Mountain Pitch Summit 2020


We had a special guest for our September Coffee Chat; CoVenture Executive Director Mike Lowe led us in a conversation about navigating successful business growth over Covid-19. Michael introduced us to aligning resources to get set up for market opportunities. We also heard from pitch night participants telling us how they were able to secure funding and scale their business.

CoVenture is a business incubator focused on economic resiliency for the Roaring Fork Valley. In Spring 2020 alone, CoVenture has helped 50+ entrepreneurs and small businesses obtain over $1 million in funding and have been effective in helping local businesses pivot to strategies that are saving jobs.
