The mission of Colorado Enterprise Fund is to accelerate community prosperity by financing and supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses.
CEF is headquartered in Denver and makes loans exclusively to Colorado-based businesses. We have provided small business loans and technical assistance to Colorado's economically and socially disadvantaged entrepreneurs and small business owners since 1976. In that time we have made over 2,000 small business loans totaling over $62 million to help to create or retain more than 17,000 jobs.
CEF serves entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout Colorado. CEF's services are targeted to low-income, racial and ethnic minority business owners who often lack adequate access to capital to start or grow their small businesses. A critical component of our work is providing low or no-cost business training and technical assistance to help our clients build their capacity to become successful business owners and borrowers.
We invite you to watch a short video featuring current and past borrowers, policy makers and community partners who feel passionately about Colorado Enterprise Fund!
