Lets get the party started (again)! Boulder’s own Startup Drinks is back! A simple concept: startup culture in cities around the world gathers around a bar to have a pint and discuss what they are working on, what they need help with and what they can do for each other. Be on the look out for events around Boulder this year. Follow the Startup Drinks blog, Boulder.me, Startup Drinks on Twitter and/or the Boulder tech calendar for continued information and please contact me if you have ideas, want to host events, or spread the word about other activities.
Liquid courage will be flowing at the first event of 2009, a partner event with the life sciences startup club BioBeers at The Foundry on February 24th. As Adam Rubenstein of BioBeers so aptly states, “…this is our time to shine, to be creative and to rejuvenate the economy with a shot of molecular innovation! Smart people, frothy beer and an exchange of ideas is as good a place to start as any…” Oh yeah, and there will be drink specials.
Why: Do you need a reason?
When: February 24th at 6:30pm (feel free to arrive later – see below)
Where: The Foundry (no, not Brad Feld’s office, sorry to get all your hopes up) at 1109 Walnut St. in Boulder.
Who: You and a bunch of friends from the Boulder tech/entrepreneur scene and a crew of sure to be crazy BioBeers characters.
Of note: Jason Mendelson, Managing Director of the Foundry Group, is speaking at a very interesting Silicon Flatiron’s Crash Course prefacing our Startup Drinks + BioBeers Bonanza titled “Raising Venture Capital”. The seminar is being given at the Wolf Law building, rm 204 on the CU Boulder campus from 5:15 – 6:45, more info (HERE). For those in attendance, we can gather afterwards and head to The Foundry. I will be wearing a Bianchi cycling cap, find me.
