This Week in Entrepreneurship

12 Nov

I realize that I often say that it’s a big week in entrepreneurship, but this time it really truly is a big week in entrepreneurship. And you barely need to move to get to it – its coming to you! Two of the biggest events of the semester are right here on campus, this week.

On Campus …

The New Venture Challenge (NVC) Pitch Night!

This is kind of a big deal. With somewhat limited slots, anyone who wants to pitch a business idea – no matter what stage its in – can do so in pursuit of co-founders, mentors, funding, help or all of the above. It’s a show that you don’t want to miss! A cocktail hour for mingling and networking will follow.

When: Tuesday, November, 13 | 5:30 PM

Where: Wittemyer Courtroom | Wolf Law Building | CU Boulder Campus

RSVP to pitch or attend:

Note: only one member of each team needs to register to pitch.

The GEA Idea Workshop!

The very first ever idea workshop. Come hone your ability to sell an idea in this speed dating for entrepreneurs. Try it out on other classmates, meet angel investors and VCs and get help in friendly, fun-filled environment.

When: Wednesday, November 14 | 6:30 PM

Where: Discovery Learning Center | Collaboratory (Rooms 1B70, 1B60, and 1B50) (map)


Silicon Flatirons Presents, “Crash Course: Effective Startup and Emerging Company Boards”

Joseph Zell of Grotech Ventures will be presenting on the topic above.

When: Thursday, November 15 | 6:15 PM

Where: Wolf Law, Room 306 | CU Boulder Campus


In the Community TONIGHT …


Come be in a video for a startup going on Kickstarter! Ryan Guest of Boulder will be filming a short video for his seed-funding bid on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. Ryan’s startup is a mobile app to find the best fishing spots in the summer. The scene will be in a bar, so all you have to do is come have a drink and maybe pour a beer on Ryan. If you were going out this evening anyway, do it at Outback!

When: Monday, November 12 | 7 PM

Where: Outback Saloon | 3141 28th Street, Boulder, CO.
