Good Business Colorado is a grassroots organization of values-driven business owners challenging the lines of partisanship and advocating for a prosperous economy, equitable communities, and a sustainable environment. Our members believe that business success cannot be measured by profit alone and that business plays a key role in ensuring our planet, communities, and bottom lines are all thriving. Good Business Colorado Advances Our Shared Values By:
● Advocating for local, state and federal policies that reflect our values
● Providing an alternative perspective to traditional business organizations and voices
● Sparking more involvement from like-minded, values-driven businesses
● Helping formulate and advocate for policies that build a prosperous, equitable, and sustainable Colorado
● Preparing and supporting members for testifying at state and local level public hearings.
Good Business Colorado was born out of the Amendment 70 campaign to increase the state minimum wage to $12 by 2020. Over 300 businesses joined the campaign in support for the measure and after the 2016 election, many of these business owners felt true ownership over the victory and wanted to continue to work together to see how they could continue to use their voices to influence policy debates. Several of these businesses came together to form Good Business Colorado, and the organization formally incorporated in October of 2017.
