DENVER -- The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) today announced its staff will go on a road tour throughout Colorado to educate people about the Advanced Industries (AI) Accelerator Program and how they can apply for grants.
"In just the past three years, Colorado's AI program has granted over $35 million to 227 organizations, helping them to scale and find great success," said Fiona Arnold, OEDIT executive director.
"We want to ensure that people in every part of the state are aware of the program and know how to successfully apply for a grant."
The AI grant team will answer questions at two-hour meetings, as well as discuss the program in detail and give helpful grant training advice.
Tour stops are:
