We all know that some individuals are better at social mingling and small talk than others. For 
some, networking just seems easy. But it isn’t always. It takes work and planning and  commitment. Boulder professionals, Keith Dragon and friends will discuss specific methods for business networking, including the importance of identifying audiences, how to use LinkedIn, why social media is a legitimate approach, when direct mail works and ways event participation can help you reach the right customers at the right time. Generally, it comes down to organization, communication and commitment.

Did you know that founding teams with multiple co-founders have a greater chance of success? If you’re looking for someone to join your venture, looking for a venture to join, or open to either, sign up and attend our local, in-person Meetups to discover the perfect co-founder to round out your team. You’ll meet other entrepreneurs who are as energized as you are about launching a new business and who possess a wide range of unique experiences, ideas, and skills.

Key Startup Challenges Solved by Leveraging the Cloud

Over the past decade we have seen technology evolution accelerate at an unprecedented pace. New platforms, new solutions—even entirely new business models—are emerging so fast that it’s no wonder it’s so difficult for today’s start up businesses to keep up. And at the center of it all? The cloud….a term so overused and over-hyped that you can ask 10 different people what it is and get 10 different answers. 

We'll unpack the core challenges that plague today’s new businesses and present real-world, actionable examples of businesses like yours that  have leveraged Cloud IaaS to:

·         Overcome the limitations of a small IT staff—in terms of numbers and technology savvy

·         Reduce the cost and logistics associated with hardware acquisition

·         Improve IT Governance & Control

·         Deliver unprecedented flexibility & scale

·         Make affordable business continuity a reality

How to Raise Money on AngelList through Syndicates

Raising money through AngelList Syndicates is awesome, but the inner workings can be a bit of black box. Once you get someone to "lead" your Syndicate, there are a lot of things that go on behind the scenes. Foundry Group's FG Angels Syndicate invested in Ramen in November 2014. In this session, Ramen's CEO will talk about what happens before the Syndicate "goes live", what you can expect up until the day the money hits the bank, and some interesting gotchas along the way.
