Entrepreneurs assemble: Denver Startup Week passes 10,000 attendees


Denver Startup Week surpassed more than 10,000 registered attendees this week. That’s roughly triple the amount of people who registered for the first startup week in 2012. It also makes it the largest free entrepreneurial event in the country.

The event has proven more popular every year, drawing not only more attendees but also more sessions and bigger names. This year the entrepreneur’s festival had more than 230 separate events. That's up from 70 in its first year.

But if you’re worried the action stops with the end of Denver Startup Week today, don’t. On Oct. 9 next week the the Colorado chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organization is hosting the Rocky Mountain Entrepreneurial Summit at the Hyatt Regency by the Convention Center. This event, however, isn't free. Tickets are $395 a pop, which includes four tickets to The Motet and Flobots at a private show at Red Rocks.

This summit features Lance Armstrong, Aron Ralston, Amy Van Dyken, John Jacobs, Brad Feld and other local and national business leaders. It's a long day of sessions, too, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. at Red Rocks.
