Foundry at Denver Startup Week 2020
Like all events these days, Denver Startup Week is going virtual and Foundry is excited to participate this year in a variety of ways.
For our 4th year in a row, we are proud to co-host the Pledge 1% Colorado Nonprofit Pitch Contest celebrating Impact + Innovation in our community on September 16 at 3pm MT. This event was created to shine the Startup Week spotlight on Nonprofits in the front range and to get them plugged in and connected to the Boulder/Denver Startup Community. The event has facilitated $100k+ in grants to nonprofits over the past three years and generated awareness in the startup community about the great work they are doing. Thanks to the Knight Foundation and Anchor Point Foundation for supporting this event from year one!
You can learn more and RSVP to attend and see the nonprofits pitch here. If you or your company are interested in contributing to the nonprofit prize pool this year, please reach out to [email protected]
