We made it.  One full year in the books leading the EDC.  While not a traditional first year, we made the most of it and look forward to picking back up where we left off in person – meaningful connections.  
Investor Highlight: Pilatus Business Aircraft
Join us in congratulating Pilatus on their recent groundbreaking for an expansion at the RMMA campus.  In this exciting new project, Pilatus will be adding new paint bays that increase their capacities and service levels in Jefferson County.

Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd was founded in 1996. About 70 percent of all PC-12s which come off the production line in Stans are finished to customer specifications (interior and exterior livery) in Colorado. The American subsidiary of The Pilatus Group is also responsible for PC-12 and PC-24 marketing, sales and servicing activities in North and South America.

    TeamUp Jeffco Looking for Partners
    TeamUp Jeffco is partnering with Moore Middle School to create a summer program to address academic and social/emotional challenges created by the disruption to the school year. Our goal is to create a FUN, passion-project based “Camp” to re-engage our kids in learning.  We plan to “hide the vegetables” of academics into these activities.  We know that teachers are exhausted and that there are many community members who would like to step up into a structure that works. We think we have a win-win-win concept. Students-Teachers-Community!

      Our Idea is to invite and partner with local individuals, businesses, and organizations who have time, talent, and passions that they would be willing to share with these students.  We will pair you with teachers who will overlay the reading, writing, and math to the student experience.
