The value of the SBDC and our continued funding is measured by the economic impact created by the businesses that we work with.
By filling out the form below, I attest that the following impact has been created due to the assistance I have received from the assistance of the SBDC and the TechSource program:
"The small business support from Colorado SBDC is phenomenal. The consultants are of the highest quality, high integrity, trustworthy and incredibly helpful. The time savings and ability to take on more work is facilitated by having this kind of support available to the small business, particularly in the technology sector."
"Thank you for the SBDC help once again. I submitted our latest SBIR Phase I proposal to USDA yesterday. Brian Ormsby was invaluable with helping with the budget calculations, particularly the indirect rate calculations, and his style ("no nonsense, let’s get the numbers calculated and into the right places on the budget forms") was exactly what I needed."

"Through the SBDC, I received significant support in business development, marketing, financial projection, customer discovery, government compliance and many other business aspects. This support allowed me to have a strong start for my startup company, write solid proposals (including a commercialization plan for the SBIR grant) and be successively awarded SBIR Phase I and Phase II grants by USDA NIFA. But the most valuable part was, because of the SBDC and their consultants, I feel like I have a team of professionals ready to cover my back in the most important journey in my life - building a small business."

"Thank you for organizing this great informative session on the PPP utilization part. I have been in conversation with Dan King and want you to know that you guys are doing a great job in helping small businesses like us. Thank you for all the work you guys do!"

"As a new resident in rural Colorado I was truly at a loss about the tech community out here until I attended the SBDC TechSource event in Salida. I was truly impressed by the quality of the content at the event (compared to similar events in Chicago), was able to make some great connections within the local community, and was able to sign up for additional services as well. SBDC assisted us with market research which helped expedite our focus in Colorado and helped connect us with funding sources to expand. Beyond that they were quick to respond, a pleasure to work with, and went above and beyond with their services. I would absolutely recommend SBDC TechSource to another tech company, especially for companies outside of the front range that are looking to connect and grow rapidly."

"We have certainly worked with SBDC in the past and think Sharon and the rest of your office serve a critical function and put on excellent events to support the small business community."
"After almost two months of messing with Chase Bank, Susan got us the PPP loan filed and approved in about 8 hours. I hesitate to celebrate until money is in the bank, but it’s looking good and Susan was absolutely amazing. Of course, I’m wouldn't even be talking to Susan if you hadn't made the connection, so chalk up another small business success to SBDC. I see why you’re the best on the country. This loan was crucial to our success at a critical time in the world. All I can say is thank you."
"I just wanted to send a quick note and let you know how helpful Brian Ormsby has been. He responded to my query about a week and answered a bunch of questions about the EIDL, and then we talked again to day about the PPP. I’ve asked several other resources about my PPP questions and he was the first person to answer them. I can’t stress enough how nice it is to be able to talk directly to someone who can answer questions about all of these programs. So thank you very much for making him available...!"

"Colorado SBDC Techsource assisted our start-up company in multiple ways: by providing us with a competitive analysis that we use in our Business Plan, providing advice on an SBIR proposal, and by providing some pro bono legal work, that helped with the current investment round. All of which were very helpful to a small business with limited resources."
"We still have steps to go but we are excited and confident that we will have a technology startup that works globally based in SW Colorado and we hope others will follow. We would not have made the progress we have without the advice and help of Colorado SBDC."

"When I was first beginning Sandbox Solar, I was referred to the SBDC in Greeley. Jenn and the team helped connect me with a lot of people including our current lawyers and accountants. Sandbox Solar has steadily grown since then into the leading solar installer in Northern Colorado. Our company moved into the Colorado State University Powerhouse in 2015. Through that relationship we have been involved in research including Agrivoltaics. Our team is beginning the commercialization phase of this new concept and business model. We turned to SBDC to assist with market research. This was incredibly beneficial to receive market reports that would be otherwise inaccessible. The research was presented to us in a way that has helped narrow our focus and commercialization plan. Our team is excited for the next steps of our new ventures and value the SBDC as a strong partner moving forward. I would highly recommend the SBDC to any company in any stage, because their team has the resources and connections to help find answers."
