In partnership with Uncharted, the summit includes four days of experiences and collisions. There will be a mixture of private and public activities for ventures, investors, leading experts, policymakers, school districts, healthcare providers, early care and education providers, along with other individuals who are passionate about this work.
By discovering specific content and issues related to child development, attendees will gain the potential for even greater impact. We want everyone to feel excited about the innovative solutions happening in our backyard along with better knowledge of who is doing incredible work for young children in Colorado.
Attendees will leave with meaningful, memorable and value-add connections; plus amplify chance collisions and matchmaking.
Connect Colorado ecosystem members and ventures that would otherwise take longer to find and develop as well as accelerate the ability for ventures to grow their solutions within Colorado.
Attendees will leave with clear opportunities to get more involved with each other.
There will be three core events open to the entire ecosystem to attend. These will be designed as critical moments of collision, inspiration and education, but with surprising elements that spark delight. These are not typical networking sessions, and will take place in the late afternoon and evening.
The 18 ventures accepted into the Acceleration Lab will participate in a robust and full 4-day experience in Denver. Time will be divided between venture development sessions, meetings with investors, ecosystem partners and pilot sites, a field trip, and a large evening showcase (spanning two nights) where ventures will publicly present their ideas. Ventures should be prepared for high energy days with lots of curated opportunities for meaningful conversations with key Colorado partners.
Acceleration Lab ventures will demonstrate their solutions and be available to meet with audience members.
Designed to promote conversation around critical issues in child development.
Involving a quick-pitch component to share ideas and build new connections.
