The Annual Charity Ascent: A Hike with a Cause
Transworld Business Advisors – Rocky Mountain is committed to serving the Colorado community that we all live and work in – especially in the areas of entrepreneurship, small business development, and finance education, which is why we host an annual Charity Ascent!

For 2018, the Charity Ascent will support two new charity partners with a hike of Herman Gulch and a stop in Idaho Springs (Tommyknockers) for the after party. The Charity Ascent will be taking place on August 10th, 2018 at 8 AM and will be donating 100% of its proceeds to the Rocky Mountain Microfinance Institute and the Commons on Champa.

And now the spotlight is on our charity partners…
The Rocky Mountain Microfinance Institute (RMMFI) is a community creating economic and social mobility through entrepreneurship. They help curious people transform into serious entrepreneurs through personal, business, and financial investments.

The Commons on Champa (COC) is a public hub for entrepreneurship and is a first-of-its-kind public, private and nonprofit partnership that is a catalyst for economic development in Denver. It is built on three key elements – space, programming and community – to accelerate Downtown Denver’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.
