Beyond Old-School Manufacturing

Making stuff is not the dirty, dumb, & dangerous endeavor that caused our granddads to lose digits. Especially in Colorado!

Come hear from long-time experts as they describe what the new manufacturing landscape has become. High tech change-makers have helped reinvent the process from assembly line workers to technicians, graphic designers and engineers. Find out why Bart Taylor left being publisher of ColoradoBiz Magazine to create CompanyWeek, a new on-line publication focusing solely on makers and manufacturers. Come learn why Tim Heaton, former President & CEO of Coolerado decided to help launch the new non-profit, Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance. Find out how Mark Goldstein, President of Scott’s Liquid Gold, was able to continue keeping his company relevant by expanding from woodcare to skincare. Learn how Reed Silberman, former professional snowboard coach, founded Ink Monstr and recently moved its headquarters from Denver’s RiNo to Sun Valley. Moderated by Jeff Romine, former brewer and regional transit analyst, this session will send you away with a new perspective on how manufacturing is growing in Colorado!
