DWC Celebrates 11 Year Anniversary

Since I started this business out of my house, I wanted to build a community center for education and professional development that I thought was missing in Northern Colorado.  With minimal outside funding and a small savings to invest, the company has continued with organic growth, limited debt, and amazing partnerships with local government and businesses.   We have found success with our focus on “skills, not degrees”.  Furthermore, coworking and community events have now become a sustainable part of the DWC model as well.
