The power to choose your path

After completing three tours in Iraq, Duane Topping retired from the Army in 2012.

With the support of the Bank of America Veteran Entrepreneur Lending Program and community development financial institution (CDFI) partner Colorado Enterprise Fund, Duane was able to turn his therapeutic outlet into a successful small business.
