Good Business Colorado is hosting a local event in Leadville on October 4, as part of a statewide program to promote local small businesses across Colorado. It’s partnering with local businesses to discuss and solve pandemic and climate change problems.
Leadville will be the first stop of their 2021 statewide Road Tour to meet with Lake, Chaffee, Eagle, and Summit County business owners about COVID–19 pandemic resources and climate change. The partnerships includes: Cloud City Conservation Center, Full Circle of Lake County, Leadville / Lake County Economic Development Corporation, Salida Chamber of Commerce, Startup Colorado, and Walking Mountains Science Center,
“With shorter, drier winters and an increased risk of fire, mountain communities in Colorado are already feeling the pinch of climate change,” said Emily Olsen, Executive Director of Cloud City Conservation Center. “We’re excited to see Good Business Colorado talking with more business owners in communities around the state to help solve this problem and give our local businesses a boost.”
“Across the state, we’re hearing from business owners about the frustration they are experiencing trying to recover from the COVID–19 pandemic. They’re also concerned with how recent floods, fires, and mudslides are impacting their communities and their businesses,” said Good Business Colorado Executive Director Debra Brown.
“We know amazing things happen when business leaders come together to solve problems and so we encourage businesses of all sizes and industries to join us for these conversations to make their voices heard and work towards solutions.”
The event runs from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Monday, October 4, 2021, at Freight, 320 East 9th St., Leadville, CO.
