BUSINESS & TECHNOLOGY CENTER

Built in 1920, the BTC was the home of the Kress Department Store, it was one of many popular retail centers.

In 1984, PEDCO moved in and started the business incubator program to grow and diversify the economic base of Pueblo by utilizing the tools of business incubation, entrepreneurial development and education.

Today, the BTC continues as a business incubator and incorporates temporary office space for corporations and out of town businesses.

The Business & Technology Center is located in downtown Pueblo, CO (301 N Main Street)
