Accelerating the Next Generation of Founders: Innovation in K-12 Education

Accelerators are all the rage. From the big wigs like Techstars to Boomtown to dozens of smaller, issue-area driven programs, accelerators provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to hone their skills, learn from their peers, tap into mentor networks, and become stronger founders.

Learn how three organizations in Colorado are supporting entrepreneurship for students and educators with equity and agency at the center.
