The public encouraged to celebrate the spirit of our entrepreneurial community through multiple events being conducted throughout the city.
Startup Week in Fort Collins, Colorado and similar events across the nation are a platform to bring together like-minded individuals to foster and to celebrate entrepreneurship. In years past, Startup week Fort Collins has happened just after Memorial Day, and this year in an effort to increase participation from across the state, organizers have moved the event to earlier in the year.
The Fort Collins Startup Week organizers see this as a grassroots opportunity to bring together great entrepreneurial business leaders for a fun week of collaboration, creation and community.
“I am thrilled that our startup community here in Fort Collins is as robust and energized as it is to host a startup week for a third year in a row.” said Charisse Bowen, Campus Director Galvanize FoCo. “I am looking forward to seeing how this change in date and format increases participation and involvement.”
Whether you are one person with a great idea or an already scaling startup, the events already lined up have been created by entrepreneurs and experts in the community who want to share what they’ve learned with you. Participants can expect a diverse schedule of events driven by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, including workshops, guest speakers, networking happy hours and much more. If you do not see a session you need, feel free to create it.
These events will take place all over Fort Collins, including the Innosphere who has been an organizing partner this year. Startup Week basecamp will be held at Galvanize-Fort Collins located at 242 Linden St. in Old Town, this is where participants can check-in and get all of their Startup Week questions answered during the week of events. Basecamp will be open daily from 8:30am-5:30pm.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend all of the week’s activities which are free of charge. Organizers are also seeking additional content and are soliciting for people to submit their event concepts through a form on their website. Events to be held this year must be submitted by January 21st, 2016 for consideration. Fort Collins Startup Week is also currently seeking volunteers and sponsors, for more information please reach out to [email protected].
