Community Workshops

The purpose of our Colorado Community Entrepreneurial Workshop series is to elevate the conversation around entrepreneurship and innovation in rural communities across the state. These workshops are hosted in communities like Durango, Buena Vista, and Eagle/Summit County; areas that traditionally have fewer programs in place to support the education of current and potential community business owners.
Our workshops are ideal for companies looking to grow and scale their ventures. At its core, the goal of each workshop is to help elevate the conversation around entrepreneurship and innovation throughout rural Colorado, thus driving economic development and job creation. Each attendee will leave with a framework and tool set to help them make smart decisions about entrepreneurship in their life moving forward.
