Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network Welcomes Bonsai Design
This is the first Grand Junction based organization to join the network
The Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network (BEN) announced April 4, 2018 that Grand Junction-based Bonsai Design will join the network as its newest member. The company installs custom aerial adventure courses nationally and internationally.
"Thaddeus and I are incredibly grateful to be a part of the Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network," says Sarah Shrader, Bonsai Design owner and co-founder. "We feel really lucky to have a group of highly skilled, experienced and successful professionals to advise us on our growth."
Bonsai Design actively participates in economic development on the western slope and is currently working with the City of Grand Junction and Grand Junction Economic Partnership (GJEP) on the Riverfront at Las Colonias Park development.
BEN aims to identify promising Colorado companies across industries and geographies, and provides guidance and connections to help the companies grow. With the help of its advisor network, BEN leverages expertise across a range of disciplines, connecting and supporting the community and network members by building relationships, providing resources and supporting scale-up growth through a range of offerings.
BEN is funded by a $3 million gift from the Blackstone Charitable Foundation to the state of Colorado and is administered by the University of Colorado's Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship.
