Welcome to the RMMFI Community -
If you’re an RMMFI Volunteer, Donor, Partner, or just plain PASSIONATE about Entrepreneurship and Business Ownership – then please consider yourself a part of the RMMFI COMMUNITY! We connect Individuals and Businesses from the community with RMMFI and the aspiring Entrepreneurs we serve for the purpose of elevating small business across our community. We’ve seen the MAGIC that happens when the entrepreneurial spirit is ignited and we invite you to get involved!
Whole Foods Market and RMMFI are teaming up!
Shop at their Tamarac and Capitol Hill store locations on Wednesday, March 25th and 5% of their combined store sales will be donated to the Rocky Mountain Micro Finance Institute! Thank you Whole Foods Market!
Congratulations to Boot Camp Class #11!
Back in mid-September, a group of aspiring entrepreneurs enrolled into their first Boot Camp class at the Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute, and they made the decision to transform their lives. Collectively they were known as Boot Camp #11; however, they were more than just a new group of clients from our Community—they all strived to become successful business owners and as of December 11th, they are well on their way to achieving their business dreams.
Congratulations to the members of Boot Camp Class #11 & THANK YOU to all of the Volunteers and Supporters who made it possible!
With our Ticket to Success campaign, RMMFI set a goal to raise $17,500 in donations on Colorado Gives Day. Our stretch goal was to raise $20,000. Imagine our sheer delight when the final tally reached $25,179.38!
Because of your gifts, RMMFI will begin 2015 in a position of strength. We’re ready to create new entrepreneurs who build businesses right here in Denver. So many dreamers will have the opportunity to become successful entrepreneurs; so many communities will be strengthened by small business. Thank you for your generosity, your belief, and your action!
With your help, RMMFI was also able to unlock an additional $10,000 in matching funds from our incredible partners, Sooper Credit Union and the Greenlee Family Foundation. That brings our grand total to over $35,000!
Next year is going to be an exciting year for RMMFI and we look forward to sharing the journey with you, as we continue to create new stories of business success and personal victories.
