Congressman visits Loveland’s Herbal Heart Apothecary, other Northern Colorado businesses
LOVELAND — Rep. Jared Polis stopped in Loveland on Tuesday to talk shop with the founders of a natural skin-care company on a day that he was highlighting startup businesses.
The 2nd District’s Democratic congressman toured several small Northern Colorado companies as part of Startup Day Across America, which he launched four years ago with Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. The two founded the Congressional Caucus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
In a converted garage behind the downtown Loveland home of one of the founders of Herbal Heart Apothecary, Polis looked over the raw herbs and the machinery the three women use to create their skin-care products.
