Now Open: NoCo Business Survey 3.o

Northern Colorado economic development focused organizations have been collaborating to understand business challenges since the Stay At Home Order was issued last March. Our previous surveys have helped inform elected officials, design assistance programs at the regional and municipal scale, apply for grant funding to support businesses and workers, and has helped us focus our efforts where we can make a difference to support our businesses.
Please share 10 minutes of your time and your valuable business experiences with us so that we can continue to make a positive impact for businesses during the ongoing COVID-19 response and recovery process.
