The Colorado Business Resource Guide is one of the most successful and comprehensive business start-up guides in the nation. The Colorado Business Resource Guide is made possible by a collaborative effort between federal and state business assistance agencies and the private sector. As federal and state agency budgets are reduced, this public-private partnership has become the most cost-effective way to produce this tremendous guide.
