First Month Reflections

Now that we are in week 6 of the program, we are sitting back and reflecting on all the frameworks and methodologies that have been shared, fun memories that we all created, and progress that has been made. We wanted to share some of these highlights with you. One thing is for sure, we're off to an amazing start!

Since day one of the program, all of the teams have been part of 66 content sessions. The topics have varied, but the value produced within these first few weeks has been unprecedented. We have had mentors visit from as far as San Lois Obispo, New York City, New Hampshire, Denver and as close as our backyard (that long gondola ride)! We have held our first annual Gondola pitch, there have been hut trips, founder dinners, and evening bon-fire sessions. Thank you to our amazing mentor group, community members and program supporters for attending our events, welcoming our teams and mentors into your homes and supporting these individuals as they get settled in Telluride. Below are a few photos from our journey thus far. And, we are just getting started!
