Grant assists new and expanding startup businesses in Longmont
The Longmont Economic Development Partnership (EDP) awarded The Longmont Climbing Collective a $3,000 grant as part of the Advance Longmont Startup Grant program to assist local startups that have been in business less than two years.
Longmont Climbing Collective, located at 33 South Pratt Parkway in Longmont, is a climber’s paradise engineered to perfection that has been described as a work of art within Colorado’s climbing community. Boulder County has a lot to offer that climbing community, and Longmont Climbing Collective adds to that by bringing to Longmont a company and a facility with a commitment to strengthening and supporting the outdoor recreation industry in Colorado.
According to Longmont Climbing Collective’s website (www.longmontclimbingcollective.com), the company has big dreams and aims to be the central hub for the climbing community in Longmont.
Longmont Climbing Collective co-owner Mac Maier stated “We can’t think of a better place to do this than Longmont! We’re located only 12 miles from Colorado’s Front Range, home to some of the finest climbing in the world. Our climbing community here in Longmont has yearned for a place to meet, grow and train together. Now we have a place to call our own.”
The Advance Longmont Startup Grant is designed to support Longmont’s startup businesses in their launch efforts. Informed by the goals of both the Advance Longmont economic development strategy and Envision Longmont master plan, the Advance Longmont Startup Grant program provides funding to local startups that have been in business less than two years to assist with the cost of permitting and licensing, regulatory compliance, equipment purchases and other startup associated costs. This program reimburses eligible expenses, up to the preapproved grant amount, for projects that submit an application and meet all of the criteria of the grant program. Funded by the City of Longmont, the Advance Longmont Startup Grant awards up to $3,000 to startups that have launched or will launch in Longmont. More information about the
