As a Colorado Native born and raised in Golden, CO, I value the start-up community in my state and the resources available to budding entrepreneurs.
I wanted to take this blog to share resources I've collected over the years. These have really helped me along the way and outside of these resources I urge every aspiring entrepreneur to find a good mentor or coach. The people you surround yourself around will make all the difference and you never know who wants to be in your corner.

Denver Metro Small Business Development Center is an amazing free resource! These people are so helpful. Take advantage of free consulting on finances, business planning, marketing and more. A Must!
Inspiration & Networking
Attend Denver StartUp Week. You can meet like-minded people, mingle with CEOS, developers and creatives. Enjoy speakers, events and workshops. I was on a few panels over the years and made a lot of really contacts.
Every startup needs working capital to get moving or to scale. Denver Angels, a group of angel investors lead by David Prichard, is, hands down, the friendliest and most professional group in Denver. Check Our Their Pitch Submissions.
Grants & Opportunity Zones
