Location & Directions
The Business Incubator Center


In order to reserve a spot in any class/workshop you must register and pay before the class begins. It's highly recommended to register and pay for a class/workshop ahead of time to reserve your seat and guarantee that class materials are available.

Cancellation Policy: If a class/workshop is canceled by the Business Incubator Center, those who’ve registered and paid will receive a full refund, or the opportunity to credit their registration & fee to another class. The Business Incubator Center reserves the right to modify, withdraw or make substitutions for any announced classes and to change instructors.

Class Withdrawal: Participant requested withdrawals must be made a minimum of 3 business days prior to the start of class/workshop. To request a withdrawal from a class/workshop please call 970-243-5242.


  • Refunds are available, minus a $10 administrative fee only if notice of withdrawal is given at least 3 business days prior to the start of the class.
  • Withdrawals/refunds are not available once a class/workshop begins.
  • Credit card transactions will be credited to the original card used.
  • Refund checks will be mailed for cash or check transactions. This process takes 3 to 4 weeks.

Refund Policy: The Business Incubator Center does not offer full refunds once a person has registered and paid for a class/workshop. If for some reason the participant cannot take the class on the scheduled day and has not given notice to the Business Incubator Center 3 business days prior to the class, the participant will not receive any refund but the participant will be credited for a future class/workshop of the same cost.

For example a participant registers and pays $50 for the How to Start a Business Class, if the participant calls and cancels 3 days before the class, they are refunded $40. If the participant calls the day before the class, the participant will not receive any refund but will be credited for a How to Start a Business Class or any other workshop that is of a $50 value.
