Rural Entrepreneurship: New Laws & Listening Session

Event type: 
When and where
Thursday, September 30, 2021
10:00am MT

Please join Small Business Majority and the Southern Colorado SBDC as we host a listening session to hear directly from small business owners in rural areas. Let us know what matters most to you, what’s working well, what challenges you are facing, what could make things better, and what the highest priority solutions are that should be pursued. During this session, we will also be sharing information on the new laws and programs that passed, which will directly affect business owners.


We are looking for small business owners, solo entrepreneurs, or freelancers to join us to share their stories and perspectives. As businesses begin to reopen, we want to hear from you about: 

  • What challenges did you face during the pandemic? 
  • What challenges are you currently facing? 
  • How is your business is faring today? 
  • What policies are most important to you as a small business owner? 


This feedback will inform our organizations on preparation for outreach strategies, programmatic needs, technical assistance, and accessible program delivery for rural small business owners.
