Denver– Last week the U.S. Small Business Administration announced that it will expand the Emerging 200 (e200), an executive-level training initiative for small business owners, in 2010. The initiative will continue in 10 cities that have participated in the past and expand into 12 communities with an emphasis on Native American business owners.
The comprehensive e200 curriculum provides strategies to help participating businesses explore options and also provides a range of practical tools for business development and job growth.
Greg Lopez, Colorado District Director said “We are looking forward to the e200 Native America and working together with our coalition partners. We hope the program will provide added tools to the Native American business community and stem growth.”
SBA recognizes the value of this opportunity to Colorado, and The Colorado District Office is proud to announce the 2010 community supporters.
Coalition Partners for e200 Native America program in Colorado are:

  • Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce

  • Native American Bank

  • Rocky Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council

  • The City of Aurora

  • Colorado Small Business Development Centers

  • Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce

  • SCORE- Denver Chapter

  • Denver Business Journal

In 2010, SBA will continue e200 with an emphasis on Native American business owners from Colorado. SBA looks forward to working with our coalition and valued partners to this effort.
