First there was plain old investing. The idea was to get rich. Then there was socially conscious investing. The idea still was to get rich, but to do so in such a way that you didn't lose sleep at night. Now, 5280 introduces a new concept, Denver Friendly Investing. You still get to make money - just like in the old days - but with Denver Friendly Investing, you're also making Denver a better place to live.
If investing your money close to home sounds new to you - you're not alone. In fact, for most people, investment with an eye on anything besides the monetary return is a novel idea. Yet Denver and its metro area neighbors have plenty to offer, no matter what kind or size of investment you're looking to make. Make money and help out your hometown. Now, why didn't anybody think of this before?
