This presentation will be a fireside chat with Jason Blevins from the Colorado Sun interviewing Shawn Bertini from Four Points Funding (4PF). The two will unpack the Opportunity Zones, their impact on the West Slope so far and the important role they can play going forward.
The two will dig into OZ rules lightly before jumping into a discussion of multiple projects across the western slope that have garnered national recognition. They will identify key elements that attracted investment in each case and share general emerging trends on structuring OZ deals.
The application of Opportunity Zone incentives is accelerating in rural america. Despite some conflicting press, this bipartisan tax incentive will play an important role in rural america going forward. Please join in the fireside chat and open Q&A about the role this program will play in our area.

All sessions at West Slope Startup Week 2020 will be recorded. By joining the session, you agree to be part of the recording.

Partner, Four Points Funding
I've been focused on driving investment into rural Colorado since co-founding Four Points Funding in 2017. It's given me a front-row seat to some incredible innovation and entrepreneurial grit, and I am sincerely thankful. Talk to me about anything. Literally.
