This exciting new approach to facilitating business growth in the Central Mountains begins with a quick, free online application process. After a selection process, participant companies will come together for the next eight weeks, 3 hours per week, building community and a network of support as they engage in group training with our industry experts and partners. An additional one or two hours a week will be devoted to engaging 1:1 with those and other experts diving deep into the specific business challenges of each participating team.
The program culminates with a high-profile Startup Summit + Demo Day in the Spring. There, each cohort company will share its progress and potential with a room of investors, partners, advisors, and community leaders from across Colorado and the country. Beyond the demo day, the Central Mountain Ascent team will continue to provide targeted support and promotion to drive business growth past the finish line.
