Boulder Startup Week is, without a doubt, my favorite week of the year. There are many dozens of amazing events, talks, panels, meetups, parties, and more! Everything is free, and everyone is welcome. It runs from Monday, May 16 to Friday, May 20th this year.
If you're already part of the startup community, you probably already have your schedule built. But for the 80,000 some people in Boulder who do other things, I really hope you'll try to come to at least one event during the week. There's everything from taco breakfasts to discussions about entrepreneurship in the marijuana industry. No matter what you enjoy, there's probably something happening that might strike a cord. Perhaps it will even plant a seed for your own entrepreneurial idea!
The startup scene is an important force in the future of Boulder. Between growing up here and launching my first startup in 1984 (before "startup" was a word), I've seen amazing changes take place. The more that entrepreneurs and "normal people" can learn about each other, the better our shared future in this town will be.
If you're not sure where to start, drop me a line! I'm happy to suggest some events that might appeal to you.
