One of my favorite events of the year is NewCo Boulder. It's a one-day un-conference in which around 50 companies open their doors and share their stories. Unlike Startup Week (which I also love), NewCo isn't just focused on Tech companies. Every kind of Boulder business is represented from tech to food to sustainable living.
There are tickets and VIP tickets, but if you really want the best possible experience, come help us out by volunteering! Volunteers receive half day access for free, in exchange for volunteering for the other half. But even more importantly, you get to make a direct connection with the hosts in companies that most appeal to you. If you're looking for a career change, a friendly contact inside a company, or the chance to ask your dream question of your local hero, volunteering at their session is the kind of opportunity that comes along only once in a while. This year, it comes on November 17th.
We talk a lot in Boulder about #GiveFirst. Although the foundation of our philosophy is that you give without asking anything in return, there's no rule that says you can't give first and fortuitously receive something great in return.
We could really use your help, and I promise you'll have a great time.
