Economic Engines: Mobilizing Startup + Angel Investor Ecosystems

For many communities, growing the local economy is a major economic development focus. Startups play a vital role in creating a sense of place as they meet the demands of the community. A common thread for many locations is an unwavering passion to protect their unique character while supporting a year-round economy. Join Rockies Venture Club (RVC) and panelists Jake Rishavy (Exec. Director, Chaffee County EDC) and David Back (Chairman, Tattered Cover Bookstores) as they share best practices around building and sustaining vibrant startup ecosystems and local angel networks - in any location - that create jobs and long term impact while preserving the distinct 'local flavor' of our prized communities.
