Colorado Capital Conference 2021 – The Future of Startups

August 24-26th — In-Person Kick-off Event (August 24) and RVC Virtual Conference via Zoom (August 25-26)

With all of the pandemic disruption and innovation that we’ve seen in the past year, the future of so much is uncertain and the future of startups is extraordinarily uncertain. Factors such as inflation, potential bubbles bursting, living in Zoom-land, continued unemployment, distributed work forces and more, are all redefining how startups are formed, funded and fostered into rapidly scaling enterprises.

The good news is that startups are doing more, moving faster and getting funded at rates above those we’ve seen even the past few hot VC years. At this year’s Colorado Capital Conference, we will be holding our first in-person event in over 18 months where we will be looking at what separates the winners and losers in tomorrow’s fast paced hyper-competitive landscape.

We’ll kick off with an in-person reception, featuring appetizers, drinks, and networking with conference attendees, on Tuesday, August 24. The conference will be held on Wednesday + Thursday, with engaging keynotes, pitches from innovative startups seeking funding, panel discussions on the future of startups, and more – be sure not to miss it!
