Demystifying Entrepreneurship workshops, hosted across the state of Colorado, are an interactive certificate course for anyone interested in launching his or her own business or improving upon an existing business. It provides a fundamental framework and toolset that helps entrepreneurs develop sought-after products and services, avoid pitfalls and succeed at entrepreneurship. These unique programs allow the University of Colorado Boulder and Leeds School greater exposure to mountain communities and potential partnerships in the future. Exposure to these mountain communities will provide potential data sources for research in the future. In turn, the small mountain communities are impacted through the University of Colorado Boulder’s knowledge that will lead to better economic viability and sustainability.
