the goal

Educate & Inspire

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.

Catalyze

Attendees will leave with meaningful, memorable and value-add connections; plus amplify chance collisions and matchmaking.

Form Relationships

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.

Activate the Ecosystem

Attendees will leave with clear opportunities to get more involved with each other.

attendee experience

Public attendees

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.

Acceleration lab ventures

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.

Ecosystem members

Select ecosystem members and leaders will be invited to meet ventures during the day at pre-scheduled times to understand needs around matchmaking and deeper supports.
