Colorado Small Business Development Center: Top Notch Resource in Our Backyard

The Colorado SBDC, with 14 regional hubs and funding from the Small Business Administration, is focused on helping all businesses. Colorado start-ups to larger businesses can enjoy the resources supplied by the organization.  Areas of fundamental business help include:

  • Information
  • Counseling
  • Technical assistance
  • Training in business startups, operations and management

They have just released their annual report, and the numbers don’t lie. In 2011, all the sub-centers together:

  • Counseled more than 5,500 businesses, spread throughout all 64 of the state’s counties.
  • Created/retained more than 5,400 jobs.
  • Produced $882.2 million in government and private-sector contracts.
  • Helped produce $150.4 million in contracts and private infusion of capital, such as bank loans and money raised from owners, friends and family.

…Because Everyone Could Use a Hand, Now and Then

Some of the Center’s up-coming workshops to help the Colorado LLC, C Corp or S Corp include:

  • Startup Orientation
  • Starting a Business
  • Choosing the Right Business Structure
  • Business Plan Basics: Your Roadmap to Success.

I suggest that any new Colorado business owner and entrepreneur take advantage of the valuable resources offered by the Colorado SBDC. Their workshop calendar can be found here.
