The Headwaters Project is the result of many hours of study, discussion, collaboration and focus. Rio Blanco County is truly unique with many attractive qualities that mean big opportunities for business owners and innovators. In 2015, Rio Blanco County was awarded the Certified Small Business Community designation by the Colorado Small Business Development Network and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. The designation brought with it excitement and support from our community members, business owners, potential business owners and innovators. As the CSBC program in Rio Blanco County developed, a few things became clear: our great potential and the need for ongoing business support services. As we near the end of the three year life cycle of the Certified Small Business Community designation and programming, we are looking forward to using the momentum as a stepping stone into this program that is tailored to fit our community’s culture and needs.
