What would you like to bring to the table?

We'll be hosted by The Wolf Den in Colorado Springs on November 2, 2023, from 5:30-7:30 pm. The Wolf Den is more than just a co-working space; it's an ecosystem. It's a dynamic and inspiring environment where founders, investors, mentors, and industry experts converge to turn ideas into reality. This is where startups are incubated, guided, and unleashed into the wild world of business. We know you'll love the space!

But there's more in store after this kickoff event! Here's some of the 2024 programming we're working on for Startup Grind Colorado Springs:

🌟 Exceptional Keynote Speakers: Prepare to be inspired by a lineup of renowned and successful entrepreneurs who have been in your shoes. They'll share their incredible stories, insights, and invaluable lessons they've learned along the way.

🌐 Powerful Networking: The startup world thrives on connections, and we're looking to foster events that are networking wonderlands. You'll get to rub shoulders with fellow entrepreneurs, potential investors, mentors, and industry experts. You'll have the chance to forge new partnerships, maybe even find your next co-founder, and uncover game-changing opportunities.

🚀 Pitch Competitions: Witness the excitement as brave startup founders pitch their groundbreaking ideas to a panel of experts and potential investors. A high-stakes event where innovation meets opportunity.

🎆 Empowering Workshops: Knowledge is power, and we're all about empowering you. Get the opportunity to participate in workshops led by industry leaders where you can hone your entrepreneurial skills, learn about effective marketing strategies, gain insights into securing funding, and more.

🎨 Philanthropy and Community: We're all about giving back. We'll be looking to partner with community organizations and nonprofits to do good locally within the startup scene.

🎉 Parties: Who doesn't love to have some downtime? With all that hard work everyone is putting in, we'll be ready to let loose. We plan to have a summer and winter party, where you can dance, unwind, and continue connecting with fellow entrepreneurs in a lively and vibrant atmosphere.
