We are here for Colorado’s small businesses.

Energize Colorado offers small businesses support —including access to funding, connections to free business advising, and programs that are aimed at helping you innovate and grow.

We are excited to announce the launch of our Energize Community Program (ECP), which focuses on funding readiness for four communities: East Colfax, Pueblo, Southwest Denver, and Child Care.

Learn about the upcoming Gap Fund loan that provides up to $20k at 2.5% interest.

We are focused on serving Colorado’s smallest and most underserved businesses across four priority groups: BIPOC, women, veteran, and rural.

Access resources, funding, and support that is curated and developed specifically for you.

Our flagship program, the Energize Community Program, provides small businesses with financial support and an accelerator.

We’ve supported over 2,000 Colorado businesses with over $31 million in funding. Over 90% of these funds supported BIPOC and women-owned businesses.

Explore our Energize Community Hub – a one stop shop for access to free business advising, resources, and events.

Knowledge is power for small business owners. We are excited to bring small business owners a new community-driven platform and support system to help you start and sustain your business. Explore our virtual Energize Colorado Hub, powered by EIC’s Startup Space platform. This hub integrates tools, knowledge, and support within one platform.
