The evening will include a Fireside chat with Heidi Ganahl, Founder of Camp Bow Wow and Fight Back Foundation, as well as networking with food and drinks from Vapor Distillery.  Denver Startup Grind attendees use the code DENVER for 25% off tickets.

Heidi Ganahl dealt with adversity early in her life when she lost her husband in a plane crash, but her entrepreneurial spirit helped her pick herself up and found Camp Bow Wow, a $100 million leader in the pet and franchise industry hitting the Inc 500/5000 list 5 years in a row. For this effort, she has received many accolades including Fortune Magazine’s Top 10 Most Promising Entrepreneurs, and the 2016 Colorado Brave Leader Award.

After selling Camp Bow Wow a few years ago, Heidi dedicated herself to “giving back.” She was elected in a heated state-wide race to the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado and is on several other boards focusing on entrepreneurship and education. She also founded the Fight Back Foundation, an incubator built to support social entrepreneurs that want to tackle the most pressing societal issues confronting kids today, and is launching her new brand, the SheFactor, this spring. She is the Chair of Job Creators Network board, and a leader in workforce development and small business startups.

Heidi started her career by attending the University of Colorado at Boulder for a bachelor’s degree in Business, and eventually went on to receive a master’s degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of Denver. Heidi is married to one of the top BBQ cooks in the country and has four children ranging in age from 6 to 23.
