How Denver became a Global Entrepreneurship Hub

Tuesday September 13th | 4-5:30 | Enterprise, 3000 Lawrence St. Denver, CO
Denver becoming a global hub for entrepreneurship is no accident. This happened because of an education model that teaches both founders and investors about what they should expect from each other. This happened because of access to strong deal flow, qualified investor deals (nearly 50 percent of the cost of deals in Silicon Valley). This happened because of the fact that four of Colorado’s largest cities are consistently in the top 10 U.S. cities with most startups per capita (Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs).
