MBO Rural Tour’s mission is to expose businesses in rural Colorado to resources and contacts that may be difficult to obtain in remote areas, mainly in the form of training sessions. These sessions connect small businesses with local and state resources, including the local SBDC; Connect2DOT; Workforce Development; SBA; CDOT purchasing agents; and local banks, lenders and micro lending institutions.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and share challenges with other entrepreneurs potentially facing the same issues.
