Would you like to mentor teams Competing in GoCode CO?

If you didn’t know, i’m helping organize events for the GoCode CO campaign. It’s a pretty cool thing that the Secretary of State is organizing. It starts with hackathons taking place all over CO. Actually there’s a kick off event, but the fun starts with the hackathons.

I’m running the Fort Collins event (feel free to sign up!!) but there’s going to be events in Boulder, Durango, Grand Junction, and Colorado Springs as well.

THANK YOU

We did! I really do mean ‘we’. I couldn’t have gotten the votes with out everyone’s support. It means a lot to me! To Nicole and to the company! The process isn’t super clear, but we’re now officially in the running. Step one, get 250 votes. By The Way, you can still vote, i don’t honestly know what it means to get more than 250, but safe to assume it reflects well on us, so by all means if you haven’t voted, or haven’t shared, I wouldn’t be mad if you did. Step 2 starts mid November. The “panel Deliberation” phase. Not sure they contact those in the running or just review the applications and decide. That step lasts until January, then they announce the 12 winners.   Thank you…

Anyhow, the basic idea is a small group of people, all anonymous beyond just a first name. Those selected to present their idea have 5 minutes to present it. There’s some Q&A, then some “Sit and listen to what we say without responding” and at the end of the presentations, (usually only 2-3 I think) there’s the “reveal” where everyone introduces themselves; who they are, what they do, etc. It’s really awesome. I presented something I’m working on and…

Denver Startup Week 2013

It’s Back! If you missed last years Startup week, make sure you’re paying attention this year! It’s gonna be bigger and better (My Prediction). I’m really excited about it, and hope to be even more involved than I was last year. I really want Denver to be a big player in the startup space. At least personally I want to help get boot strapped startups more love. I know VC makes the world go ’round, but think it’s important, especially in a city like Denver, that we make sure to highlight and give love to the boot strappers out there (of which I’m one). You can sign up to be on the mailing list right now. Organization is just starting so if you’re interested in helping out or being involved…
