A Letter from the Director


Dear Entrepreneurs, 

February is Black History Month! The month of February is designated to commemorate and celebrate the rich traditions of the African American community and recognize the unique historical achievements and contributions. Let us begin this month by remembering the contributions made by prominent figures such as Garrett Morgan, inventor of the first traffic signal and the modern-day fire mask that has saved thousands of firemen lives; activists and civil rights leaders, including Medgar Evers, Ralph Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and the pivotal role she played in the Montgomery bus boycott, Barack Obama, the first African American who served as the 44th President of the United States and countless other African Americans who have made a profound impact in our nation. 

I am happy to announce the 2020 Advance Procurement Expo (ACPE) will take place on October 29, 2020. The ACPE is Colorado’s premier buyer's and seller's marketplace. Businesses throughout Colorado are invited to participate in this day-long event, which focuses on state and local government procurement.To sign up for registration notifications, click here.

Finally, I wanted to make sure you know about these two upcoming events in March:

  • The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver is hosting a three-hour workshop on March 5 for small business owners interested in certifications and for those who would like to learn more about government contracting opportunities. 
  • The Opportunity Council is hosting an educational workshop on how to perfect your sales pitch. Participant's names will be drawn and the selected persons will be able to pitch a room full of other businesses, including corporations, small businesses, and government entities. Contestants are able to win $500 prizes
