Small Business Growth forum Aug. 23

You might have noticed that the economy has been in the news a bit lately, so let's do something about it! On Tuesday, Aug. 23, we will be holding a forum on Small Business Growth - from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. at the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, 2440 Pearl in Boulder.

One of the top goals for this forum is to help ensure that local small business owners know the various resources that are available to them. With special thanks to Sharon King, director of the Boulder Small Business Development Center, we've assembled a great lineup of speakers, as follows:

  • Sen. Rollie Heath, Introduction
  • Joan Henneberry, Colorado Health Institute, on Health Care and SB 11-200
  • Sharon King, SBDC
  • Alex Dempster, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority on Colorado Credit Reserve program
