Attendees represent a broad spectrum of minority and women business owners, professionals, community organization leaders and youth. The Success Summit, the only event of its kind in this region, brings together various financial, personal and business resources to promote economic self-sufficiency for Colorado’s economically disadvantaged people. “It’s time to have Courageous Conversations about factors that impact our economic success.” says MRBES Founder and Executive Director Carla D.
