Grand Enterprise Initiative Making Strides

by Heath Dewey on July 30th, 2014

The Grand Enterprise Initiative is proud to have a positive impact on business owners and job growth in Grand County. The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments recently named Grand County the regional leader in job growth.

To learn more about the impact of the Grand Enterprise Initiative in Grand County read the excerpt below from the July 10, 2014 article in theSky-HiDaily News titled, " Grand County Leads the Region in Job Growth".

"Grand County Leads the Region in Job Growth."

"The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments recently named Grand County the regional leader in job growth, with an unemployment rate of 4.6 percent, which was lower than both the state and the national rates.

Job growth in the county increased by 4.4 percent from April 2013 to April 2014.

The spur of economic development in the county may partially be attributed to job-growth programs established in recent years, such as Grand County’s economic development department and the Grand Enterprise Initiative, which offers one-on-one free and confidential business management coaching to anyone who wants to start or expand a business.

Since starting in January 2013, Grand Enterprise Initiative facilitator Patrick Brower has managed to improve the business climate in Grand County."
