Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace - Business Starts Here

On Friday, October 10, 2008 people will have the opportunity to participate in the first ever Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace, at the Otero Junior College in La Junta, Colorado. MarketPlace is the first event of its kind in this part of the country and will focus on how entrepreneurship and innovation can help our rural communities thrive by focusing on proven rural strategies to build assets and create economic opportunities from within.
The Colorado Rural Development Council (CRDC) is collaborating with the Center for Rural Affairs to host Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace. The event is modeled after two similar events held annually in North Dakota and Nebraska.

Exhibiting at Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to reach an audience seeking opportunities to start and grow their businesses. Individuals attending can make professional contacts, network with other entrepreneurs, and locate potential customers and suppliers. With 40 booths filled with successful small businesses and service providers, attendees will meet exhibitors with a broad array of business and professional experience.

Attendees may participate in information sessions focusing on financing, marketing, community development, agricultural, small business development and technology. Experts in many fields such as attorneys, accountants, web designers, etc. will be available to answer participant questions.

Entrepreneurs, farmers, ranchers, community leaders, rural developers, - everyone interested in revitalizing rural communities and rural economies will find many opportunities to  meet and converse with their peers and other experts about rural community development and issues impacting rural communities.
