Attendees will also learn how to:

  • Create a value proposition

  • Differentiate their business 

  • Establish a competitive advantage

  • Grasp entrepreneurial economics and fundraising

The goal is for each Colorado community to see an increase of people starting and growing their ventures, leading to job creation and a higher quality of life throughout Colorado!”
