DENVER, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorado's vibrant community of small business owners, entrepreneurs, inventors and self-employed professionals are the focus of a new visibility campaign designed to emphasize and honor their role in fueling the state's economy.
Each week, the Small Business Drives Colorado™ campaign selects one of Colorado's impressive small businesses to profile, featuring the chosen companies on the radio, in a business-to-business e-newsletter, on YouTube and on other social networking platforms.
"We're on a mission to showcase and honor our state's fine small businesses. To say thanks. To give owners and partners a moment or two in the glow of public recognition and appreciation - something they rarely receive," explains Dean Rotbart, founder of Small Business Drives Colorado™ and co-host of the popular weekly small business radio newsmagazine, Business Unconventional.
Every small business and self-employed professional in the state of Colorado is eligible to be considered for the Small Business Drives Colorado™ spotlight. There is no charge or application fee.
Business owners who feel they have a positive story to share about their company and how it reflects the state's entrepreneurial spirit are encouraged to register to receive the free weekly e-newsletter at http://www.SmallBusinessDrivesColorado.com. During the simple registration process, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to nominate themselves for statewide recognition.
The Small Business Drives Colorado™ initiative is supported by a growing list of quality sponsors that wish to underscore their support and appreciation for the special contributions that small business owners make both to Colorado's economy and quality of life.
The lead sponsor is Mountain States Toyota, Colorado's elite Toyota dealership, serving the Denver metro area and entire state from its state-of-the-art facility, which features more than 1,000 new and used vehicles, as well as 54 service bays.
Mountain States Toyota provides small business owners their own dedicated sales specialists who understand the unique needs of business owners and who can provide entrepreneurs special pricing and financing.
