I’ve been watching CU’s entrepreneurship ecosystem really evolve over the last 5 or 7 years. It’s a grassroots efforts, led in part by the students, and in part by passionate faculty within CU. For instance, Brad Berenthal’s efforts over at Silicon Flatirons have become a staple in the entrepreneurship community. The Spark Boulder co-working space is thriving with young student entrepreneurs. And the New Venture Challenge is producing some great companies, including many who made it to the final rounds of Techstars. In fact, Varsity, one of the winners, has recently been accepted to Techstars (expect a blog post on that one!)
If you’re going to be in Boulder at the end of July, and want to catch a glimpse of the fun stuff happening at CU, you’re in luck. Catalyze CU is throwing their first-ever Demo Day on July 31st from 6-8pm. Make sure to check out the companies, and get your tickets before they’re gone! And keep your eye on CU – the entrepreneurial groundswell is picking up some serious steam.
