Ignite your entrepreneurial spirit.

Startup Colorado offers a select number of individual scholarships and community sponsorships to foster entrepreneurial growth in rural Colorado. Our goal is to eliminate any roadblocks that stand in the way of you or your organization attending or organizing educational, networking, or community building events. Check out our initiatives below to learn how you can apply.

Individual Scholarships

We get it. There’s a lot going on in your world and expenses add up fast. If attending that conference, participating in that workshop, or rubbing shoulders at that meet-n-greet will kickstart your business goals, we want to help. Scholarships are available for entrepreneurs and community champions on a rolling basis. Learn more.

Startup Colorado provided travel scholarships for the Pikes Peak Small Business Week in 2019.

Community Sponsorships

Thriving startup communities regularly convene entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, and others who are interested in entrepreneurship. These gatherings are important to building relationships and supporting one another throughout the entrepreneurial journey.

Startup Colorado has sponsored large-scale conferences like The Wright and evening get-togethers like Dinner Conversations in Vail. Read our event guidelines to learn more about our sponsorship requirements.

Entrepreneurs learn from interacting with one another irrespective of industry boundaries.
