Resources for Colorado Small Businesses

Many Coloradans, like others across the country, saw the pandemic as an opportunity to reevaluate their work and decided to take the plunge into owning their own businesses. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Q4 2021’s Small Business Index score is 63.0, the highest score since the start of the pandemic.* While this score shows cautious optimism for 2022, small businesses are still being impacted by staffing shortages, supply chain issues and the rise of inflation. 

To help small business owners on the Front Range of Colorado we want to share some of the resources available to them to make 2022 a successful year, whether it is their first year in business or their 40th
