It’s a three year and $4 million initiative to help small businesses grow.

The goal is to build relationships between entrepreneurs and companies with high growth potential.

“Over time as the network is formed and strengthened, these relationships and the innovated companies will have a substantial impact on job creation and Colorado’s economy,” said Blackstone’s Global Head of Real Estate Jon Gray.
