With the ambitious goal to make Colorado Springs the most business-friendly city in the US, Colorado Springs for Small Business Advancement (COSSBA) brings together entrepreneurs, business service organizations, government agencies, and business advocates in the Pikes Peak region to better provide support and shape the future for how entrepreneurs navigate the city’s regulations and processes.

This session will highlight efforts underway with COSSBA including COSopenforbiz.com, a step-by-step guide to help entrepreneurs go from a great idea to a grand opening. Entrepreneurs will also have an opportunity to meet key points of contact within some of the agencies businesses interface with such as Colorado Springs Utilities, Regional Building, and City of Colorado Springs.
