Joey Jenkins oversees the operational management, strategic direction, and financial planning of the Colorado Small Business Development Center Network, a $3.5 million federal- and state-funded program with 15 full-time Centers across the State of Colorado.
Throughout his tenure and with the help of Jenkins’ guidance and support, the Colorado SBDC Network has successfully implemented new small business support initiatives and programs including Connect 2 Dot (a partnership with CDOT designed to assist small companies in navigating construction bids and contracts), SBDC ADVANCED (economic gardening initiative targeting second stage, growth companies), Small Manufacturer’s AdvantEdge (specialized consulting and training for Colorado’s small manufacturing companies), and SBDC TechSource (targeted assistance for Colorado’s technology and innovation-driven companies including access to capital and technology transfer).
When not spending time with all of the amazing individuals that make up the Colorado SBDC Network, Joey also enjoys planning mountaineering adventures, bike-packing expeditions, and re-building 19th century homes.

In his spare time, he is an avid cyclist and recreational triathlete. He is middle to back of the pack but is a 3-time Ironman finisher.
The most important indication of success to me is earning new business from an existing client. It’s the same standard I aspired to as a General Counsel, and includes delivering world class legal services on time and on budget. My corporate and transactional practices include representing companies and investors in a variety of industries in financings, mergers and acquisitions and the complete range of technology-based transactions. I advise executives and boards on governance matters and I help clients establish and implement cost-effective corporate compliance programs. As General Counsel of Flextronics, I learned about continuous improvement as a core operating concept. The principle is now second-nature to me, and I am constantly looking for opportunities to increase efficiency, make adjustments based on feedback, and measure results – although my family and friends are still waiting to see me apply this discipline to my cooking.
