Virtual Networking via Gatheround
Are you ready to connect with entrepreneurs from across the State of Colorado?! Well then, you came to the right place!  During this event, you will be randomly paired with another entrepreneur and routed to a virtual breakout room; be ready to introduce yourself and give a quick elevator pitch. These rounds will move fast, so enjoy the moment and follow up with your new friend later in the week at an in-person event at WSSW.

Contact information can only be shared in a group chat on this software. We suggest you have contact information (that you would like to share publically) ready to copy and paste. For example, you might have a note with your name and LinkedIn link handy.

We cannot wait to see you and introduce you to new friends. Happy networking!

WSSW (Virtual) Book Club!
We’re bringing WSSW virtual bookclub back this year!  This year we’ll be reading BE. 2.0 by Jim Collins. What's the roadmap to create a company that not only survives its infancy but thrives, changing the world for decades to come? The book includes the original text of Beyond Entrepreneurship, as well as four new chapters and fifteen new essays. BE 2.0 pulls together the key concepts across Collins' thirty years of research into one integrated framework called The Map. The result is a singular reading experience, which presents a unified vision of company creation that will fascinate not only Jim's millions of dedicated readers worldwide, but also introduce a new generation to his remarkable work.

Plus! The first 10 registered participants will receive a FREE COPY of the book shipped directly to their home in the weeks leading up to West Slope Startup Week thanks to our amazing event sponsors. You will be contacted by the event organizers for your shipping information if you are one of the first 10 registered participants.

Professional Headshots for Entrepreneurs

Startup Colorado is pleased to offer professional headshot sessions to 10 entrepreneurs during this year’s West Slope Startup Week in Grand Junction.We understand that the cost of getting a headshot taken can be prohibitive to emerging entrepreneurs, yet having a professional photo available that represents you and your brand is so important.These sessions will be available to entrepreneurs who currently don’t have a professional headshot, or for those who have the financial need.  If you already have a great photo in place or have the means to secure one, please consider leaving room for an entrepreneur with more pressing needs. To secure your headshot session, please fill out this following form and the Startup Colorado team will followup with next steps.

The venue, Aesthetic Collective, offers a variety of interesting backgrounds for your photo. Take a look at their interesting space online.

Yin Yoga for the Entrepreneur

Join us for a free yoga class to help you relax and unwind. Taught by local yoga instructor, Summer Estrella, at the charming Aesthetic Collective space.

Start your morning with an hour on your mat, becoming more in-tune and present with your inner world.

We will begin class with a short, motion sequence to wake up energetic pathways and facial lines to unlock stagnation, move energy and lubricate joints.

Then settle into a yin style practice of long held postures to bring an introspective focus and quietude to our otherwise fast-paced, multi-tasking mode of operation as an entrepreneur. As we target connective tissue health through our practice we open through the body, into the mind-body connection.

This class will leave you ready to move into the rest of your day with a sense of clarity, calm, and rejuvenation.

 Please bring your own yoga mat if you are able. Otherwise, some blankets and mats will be provided.
