Golden’s business community is rich in unique shops, services and restaurants. Here you will find an assortment of locally-owned, thriving businesses that are proudly supported by community members and visitors.
The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce (Chamber), a membership driven organization of approximately 240 businesses, not for profit organizations and individuals, represents a significant portion of our Business Community. The Chamber works to promote business interests, build a healthy economy, and grow Golden into a community where we all love to live and work. It provides programs and events to members in an effort to encourage networking and skill building. The Let’s do Lunch workshop series, and events like the Business after Business Mingles and the annual Community Excellence Awards offers entrepreneurs an opportunity to hear guest speakers, learn from each other and celebrate successes.
The Town of Golden works in collaboration with the Chamber to bring the community special events and support its goals throughout the year.
The College of the Rockies offers programming to those interested in learning how to start and keep a business and offers many professional development programs and courses to help build skills and expertise.
There are several other agencies that can also assist you with starting a business. In addition to the two local banks, you can contact Golden Employment Services.
