  2. Ellen, the OEDIT says Sturman received a different grant. Here’s their response: “Sturman Industries recently received export-promotion funds through OEDIT’s Colorado Export of Innovative and Sustainable Technologies (CO-EXist) Program but has not received funds through our Colorado Export Development Grant (CEDG) Program.”
