This weekend, we’re hosting Startup Weekend Telluride, and we couldn't be more excited.
Startup Weekend is a 3-day meals-included exercise of forming a business + growth plan.
It doesn't matter your background, if you're a student, if you're a FT500 exec, or if you have an idea or not. The Startup Weekend model has proven itself literally thousands of times around the world as one of the most powerful tools for building entrepreneurial ecosystems.
Each person contributes their unique background to each team, working together to finalize their idea and plan.
We've got 5 folks from the Techstars team driving out from Boulder, two co-founders of Startup Weekend (Clint and Marc), 10 students from Ft. Lewis, 5 students from Durango plus a bunch of local folks like Basit, Tristan, Jim, Alley, Norbert, Tom, Thea, Aaron Silverman, Len, Jack, Mark Rikkers, Ryan, Jack, Dennis, etc.
Entrepreneurship, like any sport, requires practice and training...
Grab someone you'd enjoy working on a weekend project with and come roll up your sleeves and let's build something together!
