Coolest Thing Made contest launched
The Colorado Chamber of Commerce is holding a Coolest Thing Made in Colorado contest to celebrate the state’s manufacturing industry.
“This is a unique opportunity for manufacturers from every corner of the state to put their best creations on display, and we encourage nominations of local products from Northern Colorado to compete for the title of Coolest Thing Made in Colorado,” Colorado Chamber President and CEO Loren Furman said in a news release.
The nomination period closes on Sept. 9. An independent panel of judges will review the nominations and select the top 10 finalists, who will be honored at the Colorado Chamber’s annual meeting luncheon on Oct. 20, where the Coolest Thing winner will be announced.

New online process available for business reports
The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office has launched a new online process for business entities to file periodic reports.
Reporting entities such as Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), corporations, nonprofit organizations and foreign entities are required to file a periodic report each year to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, with information such as updates to their principal office addresses and registered agent information, to help ensure current information about Colorado businesses is available to the public, according to a news release.
The new tool, which was designed with feedback from businesses in Colorado, works across different electronic devices.
