Boulder Start-up Week

Bocc2011-revised A long time reader of this blog brought this event to my attention.  I know there are a lot of these type of events starting to crop-up around the country but Boulder has definitely been a leader among the pack. 

This week, Boulder Start-up Week is holding a contest to fly 5 entrepreneurs and engineers to come out to Boulder to participate in this event.  The deadline is Monday.  BTW, there have been no women who have applied.  Come on now, here is a great opportunity for women to be part of the start-up world. 

There are over 40 events that will take place over the week.  Here is the criteria for entering the content. 

Are you an engineer or entrepreneur?
1) Why you are interested in coming out to Boulder?
2) A resume or examples of your work (your personal site, etc)
3) Your phone number

Email the answers to the above questions to ryanwanger at gmail. 

I admit, I have never been out to Boulder.   But from what I understand, it is a great place to spend a week thinking about your future.

    I haven’t been to Boulder since 1974. I thought it was a beautiful, relaxing and happening place at the time. It was at the base of some very beautiful mountains. Being from the Northeast I couldn’t take the “laidback” atmosphere for very long. I rented an apartment and got a job there but after awhile I had to get back to the action.
