For the health and safety of our participants and staff, we have decided to cancel the 11th Annual Small Business Conference! 

We appreciate everyone who sponsored, submitted a breakout session, or assisted us in the beginning planning of this day-long event! We look forward to hosting this event in Southwest Colorado in May 2021 to build, invest, and strengthen our business community together! 

The Southwest Colorado SBDC is open and meeting remotely with any business that needs assistance during these difficult times. Register for consulting at

After 10 successful years hosting the SBDC Women’s Small Business Conference we are starting off the new decade by relaunching the conference as the Southwest Colorado Small Business Conference. We want to welcome all entrepreneurs to join us! The conference is themed “Dream Focused, Business Minded” and will take place on Thursday, May 7, 2020 at the Sky Ute Casino Event Center in Ignacio, CO.

This day-long event attracts hundreds of professional business owners who represent all sectors of the business community, including corporate, government, public agency, and non-profit. These professionals represent the many diverse communities across the region, traveling from counties across southwest Colorado, northwest New Mexico, and beyond. We are thrilled for the opportunity to build, invest, and strengthen our business community together!
