Filed under: Daily News,Small Business | Tags:, , ,

The Colorado Small Business Development Centers Network has launched a website designed to provide free consulting, training and online resources for small businesses in the transportation industry.

The website, called Connect2Dot (www.connect2dot.org) is funded by the Colorado Department of Transportation and managed by the SBDC.

The site offers quick and easy access to information on how to do business with CDOT and is designed to provide small and disadvantaged contractors with the right tools to grow and succeed.

“The SBDC helps small and medium-size businesses with all aspects of their business, and for us to branch out to assist with providing more resources in this specialized area of transportation makes perfect sense,” said Kelly Manning, state director of the Colorado SBDC Network. “We are thrilled to partner with CDOT and help our businesses advance in this area of expertise.”

The website is organized to help contractors that are just getting started and those that are looking to build their business. Resources have been consolidated into one centralized location, making it easier to find CDOT project opportunities, get certified as a small business, connect with prime contractors and register for relevant training and events.

Other features of the website include an industry-wide event calendar, an interactive map of statewide SBDC locations, an opt-in bid matching system, and an email newsletter.
