Boulder receives serious recognition as a great place to live and work. You can check out the full list of Boulder lists here. Sometimes it’s like Boulder won Best in Show for being a city.
But lists don’t capture the spirit of Boulder and the tech community. Even if Boulder was named one of 8 Fabulous Winter Wonderlands by Where to Retire magazine. Lists don’t capture how much work goes into making this community thrive.How you can show up to numerous events and meet incredible, intelligent people who are open to helping you and the community out. If you’re looking to connect with entrepreneurs, VCs, bloggers or just those passionate about social media, you have your choices:
- Boulder Denver New Tech Meetup
- Silicon Flatirons
- WordCamp Denver
- Denver and Boulder Ignites
- Boulder Open Coffee Club
- Bloggers and Beer
- Social Media Club
- Front Range Blogger Meetup
- Chicks Who Click
- Venture Capital in the Rockies
- Front Range Girls Geek Dinner
- Glue Conference and the list goes on.
Lists don’t capture what it’s like to wake up to 300 days of sunshine a year, go on a hike after work, to walk into a coffee shop and instantly know people. The New York Times might ask is “Florida, the Next Hotbed of Venture Capital?” but the Front Range is building a community to be reckoned with.
So to capture the essence that is this community, Boulder.me would love to get the bloggers to contribute a blog post on what it’s like to work and play in Boulder (and Denver too). Something that captures the spirit of Boulder and the greater tech community more than just a list can. Write a blog post and e-mail it to us at eellis at metzger.com, and we’ll compile a list of the blog posts. We’d love to get entries by March 15, so send us the link once you post.
