Creating a successful business that stands the test of time is not easy. That’s why the man behind one of Colorado’s best businesses, Jake Jabs of American Furniture Warehouse, came up with a way to help entrepreneurs like himself blaze a trail of their own. Every year Jake Jabs holds a competition called “The Climb.”  It has awarded more than a million dollars to startups since 2001. We were joined by three of this year’s winners Elliott Bath, from BarVenture, as well as Lars and David Baugh, from Lithic Nutrition, in addition to Madhaven Parthasarathy, Director of Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship.
