LEADING EDGE Graduates - May 2015

Thursday, May 07, 2015
Colorado LEADING EDGE is noted for its goal-setting curriculum to have a fully-realized business plan by the end of the course. Of 20 attendees, 18 received Certificates of Graduation and two received Certificates of Participation (with full intention to complete the plan soon). The instructors, Nancy Barnett, who also wrote the curriculum, and Chuck Hahn, Aurora's Small Business Specialist, were diligent to meet in class and one-on-one with the students to help them with each component of the plan. After 12 weeks of intensive learning, graduation finally arrived -- May 6, 2015!

With a catered dinner and prizes awarded, it was a moment for celebration. Pictured below is the first-place winner for the best written business plan. The photo also includes the instructors and sponsors of the program, including Fitzsimons Credit Union, Visit Aurora and the City of Aurora.

The next LEADING EDGE for the Aurora–South Metro SBDC is slated for the fall. To register for one of two free informational sessions, click here.
