How much would you pay for a 72 page book that showed provided you with a checklist for starting a business, an overview of the various business legal structures (with pros and cons for each), information on tax (income, property, sales tax), employer responsibilities, marketing, financing, business owner liability, and much much more? Such a book, if it existed, would surely cost $24, $75, or even $100…right?
Well, such a book does exist but it doesn’t cost a penny. The Colorado Business Resource Guide is produced by the Colorado SBDC and is available for free as a PDF on our website and as a physical book at our Centers across the state. The Guide is available in both English and Spanish language versions. This book is an excellent primer for anyone considering going into business here in Colorado. The most commonly asked questions in regards to starting a business are answered within this book. In addition, the guide empowers readers to help themselves by providing contact information for the various state offices that oversee business here in Colorado.
And what’s already good is about to get even better when later this year the SBDC will unveil a newly revised version of the Colorado Business Resource Guide!
