Mapping the Strength of Colorado's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

October 2020 – Ongoing // Statewide Colorado

From the Western Slope to the Eastern Plains, we work to cultivate the growth of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial communities by helping startups tap into educational, financial, and collaborative resources.

Startup Colorado aims to elevate and support the activities that your local ecosystem builders and business support organizations are already doing 365 days a year. While rural Colorado may not have the resource and population density of urban hubs, we do have collective action and true collaboration. The Startup Colorado Network is proof of our trusted relationships and is built with insights and input from 50 or our closest partners across the state.

Our team at Visible Network Labs is working with Startup Colorado to map and visualize the state’s Entrepreneurial Ecosystem at both an individual and organizational level. By identifying the ways support networks help entrepreneurs, along with gaps that can be improved, the project aims to build a stronger, more resilient network of support throughout the state of Colorado.
