Thanks to a partnership between JWU’s Denver Campus and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, entrepreneurs in the Northeast region of the city have access to a helpful new resource: a satellite office of the Denver Metro Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Serving a growing number of clients, the center, which is located within JWU's College of Business, has provided more than 330 hours of consulting, at an average of more than 7 consult hours per client. In addition, SBDC-sponsored seminars like “The Economic Stimulus: What It Really Means for Small Businesses” have drawn consistent crowds. The center has also engaged JWU business majors from various classes to provide additional services to small business clients. Students in a market research class conducted a needs survey of local small businesses; they then developed recommendations based on their findings. The SBDC will utilize these recommendations to improve community outreach and its overall suite of services. For more information, contact the Denver Metro SBDC.
