Silicon Flatirons, ATLAS, and Kurtz Fargo LLP present Dave Query as our featured entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs Unplugged is a meeting place where faculty, students, and community members with technical backgrounds learn about and get involved in entrepreneurship. In particular, the program offers students, faculty and the Front Range startup community an opportunity to learn how a successful startup is created as well as an opportunity to network. Each Entrepreneurs Unplugged meeting features food, drink and – most importantly – an experienced entrepreneur to discuss his/her start-up experiences.
