Investing in Main Street & the Makers that Make It

Main street, USA has historically been an incubator for the maker-minded entrepreneur. Main street is resilient. Today, through the vision and commitment from civic-minded investors, locally-spawned retailers, chefs and restrauteurs, Main Street is emerging stronger than ever from a generational pattern of boom and bust. In this special Denver Startup Week edition of “Stories from the Square”, lean back and learn about the born–on-the-block success stories that have come to define Larimer Square as an iconic Denver Main Street. Hear from the investors and business owners, many of whom have been calling this block home for more than 20 years, on what it takes to achieve a successful Main Street culture and small-business friendly environment.

Panelists include:
Jeff Hermanson: CEO & President, Larimer Associates
Troy Guard: Chef / Owner, TAG Restaurant Group
Chad McWhinney: CEO and Co-Founder, McWhinney
Beth Gruitch: General Manager/Proprietor, Crafted Concepts
Jennifer Jasinski: Executive Chef / Owner, Crafted Concepts
