Spark Boulder: Incubation for Innovation


It has been a while since we updated the blog so we are going to play around with posting reviews / updates on great things in the Boulder tech community.

The city of Boulder fosters innovation and entrepreneurship-this is abundantly apparent at The University of Colorado. UC students have designed and created Spark Boulder, a space where entrepreneurs can come together to combine their talents and accelerate innovative ideas. Spark Boulder is open to both UC students and the community, as the melding of many different minds is key to innovation.

Spark Boulder offers members a variety of professional services, such as legal advice and mentorship, paired with server services and devices necessary for developers to create ground-breaking projects. The program has always been completely run by talented and aspiring students-they have been involved in every step of creation and growth including finances, business plans, marketing, and design.

Spark Boulder continuously runs special events to promote and teach entrepreneurs how to create a successful startup business. Seminars such as “How to Start a Startup”, “iLaunch”, and “Art and Entrepreneurship” are packed full of creative and helpful information for budding businesses. Spark Boulder also offers the opportunity to host your own event.

Although Spark Boulder is open to the community as well as students, UC students do receive an exceptional discounted price for services. The program offers students three options-

  • Student Basic Membership $34
  • Student Premium Membership $49
  • Student Premiere Membership $80

Each package includes a variety of benefits, all including mentorship and legal services. Spark Boulder offers community members two options-

  • Community Basic Membership $119
  • Community Premiere Membership $149

Spark Boulder members enjoy benefits outside of the program as well, including discounts at local restaurants and services, free legal consultation, and free coffee.

Spark Boulder is an entrepreneurial playground with a creative atmosphere perfect for incubating innovative ideas. 24 hour access to a huge work space, paired with a fully catered kitchen, sophisticated tools and devices, and welcoming team members means you may never have to leave.

    It should say CU instead of UC (doesn’t make sense to me either, but that’s what it is).
