Larimer Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and its New Network

With the power and support of Front Range Community College behind them, and a new leader, the two Larimer SBDCs and the North Metro Denver SBDC have a bright future.

Bringing more than twenty years of experience as a small business owner, Glenn Plagen, the new SBDC leader, has increased the amount of consulting sessions at the North Metro Denver SBDC by more than 70% and positioned it as one of the premier centers of the Colorado SBDC Network.

The primary focus of the SBDC Network is to help businesses start, grow and prosper. The Larimer SBDC now has 32 professionals specializing in general business, finance, accounting, legal, marketing, social media and web design. In fact the SBDC completed a total of 1,362 consulting hours in 2012!

The Larimer SBDC is 100% Open for Business, consulting new and existing businesses and running a full schedule of workshops.

The SBDC is a collaborative partner with other community organizations such as the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce, NCBR, Fort Collins Downtown Business Association, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the City of Fort Collins.
