North Metro Denver SBDC won State of Colorado
and Region VIII awards


The North Metro Denver SBDC, hosted by Front Range Community College in Westminster since 1989, received its award based on the center’s efforts to effectively assist small business owners, and its innovative approach to serving small manufacturers throughout Colorado. Since becoming senior director in 2011, Glenn Plagens has grown consulting over 500% during his tenure. The center has satellite offices in Brighton, Broomfield and Commerce City. Last year, the center provided over 2,600 hours of consulting for over 560 clients, $9,184,276.00 of capital formation, 25 business starts and 126 jobs created. Currently the center has over 30 consultants and trainers working with clients to provide the best possible experience. In an effort to better serve the state’s small manufacturing clients, Plagens created a “Beta Manufacturing” program, working intensively with four small businesses of a 2.5 year period, which led to the creation of 23 jobs, $5,200,000 in capital formation and $4,002,000 increased sales.
