About Us

Silicon Flatirons pushes the boundaries on what one center can do. You'll notice we do quite a bit in pursuit of our mission. Our initiatives drive what we do, with our core events and publications guiding current and future leaders on what’s next.


What We Do

Founded in 1999 by Phil Weiser, Colorado’s current Attorney General, the center is a recognized leader in interdisciplinary events and programs. We serve students, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and professionals, and support the joint missions of Colorado Law on teaching, scholarship, and public service.

Although technology and innovation have evolved radically over two decades, our purpose remains the same: to convene multi-stakeholder discussions, support innovation, and develop the next generation of technology lawyers, policy experts, and entrepreneurs. Explore the center’s history.
