Starting A Business

Starting a business can be overwhelming; we can help that process be less daunting. To get the maximum benefit of the LBDC program, we suggest a combination of our one-on-one counseling sessions, workshops and networking events.


Attending the course “So You Want to Start a Business” is the perfect starting point for most aspiring entrepreneurs. Designed for new business owners, this workshop introduces resources for doing business in Colorado, explores what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and provides invaluable tools to setup your business for success.

This course also prepares you to work one-on-one with our consultants. We’ll connect you with a consultant who understands where you are and will guide you to the resources you need for:

  • Market Research
  • Identifying Your Customer Base
  • Business Plan Writing
  • Capital Acquisition
  • Creating Marketing Strategy/Social Media
  • Business Registration, Insurance, Liability
  • Register for Consulting


Take advantage of additional training sessions that are available at the LBDC and the Larimer SBDC offices. Utilize our resources and contact us with any questions about the next best step for you.
