One partnership ends as another begins for Yampa Valley Entrepreneurship Center


For 23 years the Yampa Valley Entrepreneurship Center has played a huge role in Steamboat Springs, promoting and facilitating effective planning for new business startups, with a helping hand from Colorado Mountain Collage.

In November, however, the center will join forces with the Routt County Economic Development Partnership, ending a partnership with the college that dates back to 1999.

Randy Rudasics, manager of the entrepreneurship center, said the program — which had helped launch several local startups — is important for the community and will continue to develop under the new partnership.
