Inflective Havoc
Reflections on Our Big Entrepreneurial Times from Jan Horsfall

First a Spark, Then a Flame

  I’m so excited about the effect that Startup Colorado has already had in Colorado Springs. Thanks to the amazing folks in Boulder – including our friends at Foundry Group and CU – we’re now fanning the flame of rapidly increasing entrepreneurial interest. Here’s to a grass fire!

This week, Ian Lee, along with the gang at Ian’s company, Tins.ly, plowed ahead to get two new entrepreneurial events on the calendar full time.

Open Coffee Club:

Taking place on the first and third Thursday of every month from 7:30-9:30am at Pikes Perk on 14 SouthTejon Street, we’ll combine networking and caffeine to help entrepreneurs in the Colorado Springs area.  In addition, a local expert will lead an informal discussion covering a topic related to startup businesses and entrepreneurship.  Our first meeting will take place on December 1st – this Thursday – and will feature yours truly leading a discussion covering topics ranging from Startup Colorado to the love of all things entrepreneurial and how to create network density in Colorado as a whole and Colorado Springs specifically.

Startup Cheers:

Taking place on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month from 5:00-7:00pm at the V-bar on 19 East Kiowa Street, we appreciate that entrepreneurs need entrepreneurs and that companies form from comrades, partners, & friends. So what better way to foster these friendships then by socializing in a casual environment with like-minded people?  The very first event will take place on December 8th.

I urge you all to join us as we create a deeper network of understanding by coming to these events and bookmarking this site which will continue to highlight the newer additions as we bring them online for the folks in G.I. Village: Springs Startup!

I want to personally thank Ian Lee, Nick Lee and John Stewart – along with Chris Franz – for their support of these fantastic additions to our newco culture here in southern Colorado!

– Jan
