  • IT and cybersecurity services to local administrations and organizations.
  • We will expand our services beyond state lines to approach federal opportunities, aligning with our emphasis on growth and scalability.

Providing Aid to Veterans

Within the Colorado community, our commitment to aiding the veteran population is evidenced by various initiatives:

  • Partnering with veteran-founded companies as clients.
  • Actively seeking to employ veterans, recognizing their unwavering work ethic and shared experiences.
  • Assisting veterans transition from military to civilian employment through mentorship and guidance.

Upcoming Collaborative Projects

In the near future, our collaborative outlook encompasses:

  • Hosting charitable events, such as a golf tournament, to benefit veteran causes and expand our support network.
  • Enhancing infrastructure for organizations like Mount Carmel, including modernizing communication systems in the studio and fortifying cybersecurity defenses.

  • Tailored Consultations: Deep dives into specific business challenges and strategic advice.
  • Navigational Assistance: Guidance through the administrative side of business, including tax obligations and operational scaling.

Learning and Connection Opportunities

Veteran-Led Business Growth

Veteran Dedication and Commitment

Veterans transition out of military service with a relentless work ethic and a willingness to endure challenges to achieve their goals. As someone who has navigated the complexities of business, I can affirm that these qualities are vital. We understand the essence of striving towards excellence, as we’ve carried that same dedication into our enterprise, providing IT and cybersecurity solutions to a diverse clientele.

  • Adaptability: Our tenure in the military has trained us to adapt and overcome various obstacles, a trait we channel into growing our business ventures.
  • Perseverance: We possess a tenacious spirit that drives our business significantly when expanding our services and reaching new markets.

Transition Hurdles for Veteran Entrepreneurs

Transitioning to a civilian business landscape presents unique challenges. In the military, many logistical aspects were managed by others, from payroll to building leases. Starting a business uncovers many questions we never had to consider while serving.

  • Learning Curve: Running a business involves understanding the intricacies of market strategies, scaling, and taxation—areas where guidance is crucial, which is why connections with organizations like VBIC are invaluable.
  • Resource Navigation: Resources like VBIC provide insights that help veteran entrepreneurs understand how to register a company or acquire funding.

Strengthening Entrepreneurial Success

The Significance of Entrepreneurial Guidance

The business landscape constantly evolves, especially with technological advancements such as artificial intelligence. We at CCS IT Pros, formerly known as Colorado Computer Support, have embraced this change to provide comprehensive IT services, including cybersecurity and staff augmentation. Our growth trajectory is not just within Colorado; we aim to broaden our reach to include federal and state entities nationwide.

To penetrate further into the government sector, we have leveraged our connections with veteran-centric organizations that offer business coaching. For example, collaborating with the Veteran’s Business Outreach Center has allowed us to access valuable advice and support. Even with our 23-year tenure in the industry, there is always room to learn—particularly when scaling our operations to more extensive opportunities. Their assistance has guided us through the nuances of market expansion and business scaling.

Accessing Complimentary Business Resources

Veteran entrepreneurs possess a unique blend of determination and adaptability that can thrive with the proper support. Understanding this, we have engaged with organizations like Vach and VIBOC that offer no-cost counseling and events to fortify this entrepreneurial spirit. They help demystify the business startup process for veterans transitioning from military to civilian life.

Key Benefits to Veterans and Their Enterprises:

  • Transition Assistance: Supporting veterans in their transition from military service by providing insights into the civilian business world.

Many of our team members are veterans, which fosters a shared cultural understanding and facilitates mentorship for those fresh out of service. This shared perspective enhances our workplace cohesion and extends to the support we offer our clients.

As we continue to grow, we focus on cultivating more opportunities for veterans and securing government contracts that align with our expertise. The upcoming VETS24 event in Orlando is an ideal platform for networking and collaboration. Engaging with and giving back to the community through events and partnerships, such as our work with Mount Carmel, remains a priority.
