Thank you to Steve Halstedt, Brad Feld, Jason Mendelson, Silicon Valley Bank, and Rocky Mountain Venture Capital Association for supporting the initiative.

Startup Colorado is an initiative to make a meaningful impact on entrepreneurship and new company creation in the Front Range. We want to expand the breadth and depth of entrepreneurial networks from Fort Collins to Boulder to Denver to Colorado Springs and lower barriers for people who want to build high-growth businesses. Startup Colorado is chaired by Brad Feld, Jan Horsfall, and Phil Weiser. Please join the Silicon Flatirons Center and TiE Rockies for the Startup Colorado public launch event on November 9th.
