May kicks off with both the national and Colorado versions of Small Business Week, a celebration of craftspeople, entrepreneurs and innovators. From April 30 to May 7, the Colorado Enterprise Fund (CEF) is supporting the efforts of entrepreneurs with multiple events.

The nonprofit, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary of supporting small businesses in the state, is hosting a Startup Financing for the First-Time Entrepreneur workshop at the Commons on Champa on May 3 starting at 1:30 p.m. The workshop will highlight how three local businesses, Knotty Tie Co., Tom and Chee and Let Em Have It Hair Salon, have benefited from CEF loans. Registration is encouraged as there are only 200 seats available.

In addition, CEF is partnering with the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) on additional National Small Business Week events. Among them are the Denver Business Resource Fair on May 2 and the Lenders Panel Discussion on May 5.

The CEF events are just a smattering of what's going on in and around Denver for Small Business Week. For the full calendar, visit www.coloradosmallbizweek.com.
