"The SBDC was vital in helping us get our swim school off of the ground. The consultant helped us revise our business plan and to secure our financing”In the fall of 2012, they began exploring the north metro area for the perfect location for their swim school, while simultaneously working with their friends at the Houston Swim Club to make their dream of a swim school become a reality. They contacted the North Metro Denver SBDC and connected with a SBDC consultant who was excited about their idea and was extremely supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. Brent and Stephanie encountered many road blocks along the way and the SBDC was right there at every step to offer guidance and suggestions, and provide the tools to pave the road to success. The SBDC consultant also helped promote the business by offering marketing strategies as well as connecting Brent and Stephanie with members of the community who helped to keep the ball rolling. “The SBDC was vital in helping us get our swim school off of the ground. The consultant helped us revise our business plan and to secure our financing. We are so grateful to have worked with such an amazing group of people.”
After countless hours of planning and negotiating, they finally broke ground in March of 2013 in Broomfield. On August 12th, Colorado Swim School opened its doors for swim lessons. Initially just ten families were enrolled, but in just six short months there are almost 200 families registered and they are continually hiring new employees.
Brent and Stephanie will continue to promote the Colorado Swim School’s mission, which is to provide a proven learning process where babies, toddlers, children, and adults can take steps toward mastering comfort in the water, learning to swim, enhancing & refining strokes, and more importantly, becoming safer and more aware in and around bodies of water. They are still in contact with the SBDC consultant who turned their dream into a reality and are also proud to admit that both of their children are now avid swimmers and are interested in trying out for swim teams!
