Colorado is home to over 550,000 small businesses and entrepreneurs. Nationally, our state ranks #1 in women-owned businesses and #5 in business starts. The Colorado SBDC Network’s mission is to be the premier, trusted choice of businesses for consulting, training and resources.  The SBDC Network is a true private-public partnership, funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the State of Colorado, and hundreds of private, public and non-profit organizations including chambers, economic development organizations, banks, educational institutions and more.

By virtue of our relationship with the Colorado SBDC, the Northwest SBDC is also funded in part by the Colorado Business Development Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity who's mission is to fund business development organizations across the state which provide free or low-cost consulting and training to small business owners. Your tax-exempt donation to the CBDF can be earmarked specifically for Northwest SBDC funding and every $50 provides up to 90 minutes of free consulting to a passionate entrepreneur.

If you're interested in statewide sponsorship opportunities, the Northwest SBDC can work with you to create custom packages to ensure your message reaches your intended audience. Contact Dustin Kelley at 970-390-0534 for more information.

You may also support small businesses in your area by sending a check to the Northwest SBDC.  Please mail to:
