Help aspiring entrepreneurs start their journey toward business ownership!
RMMFI's Idea program helps prospective entrepreneurs create a path to our Business Launch Boot Camp by clarifying potential business concepts and exploring a start-up strategy. Idea Navigators help the entrepreneurs create a high-level vision for their business and assess idea feasibility and personal stability.
As a Navigator, you will work with prospective entrepreneurs 1:1 to assess their business model, make recommendations and referrals, and help ensure they are prepared to start Business Launch Boot Camp.

About Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute (RMMFI)
1209 W. 10th Avenue, Denver, CO 80204, US
Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute creates the space for communities and people of all backgrounds to realize their unique potential through the power of entrepreneurship. We believe that all people deserve the investment to achieve their dreams, and we provide that investment through classroom, coaching, capital, and community.
The RMMFI "Whole Entrepreneur" model operates on the fundamental belief that everyone has a unique mix of skills, experiences, and personalities defining their greatness. When the struggles and barriers of the world muddy our vision, it’s hard to see what we’ve got inside ourselves. RMMFI creates the space to unleash the potential of people and communities through entrepreneurship. Working together as a community, our goal is to build the RMMFI Entrepreneur into a business owner who can successfully shift and adapt to changing environments in their business and their life. Personal foundations are essential for success, and RMMFI works with entrepreneurs to focus on personal stability, entrepreneurial spark, and business feasibility.
