Our story

Drew Lyon, Focused Energy founder in a Denver bakery

Focused Energy was founded in 2013 in Boulder, Colorado by Drew Lyon, a finance guy passionate about helping businesses succeed in a tough world. A knowledge of finance combined with a respect for innovation led Drew to start a company dedicated to helping people with great ideas create prosperous businesses. What may seem like a day job for others is a commitment and passion for those at Focused Energy.

It is a running joke with his friends and colleagues that Drew is never able to simply pick up a check and leave a local shop. Instead, in the same breath as greeting a shop owner, he’s asking “How is business?” He knows that this open-ended question gives business owners the opportunity to talk about what has been working, but more importantly, their challenges.

This focus, drive, and compassion are what Focused Energy brings to our client portfolio today. While our work usually involves more complex business strategy and tactical needs, our business principles and genuine interest in making an impact in our community remain the same. It is rooted in every member of our team and the values guiding our growth. On any given Saturday morning you can bet that you will find one of our team members at a local business in downtown Denver or Boulder and chances are you’ll overhear us inquire, “So how’s business going?”
