EforAll/EparaTodos Longmont To Expand Program Access to Aspiring Entrepreneurs Across Colorado

Organization to be called EforAll/EparaTodos Colorado  

LONGMONT, Colo. – March 20, 2024 – Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll), a nonprofit whose mission is to accelerate economic and social impact through inclusive entrepreneurship, today announces the rebrand of its EforAll/EparaTodos Longmont programs to EforAll/EparaTodos Colorado, as it expands its no-cost English and Spanish language business accelerator program access to residents across the state. Since its launch in 2020, the organization has supported nearly 100 new Longmont area businesses of which 80% are women owned, 73% are owned by people of color and 48% are immigrant owned.

“This expansion is a natural yet significant step forward for EforAll/EparaTodos Colorado,” says Regina Rodríguez-Manzanet, Executive Director. Success stories, like Angel Johnson’s ICONI in Englewood, Diego Montemayor’s Chamba in Denver, and Kate Stevens’ Garden of Oz in Fort Collins, fuel our commitment to widen our reach, supporting an even greater array of Colorado entrepreneurs and magnifying our impact.”

Currently, the site typically serves 30 aspiring entrepreneurs, annually, across its English and Spanish language programs. This expansion will enable the organization to support 100 ventures each year with critical early-stage business education and support by the end of 2026.

“From our roots in Longmont we’ve always served entrepreneurs beyond our city’s limits. Now we’re acknowledging that broader scope and vision by renaming our program EforAll Colorado,” said Seth Levine, partner at Foundry Group and EforAll Longmont council chair. “The spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship runs deep in Colorado and this expansion reflects who we are – a state committed to each other’s success, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.”

EforAll/EparaTodos Colorado is accepting applications for its upcoming Summer 2024 Business Accelerator programs, now through May 9. These programs are offered at no cost and are open to all Colorado residents.  Interested entrepreneurs can learn more or apply at https://eforall.org/programs/colorado-summer-2024-accelerator/ (English) or https://eforall.org/es/programs/colorado-acelerador-de-negocios-de-verano-2024/ (Spanish).
