Startup Variety Show

Tags: Entrepreneurship

Join us for the second session of the Startup Variety Show on June 15th, and don’t forget to return for the third session on July 13th. We will host different featured speakers and startups at each iteration!

The past two years disrupted our community’s rhythms of in-person interactions. The Startup Variety Show convenes multiple dimensions of the startup community by showcasing companies, highlighting ideas, and reinitiating in-person interactions across campus and within the emerging company community.

The Variety Show will feature:

  • Startups
  • An intriguing, and potentially disruptive, research idea from CU
  • An ongoing project at a large incumbent company in the Front Range
  • An investor’s corner, featuring a fund and/or an active investor
  • Potpourri (tech and the arts, legal or policy issues, or other community items of interest)
  • Audience Q&A

Overall, the Startup Variety Show will stitch together different components of the Boulder/Front Range startup community and CU startup scene. The event will highlight stimulating new ideas and mobilize community resources to support teams pursuing new ideas, while increasing accessibility for newcomers to the startup and technology community. 

Special Guest

In addition to our featured speakers, Brad Feld will be discussing the second edition of his book, Startup Boards: A Field Guide to Building and Leading an Effective Board of Directors.
