With hundreds of events lined up and more than 10,000 expected attendees, Denver Startup Week 2016
has something for every entrepreneur, including a job fair, the Denver Startup Week Pitch Challenge and a discussion with Silicon Valley
regular Suzanne Cryer and producer and writer Adam Countee who will take at a panel called The Intersection of TV and Tech Startups.
This year's events kick off with a Sept. 12 breakfast
keynoted by Ryan Wood, a former fullback for the Dallas Cowboys and co-founder of billion-dollar Under Armour. The day will end with a party at Denver Union Station
expected to draw 1,500 people or more.
Beyond being just for entrepreneurs, this year's startup week will feature a startup job fair
on Wednesday at the Buell Theatre. Organizers say that last year more than 40 companies were at the job fair seeking candidates and this year they expect even more companies to attend.
However, what's likely one of the more anticipated events is The Intersection of TV and Tech Startups
, a discussion with Countee and Cryer of HBO startup spoof Silicon Valley,
hosted by Colorado-based satellite TV provider DISH
. They will talk about the show's comedy and the culture of tech startups and participate in a Q&A.
The week will end Thursday night at Galvanize Platte
with the finals of the first Denver Startup Week Pitch Challenge
