"CEF made it possible for us to buy our building, grow our business and show our financial strength to secure an annual line of credit from another local institution."
~ Scott Baker, Icebox Knitting


“CEF has given me all the tools and support to help grow my business. I couldn't have asked for more.  They have been amazing!”
~ Valerie DeMasi, Baby Bodywork


“Colorado Enterprise Fund gave us a chance when no one else would. As a small start-up business, we found the CEF to be one of most beneficial entities in our arsenal; a community of people that helped us realize our dreams. Thank you Colorado Enterprise Fund!”
~ Carissa Miller, Black Shirt Brewing Co.


“Colorado Enterprise Fund has been flexible and responsive to our needs during the various phases of our business growth. Without CEF we wouldn’t be in business today….Into the future, we will continue to stay in touch with Colorado Enterprise Fund for our working capital needs.”
~ Don Fesenmeyer, Don’s Custom Cabinets & Countertops


“This loan from Colorado Enterprise is just what we needed to increase our participation in the Denver commercial construction boom. We have already added 2 employees and are expecting to add another 6 to 10 through the first part of 2014.  Within the next year this loan should be directly responsible for 10 full time jobs. With this expanded capacity we will be able to not only increase our role at the Denver International Airport South Terminal Redevelopment, but we will be able to pursue other projects as well. Thank you again.”
~ Jessica Adams and Justin Van Houten, Living Design Studios


"Patti and I wanted to thank you for all your assistance in getting our loan approved. Your helpful insights, personal time spent reviewing our application and direction provided to your team, helped make the loan process as easy and stress free as possible.  As for your team, Hannah and Angela are, well, stars is a good word.   They are responsive, knowledgeable and caring, traits that are too often lacking in today’s world.  We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with you and your team at CEF.  Again, your professionalism has been truly appreciated."
~ Ken and Patti Leith, (e)Gauge Inc.


"Through the assistance of CEF, first through direct financing to support our building renovation project, and secondarily through services such as marketing and training on various analytical tools and programs, we continue to build our business.  On behalf of our entire Board, we cannot thank CEF enough for what we have been provided.  More broadly, as a member of the small business community in this thriving city, I thank you for what this organization does for small businesses overall.  It's truly incredible the level of support provided after the loan closes."

~ Brigitte Sinclair,1080 Learning Center
