The Evolution of Work: Millennials, Technology, and the 21st Century
Limited Capacity seats available

The “workplace” is a relatively modern concept. Service industries have only truly grown over the past five decades; small-scale manufacturers are radically different than the factories of the late 19th century. With the dual rise of the Millennial Generation and the widespread adoption of technology, the workplace is going through a new adaptation. Join guest speaker, Morgan Smith, as he discusses these three key areas:
  1. Management techniques + interpersonal relationships.  How can managers best capitalize on their workers' talents?  How can they attract high-level workers?  How can they retain high-level workers?
  2. Use of technology and place.  Is it necessary to force a worker to sit at a desk 9-to-5 at a set workplace since they can do everything you need (besides face time, and even that's changing) in a coffee shop?  How can small businesses capitalize on the evolution of the workplace?
  3. Expectations and purpose of work / life.  How can companies offer the best "set-up" for young talent?  How can businesses best engage Millennials?  What are Millennials actually searching for in work?

Davetech vs. Goliacorp: How Brand Engineering Helps Innovative Technology Companies Take on the Big Guys
Limited Capacity seats available

When it comes to branding for second-stage innovative technology companies, there typically exists a David and Goliath-type situation. Your big idea is better than the dominant players in the space. You have a highly specialized, superior solution, but you have quite a tall task in taking market share from the big guys. Your brand doesn’t look as good as it really is, and the right people don’t know the right things about your company (if they know it at all).  In this session, you’ll learn about how Brand Engineering bridges the gap between the science of science and the art of selling it—converting tech talk into brand love, and connecting tech companies with their customers.

Building a business from the ground up on your own can be a daunting task and a lonely process, and, if you're a solopreneur, that's doubly true. Rather than to go through the arduous process of finding a co-founder or business partner, consider seeking a community of like-minded individuals. Tapping into a strong support network can provide a significant boost as your business grows and transitions. The question is where do you find a group of connections, not just contacts?  Join Co-Founder of Galvanize, Chris Onan, as he discusses the why and how of finding the right mentors, collaborating in an entrepreneurial community, and building your support network.

Re-imagining Healthcare Luncheon
Limited Capacity filling up

The demand for value in health care (higher quality at a lower cost) is a powerful force in creating change and disruptive innovation in how healthcare is delivered.  The healthcare sector is respnding to this demand and we are already starting to experience changes in the way care is delivered via the incorporation of digital and mobile health technologies into the care experience, and the continued evolution of biotechnology products.  These technologies along with fundamental changes in business models, are all centered on making healthcare more accessible and affordable. The long term belief and hope of these innovators and change agents is that in aggregate, these advances will lead to permanent changes in payment modes and the provision of care, and ultimately improve the quality of health status for all. 

 

This panel will discuss the role of innovation and entrepreneus in the health care space, how health systems are using innovation in technology to improve the value of the healthcare they deliver and examples of other disruptive innovations that will change lives in health care.   



Lunch will be provided, compliments of UCHealth.

That Which Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Being an entrepreneur is challenging in many regards and one of challenges is managing the ups and downs that come from starting and running a business. While the  media loves to focus the successes of startups – winning rounds of funding, acquiring smaller startups and achieving unicorn status, the less glorious tales of  entrepreneurs’ struggles to overcome challenges, the pain and scars of failure, rejection and loss of confidence tend to be glossed over or completely ignored. Great character is forged in the fire of adversity and many entrepreneurs and startups have risen to meet these challenges and achieve success. This panel of entrepreneurs will share some of the challenges and market flounders they faced as startups and how handled them.

Cannabis Journalism: “America’s New Normal”
Limited Capacity seats available

I know cannabis seems fun and exotic. I know it elicits half-baked puns and decades-old stereotypes, but I believe cannabis is a serious topic. It has far-reaching implications, from federal drug policy, medical research, and international trade to local taxes and even vending machine ordinances. With other states looking to Colorado as an example, of what to do and what not to do, accurate and responsible reporting on cannabis is more critical than ever.

Hack the Dot Hackathon
Limited Capacity seats available

A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, non developers, marketers, designers and curious web people come together to build ideas around a single domain name.

Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly while meeting people in your tech/startup community.

There will be pizza. ROSALEE'S PIZZA. And beer.

What to Bring / How to Prepare:

• Bring your laptop and charger.

Not required but suggested you coder types:

• Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/

• Setup a github.com account

How does it work?

Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams.

Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.

Step 3: Teams have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.

Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.

What do you get at the event?

FOOD!

SWAG!

FRIENDS!

How much does it cost?

It’s FREE!

NewTech Longmont Meetup

As technology becomes smaller, smarter and integrated into everything, wearing it has become part of the social standard. It is no surprise then that wearable technology is being adopted widely by many industries and their consumers. According to Statista there will be upward of half a billion connected wearable devices worldwide by 2018 and rising to just shy of a billion wearable devices by 2021.

 

In this New Tech Colorado session we will peek into the world of health and fitness wearable technology. We will explore how innovations in the space of wearable technology are making it easier for individuals to understand their body and their health, and perhaps get a glimpse of what the future holds.

Please come and join the conversation and interact with the panel as we take you on a journey beyond the smartwatch. Our conversations will include discussions on topics such as:

  • Connected Health: Constant health monitoring and the impact to patient care and individual health.

  • Data: whose data, my data, your data, what about data privacy? What are the benefits of shared health and fitness data.

  • Policy & Regulation: How are wearable innovations viewed by the regulators and policy makers.

  • Utility: What’s in store for the future and the utility of health and fitness wearables.

 

Agenda:

  • Social time; networking and welcome

  • Announcements; job openings & talent availability

  • Thanks to our sponsors

  • This month’s theme topic and panel discussion

The Right Problem to Solve: Walking a Mile in Your Customer's Shoes
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

All too often entrepreneurs attempt to bring a solution to market before really understanding the challenges faced by the customers they intend to serve. This is a recipe for failure at worst— mediocrity at best. On the other hand, it’s amazing how quickly a new company can achieve success when they’ve really taken the time to walk a mile in the shoes of those customers and identify the most important problem to solve. In this fireside chat, Todd Kinzle will share the story of how he and his partners found the right problem to solve in the auto industry by first becoming dealers themselves. This approach lead them to a successful product launch and to quickly being acquired by one of the largest players in the industry.

Founder & Owner, Big Red F Restaurant Group
Dave Query has a long history with food and cooking in Boulder, Colorado. It started at the palace of all things good grub, Mustard's Last Stand, where at a young age he learned the very gratifying return of making someone something to eat and having them really enjoy it. After attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and a stint as the chef aboard Malcolm Forbes' yacht, Dave worked and staged in some of the best and busiest kitchens of Chicago, San Francisco, and New Orleans, all the while eating out at every dive that would take him. In 1988, he returned home to Colorado and earned some incredible press, first for the Lick Skillet Cafe, a funky mountain cabin in Gold Hill, then at Cliff Young's, Denver's bastion for fine dining, and finally for Q's Restaurant in the Hotel Boulderado. | In 1994, he opened the first of what would become The Big Red F Restaurant Group: Zolo Southwestern Grill. Dubbed "the hottest restaurant in town," Zolo offered fine, soulful southwestern cuisine in an easy-going environment. Nine months later, Dave opened Jax Fish House on Pearl Street. The center oyster bar was an immediate success, and Jax has been thumping ever since. | With Zolo and Jax dialed in, Dave proceeded to open more restaurants in the Big Red F family, each a stronghold of fine food, unmatched ambiance, and expert hospitality: Jax Denver, in November 1996, in a building that Jack Kerouac used to live in and Tom Waits wrote a song about; Rhumba, on the same block as Jax in Boulder, which nine years later transformed into Centro Latin Kitchen...

Solutions Selling: Total Customer Service
Limited Capacity filling up

Jeff Binder and Dave Fellows founded Layer3 TV in Boston in 2013; in 2014 the company opened a new HQ in Denver. The company under Binder's leadership has raised more than $80 Million and was named a Forbes Hottest Startup in 2015 with a valuation of $385 Million.  Layer3 is trying to improve on the reputation many cable providers have gained as stodgy, hulking corporations trying to nickel-and-dime their customers.  It isn’t just rolling out red-carpet customer service in the form of fancy cars or a “white-glove” customer experience, such as your ability to text the company whenever you have questions or concerns.  It’s also trying to lure subscribers with the promise of next-gen technology embedded in its product.  All of this is aimed at raising the bar for cable service, making it so that consumers feel they’re actually getting what they pay for — or more - providing total customer service.

Mental Fitness for Entrepreneurs
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

As an entrepreneur, your greatest asset is you. You are worth more than any amount of funding and any idea. Your humanity is the birthplace of your innovation, creativity, leadership skills, passion, integrity and resilience. It's where the awesome ideas will come from and how you will get through the challenges. But did you know that entrepreneurs face a rate of depression that is four times that of non-entrepreneurs? They often feel alone with their rollercoaster of emotions, and don't know how to manage their mental fitness. Wellness is a competitive advantage!

Key learning objectives of this discussion include:
• Why an entrepreneur's mental health is important to a start-up's success
• How to recognize one's own strengths, weaknesses and emotions
• The signs that may indicate a need for help
• Skills for self-help and resources for professional help
