Denver Startup Week 2018, Save The Date

Mark your calendars for September 24th to the 28th, 2018.  Last week there was a kick-off for Startup week at Industry in RiNo last week. (below)Denver Startup Week Kickoff March 2018

The main event is in late September, still a summer month in Denver, but everyone is back to work.  What to know: there are multiple events each day, so many that you cannot possibly attend them all, unless you can be in two or three or four places at once, back-to-back for an entire week.

There are multiple tracks and types of events.  The day-time sessions are fantastic, but for some of us, we can only attend the after-hours events.  The after-work events can be seminars or happy hours, some in the cities coolest nightlife venues.  The social events are also where some of the best networking can happen.

When the schedule gets published, take a look at the various tracks.

  • Product
  • Maker
  • Growth
  • Founder
  • Designer
  • Developer
  • Headline Events

Yes, something for everyone.  My favorite event last year was a shark tank spoof of comedians and entrepreneurs pitching ridiculous business ideas.  Since stand-up & improv is a great way to develop ones communications skills, this was a great take-in.

See you there! (more to come later this year)

The Colorado Technology Sales Roundtable

My meetup started on a whim in 2015.  It’s since grown to far more than I ever anticipated.  The group was growing at a comfortable pace, with 10 to 20 people showing up most of the time.  Enter James Foy.   James basically took my networking / professional development group and set jumper cables to the meetup

Next month we are having a presentation on Selling to the CFO. presented by Stu Lucko, a serial entrepreneur and CFO.  Here is a de-brief of our March meetup, held in the Mezzanine of hip RiNo hotspot Lustre Pearl.

The group now has 400+ members, on a fast track to break the 500 mark soon.  The fascinating thing about running a meetup like this, as you give your time and energy to the technology community in Denver, the community gives back.  Establishing a mission to “Put the ‘professional’ back into ‘sales professional’.” can elevate a Sales Professional into a thought leader of the community.  IT’s become one of the most rewarding efforts of my professional career.  Will you join me?  Our next event is April 9th.  We provide Pizza from Vero’s Pizza.
