The Catapult Start-Up to Storefront Program (2-1-2018 OPEN BODY MEETING)

URA and East Liberty Development, Inc. are working with Paramount Co-op to initiate this 9 month pilot program.
The program will provide one on one coaching to support up 10 East End entrepreneurs in start up. Candidates would receive business planning support, marketing strategies, and help with financing. URA priority is to ensure Larimer residents have support to start and grow. At least 3 slots will be reserved for Larimer residents or business owners. Additionally, they would like the pilot hub to be at the EEOC. Program still needs the consent of the LCG and Larimer residents. It also needs to be evaluated and approved by the URA Board. It will be presented to the board at the March 1st meeting.
