MESA COUNTY, COLO Jan. 13, 2014— According to a recent article in the publication Entrepreneur and lauded by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper during his recent visit to Grand Junction, Mesa County is included on a list of best areas for a tech startup. In recognition of that consideration Mesa County Commissioners, along with elected officials and leaders of the City of Fruita, will this Wednesday tour the new Fruita branch of the Business Incubator Center while promoting the services the Incubator offers area businesses and startups.
For 22 years the award winning Business Incubator, the Grand Valley’s center for entrepreneurship, has aided the economic development of Mesa County by offering comprehensive services to businesses. With the 2013 opening of the Fruita branch, the Business Incubator has expanded to meet the needs of more local businesses.
A walkthrough and media event will be held at the Fruita branch of the Business Incubator, 325 E. Aspen, on Wednesday, January 15, at 3:30pm. Business Incubator staff along with elected officials from both the City of Fruita and Mesa County will be on-hand to comment on the value the Incubator Center provides, explain how the Center can help get an idea turned into a viable business and celebrate recent successes.
Commissioner Rose Pugliese says, “For many years the Business Incubator has offered proven results in expanding and diversifying Mesa County’s economy. The Incubator provides essential services to small businesses including loans and financial assistance, counseling and workshops, and business development. We celebrate the Incubator Center as an investment that is making tangible returns in the economic development of not just the City of Fruita, but in all of Mesa County.”
Please be on hand to acknowledge the successes of the Business Incubator and promote the business development opportunities the Center affords Grand Valley entrepreneurs.
