The Roaring Fork Business Center was established in 2009 in response to a lack of access to practical business assistance for new and established businesses in the Roaring Fork Valley. The Center is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that serves businesses from Parachute to Aspen. The Center promotes existing business resources, creates new learning opportunities, and identifies ways for small businesses to access capital in order to accelerate the growth of emerging local and regional businesses to create jobs and increase tax revenues.
