REGION 10 ANNOUNCES CREATION OF COMMUNITY-DRIVEN

  Small Business Resource Center

With 40 years of experience serving local communities with programs and services that make the most of available dollars by leveraging resources, Region 10 was a natural fit when it came to developing a new satellite office to serve the Montrose-Delta Community.  The Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) is a collaborative effort among numerous local partner organizations. The SBRC will bring Technical Assistance educational programs for the benefit of local business owners – providing classes on Starting A business, using QuickBooks, using Excel, developing a professional business plan and much more.   Region 10 comes with the knowledge, expertise and support needed to take a new business from idea through implementation.

“This has been such a positive community partnership. From local banks, to the Chamber to the City, the local support has been overwhelming” Region 10 SBRC Director Vince Fandel said. “Our community needs a professionally-developed, driven and conducted technical assistance educational program for the small business owners with qualified instructors and counselors who can help our small business community expand.”

Community Partners to date, in addition to Region 10, include: Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Colorado Mesa University; Dalby Wendland & Company; City of Montrose; US Bank; Montrose Bank; Colorado Workforce ; Wells Fargo Bank; and Timberline Bank.

In addition to offering support services and classes through the SBRC in both Montrose and Delta locations, Region 10 will become a satellite office of the Small Business Development Center in May, with SBDC counselor Susan Bony available to consult on an as-needed basis.
