Telluride Active Apparel Company Benefits from Region 10 Loan Program

Telluride Active Apparel Company Benefits from Region 10 Loan Program

Kelly and Will Watters were working as skiing and fly-fishing guides when they began searching for functional, yet stylish clothing that would be stretchy, breathable, and water-resistant, and also appropriate for wearing downtown to meet a client.

“We started out of a personal need,” said Kelly, who with her husband founded the active apparel company Western Rise in 2014. “We discovered a lot of clothes were not the style we were looking for. They were not something we’d wear every day. We were hunting for more classic, timeless clothing we could incorporate into our wardrobe.

“We wanted one set of apparel that would perform for all of those things; less is more.”

Looking to grow their company, the Watters turned to Region 10, a Montrose-based nonprofit that offers assistance for new and expanding businesses in six western Colorado counties. The Telluride-based company got a major boost in June after it received a loan from the Rural Business Loan Fund Statewide Collaboration through the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

“It’s a new funding source available; Region 10 was the first Loan Fund in the state to successfully disburse the funds,” said Region 10 Business Loan Fund director Dan Scinto, noting there are additional funds available for similar start-up projects.

The loans are geared toward businesses in underserved markets (the Western Slope, for example where there is less access to capital). The program also distributes loans based on the companies’ merits – “the people operating the business versus the proven cash-flow of the business,” Scinto said.

Will Waters is a third-generation fiber manufacturer who understands how to custom-design fabrics to be high performing.

“They have a true passion for the fibers and the process of materials that go into their products,” Scinto said.

Region 10 provided valuable business advice and helped them navigate the loan application process, Kelly said.

The loan they received allowed the Watters to grow their team, focus on reaching “higher sales goals,” and purchase inventory. Western Rise generally launches new collections seasonally, but is looking to move toward a monthly collection launch, Kelly said.

The company brought on three new employees this year, doubling its team members from three to six.

“We expect to add two more employees in spring of next year,” Kelly said. “We’re trying to grow our base office in Telluride. It’s been a great community for our business. Telluride is an awesome place to product test – if it holds up in Telluride, it will hold up anywhere.”

Region 10’s Business Loan Fund assists local businesses and non-profits located within Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties. The Business Loan Fund focuses on loans that help create or retain jobs, and/or establishes or expands needed businesses in the region.

Two Colorado Companies to Watch Based in Western Colorado

Two Colorado Companies to Watch Based in Western Colorado

 

Two Western Slope-based businesses were each named a 2017 Colorado Company to Watch – an award recognizing companies that have passed the start-up stage, are growing, and contributing to their local economies.

ShadeScapes in Hotchkiss, and Mayfly Outdoors in Montrose – were among the 50 companies honored this summer at the Colorado Companies to Watch ninth annual Awards Gala in Denver. More than 500 companies throughout the state were nominated.

Jo Edmondson, ShadeScapes founder and CEO, distributes high-quality shade products such as umbrellas and cabanas, for five different companies in Belgian, South Africa, Montreal, and Germany.

With a warehouse in Delta and an office and showroom in Hotchkiss, Edmondson employs 14 people – including two in Delta and 10 in Hotchkiss. ShadeScapes sells to contractors, landscape architects, dealers, designers, commercial businesses and private homeowners.

The Rural Economic Development Initiative awarded a $65,000 grant to Edmondson toward the purchase of a 1905 mercantile building in downtown Hotchkiss because of the company’s potential to revitalize a depressed part of Colorado. The building at 122 Bridge St. was purchased and renovated in 2015, and the company moved in March 2016.

Not only has Edmondson created jobs in the North Fork Valley – an area hurting from coal industry job losses – the showroom has “breathed some life into the community,” Edmondson said, by serving various nonprofit groups after hours. Delta County Memorial Hospital, Rotary Club of the North Fork Valley, the Hotchkiss Chamber of Commerce, and Kid’s Pasta Project have all used the building for events and/or meetings.

Nancy Murphy, director of the Small Business Development (Region 10) and West Central SBDC, Satellite Office in Montrose, nominated ShadeScapes for the award because of the “amazing” things the company is doing for the community.

“They’ve turned the building into a hip, urban style office that showcases their stunning shade structures in downtown Hotchkiss, which has added vibrancy to the community,” Murphy said.

Being named a Colorado Company to Watch is a big deal, Edmundson said.

“We’re definitely energized by it; we’re grateful for it. It will help get the word out about who we are – we’re a Colorado company, with beautiful products in a small town.  The award helps us to spread our wings.”

Each of the 50 winners is expected to host an event that publicizes their awards.

“We’ll do that in Hotchkiss (October 6) but we also want to tell our story around the state and so we are going to go on a tour,” Edmundson said. “We’re going to have pop-up showrooms in Aspen and Denver.”

The Western Slope’s other Colorado Company to Watch – Mayflower Outdoors – is an outdoor product investment company that focuses on businesses that are under-managed, or under funded, said Mayfly president David Dragoo.

“We take over, operate them and turn them around,” he said.

Dragoo founded Mayfly in Colorado Springs in 2012, from where he already operated two businesses – Abel Reels and Charlton Reels, makers of fly-fishing reels and accessories. He moved his company to Montrose in August 2016 after purchasing Ross Reels, a Montrose business founded in 1983. Mayfly’s office and factory are located at 11 Ponderosa Court. The company employs 50 people  – 33 in Montrose, and 16 in California.

“The award brings recognition to Montrose and is good for the community,” Dragoo said. “And it’s beneficial for local and statewide recruiting. One of our goals is to create more jobs here.”

Dragoo is encouraging other businesses to set up shop in Montrose with the development of a business park along the Uncompahgre River where he has purchased property and is building a new factory for Mayfly. Dragoo is also improving fish habitat along a stretch of the river and is partnering with Montrose, the city recreation district, and Great Outdoors Colorado to construct a walkway along the river.

“One of our goals is to create a nice path, a good place to fly fish, and quality fish habitat,” he said.

Being named a Colorado Company to Watch shows that Montrose has a “compelling economic environment for business people like us,” Dragoo said.

Both Murphy and Montrose Economic Development Corporation executive director Sandy Head nominated Mayfly for the award.

“They’re working to develop (the riverfront property) into an outdoor recreation manufacturing hub – along with other businesses,” like restaurants and brewpubs, Head said. They’re going to develop a piece of land that has been idle for years. It will attract other manufacturers. Mayfly is most deserving of Colorado Company to Watch.”

BLF Helps Boost Power Logic Electrical and Telluride Window Coverings

Most small business owners have a hard time imagining doing more than one business at a time. Not Steve Peirick. This is a guy whose entrepreneurial spirit works like a snowball rolling downhill—starting off small, quickly growing as it gains momentum, and becoming a force to reckon with in due time.

As owner of Power Logic Electrical and Telluride Window Coverings, Peirick has become a fixture in the Western Slope business community over the last decade. And he is working to increase his investment into the Western Slope with some help from Region 10’s Business Loan Fund.

Peirick first crossed paths with Region 10 back in 2013. He reached out to the organization’s small business development wing when he was looking to grow Power Logic Electrical, his electrical contracting business that served primarily Telluride.

“I first worked with Vince Fandel, who helped me with cash flow for Power Logic Electric,” Peirick comments. “I got to know Region 10 well, and enjoyed working with them because they were focused on creating jobs and supporting small business.”

Shortly after ramping up operations at Power Logic Electrical, the wheels in Peirick’s mind started turning. While installing and wiring custom, motorized window coverings, he noticed a niche market that was ripe for the picking.

As he built relationships with interior designers for high-end homes, Peirick found that he could better serve the Telluride marketplace by supplying the vendors himself. So he launched Telluride Window Coverings, which grew and became the premier retail provider and installer of all window treatments (blinds, shutters, drapery, etc.) in the area.

Several years after the launch, Peirick decided it was time for a change in scenery.

Being so remote, Telluride was difficult to supply. Most shipments were coming from out-of-state, which created gaps in delivery time. On top of that, Peirick was experiencing some quality control issues. Not only were products taking forever to arrive, but they were also incorrect.

“So I decided to try it myself,” he laughs.

Yes, that’s right—ANOTHER business venture.

Peirick relocated to Montrose, moving into the old Jeans Westerner building after it was subdivided. The new building gave him the space to create another offshoot of Telluride Window Coverings, which focused on manufacturing window treatments and interior products. Rather than shipping his products in, he hired a seamstress to build his own unique, custom products.

Region 10 again helped Peirick secure the loan that helped him with the real estate and cover some capital costs.

Since Peirick’s business presented the opportunity for job development, Region 10 jumped at the opportunity to support him again. Shortly after the partnership, Peirick was able to hire another four people: one full-time and three part-time. His goal is to keep growing and potentially hire more down the line.

Peirick considers Region 10 to be a vital component of his success.

“Every experience that I’ve had with Region 10 has been beneficial and pleasant,” he adds. “They are in for your best interests and you can definitely feel that when you work with them. They want your business to succeed.”

Things are hopping business-wise on the Western Slope.  From the reimagined activities of Chambers of Commerce in just about every community and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) offices located in Grand Junction, Montrose, Gunnison, and Durango to the recent proliferation of coworking spaces, incubators, accelerators, and innovation centers dotting the “corridor of innovation”, you’re sure to find the support and inspiration you need to reach the dream of running your own business.

  1. Local Chambers serve as the voice for local businesses. While many focus on the promotion of area tourism and retail shopping destinations, many also represent the interest of business at all levels of government, provide networking opportunities, and engage in community development activities.
  2. Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) have a presence in Grand Junction at the Business Incubator, in Gunnison at the ICE Lab on Western Colorado State University campus (as well as a satellite office in Montrose at Region 10), and in Durango at Fort Lewis College. SBDCs offer low or no-cost consulting, training, and specialty programs for startups, solopreneurs, small businesses, and small manufacturers.
  3. Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center serves a six-county area including Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Ouray, and San Miguel counties.

  5. Grand Junction’s Business Incubator was voted National Business Incubator Association’s (NBIA) Incubator of the Year in 2012/2013—out of more than 7,000 incubators worldwide. In addition to providing SBDC services, it leases space to client companies and provides access to a licensed commercial kitchen, a makerspace, and light manufacturing area as well as providing affiliate space, with hourly rent and shared services, for those who don’t need a full-time workspace.
  6. Newest in the pack, and still under development, is the upcoming Delta Innovation Center’ s ENGAGE (ENergy, Growth, AGriculture, and Entrepreneurship) a project of the Delta County Public Schools and Delta-Montrose Technical College. Planned to be a combination office space, coworking, workshop, and training venue, it will also serve as an innovation hub for agricultural technology, energy, and value-added food development.  ENGAGE is expected to open in 2018.
  7. ICE Lab, located on the Western State campus in Gunnison, is a mentor-driven program that pairs high-growth startups with industry specific mentors, advisors, and investors. Selected businesses undergo 12 weeks of acceleration programming, mentorship, and training, culminating in a pitch day to investors from across Colorado and beyond. https://icelab.co/

Directing and facilitating such conversations has earned the TVA a reputation for being a global hub for entrepreneurial thinking.  Since 2012, eighteen startup companies have graduated the program and raised more than $1 million with the help of a world-class network of more than 90 mentors spanning the globe. As a result, more than 87 jobs have been created. http://www.tellurideva.com
  10. Southwest Innovation Corridor (SWIC) is a neutral coordinator, convener, and capacity-building initiative of the Telluride Foundation. Its purpose is to create a coordinated hub of innovation by bringing together efforts to inspire idea creation, cultivate business innovation, and build an eco-system to support sustainable outcomes. SWIC serves new and existing entrepreneurs and innovators in an eight county area, including Delta, Montrose, Ouray, San Miguel, Montezuma, Dolores, San Juan and La Plata counties, and partners with the Telluride Venture Accelerator, Ft. Lewis College, Regions 9 & 10 Economic Development Districts, Southwest Colorado Accelerator Program for Entrepreneurs, co-working spaces, and SBDCs.

Region 10 Offers Leadership Training to Area

Region 10 Offers Leadership Training to Area

Successful businesses know the importance of investing in high performing employees and moving them into leadership roles within the company, but few business owners actually know how to develop leaders.   Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center is hosting a three-day leadership training on Thursday and Friday, April 13th-14th and Friday, April 21st. The training will take place at Region 10’s office, located at 300 Cascade Avenue in Montrose.  The cost is $395.

Leader Effectiveness Training (L.E.T.) is for businesses looking to develop individuals and more engaged, high performing teams. Created by the Gordon Training International, this training will show managers how to increase personal and team productivity, spend less time on “people issues”, and dramatically increase team collaboration.  Companies cited on “Best Places to Work” lists like Fortune 100 companies and best places to work in Colorado use this training as a foundation for great employer/employee relations.

“This training is essential for managers,” said certified L.E.T. trainer and human resources consultant Dave Knutson, who has been facilitating L.E.T. trainings for 25 years.  “It builds strong working relationships and reduces employee turnover…  because people don’t leave companies, they leave bad managers,” he added.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Clearly identify problem ownership;
  • Apply active listening skills to create effective solutions;
  • Avoid communication roadblocks that interfere with problem solving;
  • Practice constructive confrontation that results in lasting behavior changes; and
  • Recognize approaches to conflict and apply true win-win approaches.

Knutson brings 30 years of leadership consulting, coaching, and training in the private, nonprofit, and local government sectors. Designated the Human Resources Professional of the Year by the Western Colorado Human Resources Association, he has also been awarded the Pinnacle Award, The Society of Human Resource Management’s highest level of recognition in the profession, and the national Workforce Readiness Award.

“While Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center provides consulting services and training opportunities for small businesses, it is our goal to expand services by providing second-stage and growth businesses with access to essential trainings that only larger, more established businesses have access to.  L.E.T. is one of those opportunities,” said Nancy Murphy, director of small business development.  “We’re thrilled to be able to offer training of this caliber at this price to area businesses.”

Normally priced at $1695, this training is available for only $395.  Limited space is available.  To register, go to https://r10-let.eventbrite.com.  For more information about the workshop, contact Nancy Murphy 970-765-3130 or nancy@region10.net

Delta shed builder gets boost from SBDC & BLF

Delta shed builder gets boost from SBDC & BLF

Ivan Burch’s business name says it all: Well-Built Sheds. He has been making high-quality and portable sheds and cabins in Delta for over five years. But he needed some help building his business.

Burch was eager to grow his business, and had a “verbal business plan,” but wasn’t exactly certain on next steps.

“I know where I wanted to go, but not necessarily how to get there—and [Region 10] helped me get there,” Burch adds. A friend of his introduced him to Region 10, the Small Business Development Center, and the Business Loan Fund.

“I had no idea these resources existed before,” Burch comments.

“Ivan initially came in to gather information about what to do to get started on purchasing an existing business,” says Dan Scinto, Business Loan Fund Director at Region 10. “Like most people who have not done this before he had a lot of questions to ask and even wondered if he was asking the right questions.”

Burch split his time between Scinto and John Angelo, SBDC Consultant. Scinto worked to find gap financing for Burch’s business plans, while Angelo helped by providing market research and business plan fine-tuning—all for free.

“Through multiple visits when we were able to define a path to take that made sense to Ivan and enabled us to arrange a financing package that would work for all concerned,” Scinto adds.

“Those guys have been instrumental in helping me in this process,” Burch referencing Angelo and Scinto. “I was highly impressed with what Region 10 had to offer.”

With the support of Region 10, Burch hopes to take his business to the next level.

Brewery and nonprofit team up to preserve Gunnison trails

Brewery and nonprofit team up to preserve Gunnison trails

Back in March 2015, we shared the story of High Alpine Brewing Company, and how Region 10 helped give them a jump start. It’s the story of Bryan Wickenhauser, Scott Cline, Jon Brown working to provide a much needed service and product in Gunnison, Colorado: brewing and serving quality craft beer.

But this project has always been more than just brewing beer. High Alpine owns a unique relationship with its location. Its tagline – “Where beer meets tree line” – demonstrates the company’s commitment to its pristine, high-altitude surroundings.

It only seemed natural then for High Alpine to partner with Gunnison Trails, a nonprofit advocacy group who works preserve trail-based education, conservation, and recreation in Gunnison County.

The two teamed up to create Penny for Trails, a fundraising effort that adds one cent to every dollar spent on food and beverage at the brewery.

“Partnering with Gunnison Trails fits our philosophy of giving back and ties in well with our business model,” Cline adds.

“We’re honored that these guys have that kind of confidence in our mission and out organization,” states Dave Wiens, Executive Director of Gunnison Trails.

The Penny program had a kickoff party on January 19th, and is still going strong.

These are the type of ventures that only come to fruition when the community invests in its local economies.

Business Loan Fund lends thanks to our community

Business Loan Fund lends thanks to our community

Special recognition goes to Montrose County for acting as the sponsor for the State of Colorado’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program facilitated by Region 10. Through the program, Region 10 provides loans to businesses across six counties including Montrose, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Delta, Ouray, and San Miguel. Utilizing the CDBG program, the loan fund has given many businesses throughout the region access to capital through involvement in the program.

Often the CBDG funds assist a business with “gap” financing, allowing a business to combine personal assets and traditional bank financing with additional access to capital through the CBDG program to complete a loan package. This partnership with local banks in the area serves as an essential collaboration and contributes exponentially to the success of the businesses, thereby translating directly into job expansion and retention, as well as the overall vitality of the region.

Through the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), the contract has been expanded and extended to further facilitate job creation and economic diversification within the region until November 2018.  Businesses that will benefit from this unique approach to business lending include hotels, breweries, retail sales, service, and health care. The contract is in effect until November 2018.

For more information on the program and Region 10’s Loan Fund or to see if your business could benefit from this approach to commercial lending, please contact Region 10 Business Loan Fund Director Dan Scinto at 970-765-3126.

Small business owners: We have the road map to success!

Small business owners: We have the road map to success!

 

Our goal at Region 10’s Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) is to support, develop, and grow successful businesses.  Whether it is a startup or an existing business, we’ve developed a road map that we believe will support and develop successful businesses throughout the area.

While the SBRC continues to offer free or low-cost workshops, training, and consulting services, we have refined our delivery process in order to serve more clients more efficiently and utilize our consultants and budget more effectively.

For “Starting a Business” Clients

For clients who are looking to start a business, the SBRC offers the Colorado Business Resource Guide.  The guide is an incredible resource for any business, referencing most city, state, and federal forms needed to establish a business in the state, as well as in-depth information about legal structure and registration, income and property tax, Colorado state tax, employer responsibilities, bookkeeping, sources of assistance, business planning, marketing, financing options, liabilities and insurance, and trademarks, copyrights, and patents.

After our client receives the Colorado Business Resource Guide, their contact information is entered into our email database and they begin receiving information about upcoming training and workshops.  These classes include “10 Thing You Need to Know before Starting a Business”, informs new business hopefuls about the common pitfalls of starting a business so they don’t make the same mistakes; “Starting a Business in Colorado”; provides the steps to register a business, test market viability, identify a target market, and develop a cash flow spreadsheet; and “Lean Business Planning”, a step-by-step business planning tool that helps clients identify their goals and outlines how to achieve them.

For “Existing Business” Clients

We believe that planning is the key to success for any business.  In fact, existing businesses with business plans grow 30 percent faster than businesses without a plan.  And because most existing businesses that request consulting from the SBRC are looking to increase revenue, we think it is important for them to have a business plan, a marketing plan, or both.  If a business seeks assistance from the SBRC—either for funding and/or consulting—we generally require them to develop a business plan first.

The Plan Unlocks the Door

Once the client has submitted their business plan, the doors magically open to all of the SBRC’s resources.  Clients gain access to the Loan Fund and free consulting by our functional and industry experts, as well as special Small Business Development Center (SBDC) programs, including:

  • SBDC Advanced, an economic gardening program focused on helping Colorado companies grow by providing custom-fit market research and corporate-level tools that might otherwise be out of reach for small to mid-sized businesses;
  • Connect2DOT, a certification process that prepares qualifying businesses to bid on various CDOT state and municipal projects; and
  • Small Manufacturer’s AdvantEDGE (SMA), which provides coaching, consultation, and/or training by industry experts to small manufacturers based on the challenges manufacturers face.

For Everyone

Startups and existing businesses alike always have access to the variety of workshops we have available in functional areas, including bookkeeping, marketing, management, and operations.  Please check our calendar of events for dates and times.

If you have questions, comments, ideas for workshops and trainings, or know of anyone who would benefit from our SBRC offerings, please contact us:
