At Center for Community Wealth Building (CCWB), we are creating an inclusive economy that works for all. We’re a startup, worker self-directed nonprofit that promotes inclusive economic development opportunities that center the talents and capacities of impacted and vulnerable Metro Denver residents, entrepreneurs and workers, while leveraging the economic power of anchor institutions to create an economy that works for everyone.

As the Small Business Capacity Building Manager, you will be a critical member of a visionary team working to strengthen BIPOC-owned small businesses and leverage the purchasing power of large institutions to help close the racial wealth gap.
