Entrepreneurs Graduate from Kauffman Foundation Curriculum

The first class of FastTrac® graduates is hitting the streets! The FastTrac® TechVenture program has prepared more than a dozen local, creative and aspiring individuals for the excitement of running their own start-up companies.

The Kauffman Foundation developed the comprehensive business planning and entrepreneur preparation program. The FastTrac® TechVenture classes address the needs of technology-based start-up entrepreneurs who are refining their business concepts, writing their business plans and seeking to grow sustainable high-impact companies.

Participants included representatives from such area companies as Forston Labs, Advanced Microlabs, Road Narrows Robotics, Czero, Wirsol Solar, Stewart Energy and others. Some received scholarships from Larimer County and the WIRED (Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development) Initiative.

Rocky Mountain Innovation Initiative (RMI2), a business incubator for promising high tech start-ups, hosted the inaugural training program -- the first of its kind in Northern Colorado.
