How Do We Help Businesses?

At the East Colorado Small Business Development Center we like to say that we are dream focused and business minded

We offer business consulting and training that maximizes the economic potential of entrepreneurs within East Colorado. We are an integral center of the Colorado SBDC Network. Together, our mission is to help existing and new businesses grow and prosper. Our goal at the Small Business Development Center is to help emerging and existing entrepreneurs gain control of their business operations. We provide no-cost guidance and counseling in all aspects of funding and developing a business. While we cannot eliminate risk, we work to minimize it by helping clients write comprehensive business plans, conduct financial forecasts, strategize marketing tactics, apply for funding, and improve operations. Let us help maximize your business potential!
