Our community partner, Energize Colorado, is launching a new Energize Community Program (ECP), that aligns with the African Leadership Group Business Entrepreneurship Workshop, where you will learn about upcoming funding opportunities throughout the state, and much more… you don’t want to miss out!
ECP includes funding readiness workshops, low-interest Gap Fund loans up to $20k, and an accelerator program valued at $1,200. This program serves small businesses across four communities: East Colfax, Pueblo, Southwest Denver, and the Child Care Industry.
Please join us for our Funding Readiness Workshops. We will host the first virtual event on TUESDAY, APRIL 5 AT 4 P.M. to share information about Gap Fund loans, the State of Colorado’s Startup Loan Fund, and child care provider grants and loans. If you are unable to join via computer, you can still call into the meeting. To register for the meeting, please visit: bit.ly/ecp_signup. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
The Funding Readiness Workshops begin in April and end in May. They will cover:
- Learning About Upcoming Statewide Funding Opportunities
- Understanding Your Balance Sheet and Projections
- Creating a Business Plan for Your Loan Documents
- Creating a Profit & Loss Statement for Your Loan Documents
The Gap Fund loan application period is May 2-20th, 2022.
