The Future of Atlantic City

Nov 13, 2020, 12:00 – 1:00 AM

Can The Boulder Thesis be applied to Atlantic City? We discuss this as well as if social impact entrepreneurship can help fuel the growth of our local startup ecosystem.

Virtual event

About this event

The Boulder Thesis (derived by Brad Feld when he transformed Boulder, CO into a vibrant startup community) has four key principal components: (1) Entrepreneurs must lead the startup community, (2) The leaders must have a long-term commitment, (3) The startup community must be inclusive of anyone who wants to participate in it, and (4) The startup community must have continual activities that engage the entire entrepreneurial stack.

Our panel will discuss these components and expand on how and why they feel Atlantic City could be a vibrant startup community in the future. They will also discuss ideas for social entrepreneurship that are currently in the works or where gaps currently lie that could be filled by social impact ventures.
