The Role of Rural in Cultivating a Healthy Statewide Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

A pioneering spirit and entrepreneurial mindset have long-been at the heart of the Colorado story. From mountain to city to plains, industrious innovators and problem solvers are coming together to cultivate a diverse and dynamic landscape of economic opportunity for all Coloradoans. If you love exploring all four-corners of our state as much as we do, you won’t want to miss this conversation with entrepreneurial leaders from Burlington, Grand Junction, Gunnison and Salida. In the discussion, we’ll explore the elements that contribute to a healthy entrepreneurial eco-system – from belief to mentorship, access to networks and resources, public-private partnerships and workforce development. And along the way, we’ll be reminded that it takes only a few strong-willed, committed & collaborative individuals to make a difference in the advancement of a region’s economy and to help shape a positive community identity.

Discussion presented by Startup Colorado in partnership with Something Independent.
