What We Achieved Together in 2023

“I’m extremely proud to be part of this program. It taught me that we can only go so far alone. Being surrounded by these amazing entrepreneurs has pushed my dreams by showing me theirs. The team is amazing — they will not allow you to doubt yourself for a second.”

As 2023 comes to an end, we wanted to celebrate a few highlights from the past year at RMMFI:

  • 99 entrepreneurs graduated from Business Launch Boot Camp at 6 sites in Colorado.
  • 315 entrepreneurs in total completed programs across the Idea, Launch, and Thrive phases of the RMMFI journey.
  • We invested $531,360 in local small business owners through loans and grants.
  • Our community-centered growth continued with the addition of Spanish-language programming in the San Luis Valley and a new Spanish-language pilot program in Gunnison.

By helping people and communities activate their potential, we are creating impact that will last through generations. Thank you for your ongoing support of inclusive entrepreneurship, and Happy New Year from all of us at RMMFI!
