Check Ups

The SBDC continues to work with businesses that need assistance in applying for funding – both pandemic related and non-pandemic related. As the year comes to a close, we are offering free business check ups to review financial statements, provide benchmarking, and work on a business strategy for 2021.


The SBDC continues to create engaging virtual workshops providing practical business resources for our southwest community. From marketing to setting up an e-commerce store to business planning and accounting, we cover all of your bases when starting or growing your business.

Small Business Conference

 We want to welcome all entrepreneurs to join us! The conference is themed “Learn, Adapt, Evolve, and Thrive” and will take place on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 at the Sky Ute Casino Event Center in Ignacio, CO.
