The Northwest Small Business Development Center opened its regional headquarters at the corner of Fielder Avenue and Main Street in Dillon last month. It is hosting an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.
The center, a nonprofit that receives funding from both the state and Colorado Mountain College, offers one-on-one consulting for local entrepreneurs.
Though the center also has offices in Glenwood Springs, Craig, Leadville, Steamboat Springs, Edwards and Breck, where clients receive their consultation is flexible and could include anything from their place of business to a coffee shop.
From a landscape company wanting to diversify its offerings to a designer of handmade leather goods looking to open an online store, the nonprofit group offers assistance to a diverse group of businesses.
In addition to individual consulting, the center is hoping to beef up its training program, which would involve public classes. Recently, the Summit Association of Realtors signed on as sponsor to offer its membership business courses specific to real estate in the High County.
