Another spring in Boulder is throwing 10″ of snow one day and melting all off the next. Bright sun is welcoming in the spring and summer, and those of us that were welcomed here are pushing forward the invitation to you, startup lover, to visit Boulder May 4-8.
We are hosting Boulder Startup Week May 4-8th. The startups in town are rolling out the red carpet (not really, I don’t think there is one in town) but figuratively, for you, talented developer, designer, UI, manager or startup enthusiast, to come for a visit. There are a ton of jobs for developers, marketers, designers and managers (and we need more talent in town!).
The week will be full of coworking, hackathons, hikes, rides, parties, Ignite Boulder (largest Ignite in the world), Boulder New Tech Meetup and many, many more events.
Here is a sample of events
