SBA launches small business economic hotline

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Colorado District Office has launched its first-ever Small Business Economic Hotline in response to the concerns raised by the state’s small business community during these uncertain economic times.

The purpose of this hotline is to give small business owners a single phone number they can call with business related questions. Calls to this phone number will be returned within one hour by SBA staff in Denver. The phone number is (303) 844-2607, Ext. 401.

 “Small businesses across Colorado have raised concerns about ways they can better survive given today’s economic situation,” stated Greg Lopez, SBA’s Colorado District Director. “I believe it is critical that the SBA provide a single phone number for our small business community to get the answers they need on questions relating to surviving in this environment. Our business experts from the Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, and the Mi Casa Resource Center can advise them on ways to enhance their marketing plans, re-evaluate their business plans, and look for new sources of financing. Many of these services are free of charge and are available across the state.”
