Greeley: MBO Road Tour
MBO Rural Tour's...
mission is to expose businesses in Colorado to resources and contact 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.
