spirit. With nearly 500 miles of world-class hiking and biking trails and some of the best skiing in the Southwest, this outdoor paradise provides spectacular escapes from work's daily demands.

With the help of business-friendly Santa Fe County, you can put your business where you want to live and watch it flourish. For instance, when Brian Lock, owner of the award-winning Santa Fe Brewing Company, wanted to expand his 31-year-old business, he partnered with Santa Fe County to receive funding through the Local Economic Development Act (LEDA).

“It’s been a great County to do business in,” says Lock, who keeps busy brewing beer but still finds time to ski, raft and even grow his own hops near the banks of the Rio Grande.

Descartes Labs Co-Founder and CEO Mark Johnson also enjoys the outdoors. It's one of the reasons he chose Santa Fe as the headquarters of his company, which crunches big data to better understand natural resources.

“The kind of people who love the outdoors are often the people who want to preserve the outdoors,” he says. “How cool is it to go hiking in the forest and then work on models that help to preserve the earth's natural resources? Because of [Santa Fe’s] proximity to national forests and year-round outdoor activities like mountain biking and world-class skiing, it’s been relatively easy to recruit talent."

With its breathtaking landscape and premium quality of life, Santa Fe County is a great place to be. Whether you're launching a new business or relocating an existing company, you'll find living and working in the area to be inspiring, invigorating, rewarding and inviting.
