Denver is the capital city in the state of Colorado, and the second most populous county in Colorado. Denver has a gross metropolitan product exceeding $157 billion, making it the 18th largest metro economy in the US.

In the early days of the city, gold and silver played a large role in the economic life of the city, due to its location near the mineral-rich Rocky Mountains. Over the years, many well-known corporations started life in Denver, including household names such as Samsonite Corp. and the Coors Brewing Corp. Large Denver-area employers include Lockheed Martin, United Airlines, The Kroger Co. and Mapquest.
