I neglect my personal blog way too much. There I said it judge away.. That said I’m still not signing up for Tumblr.
Ok anyway on to why I sat down to write this post. Denwhere?
360|Conferences brings me a lot of joy, it let’s me work on lots of things, and give a lot of my time to Denver. Out of that has come Denwhere? (Yes there’s a ? at the end, it’s a joke on a joke, and really does make for a cool name). I started Denwhere? as nothing more than a website with a google calendar as a way to provide a single place for events in and around Denver to be listed on a master calendar. It went pretty well, then I stopped updating it.
Recently though, it’s begun an evolution from one trick pony website (admittedly, with a bum leg), to an organization. An organization that is a non-profit. An organization that has taken over running Ignite Denver. An organization with lofty goals, and a means to actually meet them. An organization I’m prouder than shit to be a part of.
Denwhere? has one main goal; foster, encourage and support events in Denver that hit on any combination of these three tenets. Community, Entrepreneurship, and Education.
To that end, we’ve got a lot of things in the works, obviously growing and making Ignite Denver even more awesome, is one. A Festival of Books and Epic Farmers Market are two more. Both likely in the summer/fall of 2014.
This year we’re organizing Denver NodeBotsDay, and the Law Hackathon. Both coming up fast! Both FREE
We’re also helping make the Denver Bee even more epic (I know ‘epic’ is played out, but it really does sound good), which is a tall order, I admit, but still.
Denwhere? is still very much in it’s infancy, but we’ve got big plans. We’ve also got room for more voices at the table. Whether you want to volunteer at an event, help organize one, have an idea for an event you’d like to run past us, or just want to say hi. Drop us a line.
Denwhere? isn’t exclusive, elitist, or closed to new people or ideas.
