The Colorado Business Incubation Association (CBIA) promotes entrepreneurship throughout Colorado. One of CBIA’s objectives is to provide training and education to its members in the form of one-day conferences twice a year. The programs for these conferences include “lessons learned” from seasoned business incubator managers, legislative updates, identification of resources and many other topics that provide valuable information to planned, emerging and established business incubators.Fall Conference 2009 is being held at the award winning Grand Junction Business Incubator Center on Thursday, October 8th. The theme of this one-day conference is “Business Incubation During These Changing Economic Times”. You will hear from seasoned incubator managers and representatives from organizations that fund incubator start-up costs and ongoing operations and also tour the Business Incubator Center. At the end of the day, we will enjoy some great networking time as we tour two wineries and finish with dinner at the Wine Country Inn!
