Get help to start in a new direction.
We invite a couple of experienced business owners to share startup experience and we brainstorm.
Our guest speakers this week will be Travis LaBerge and Russell Dennis. Travis is the Founder and Executive Director of the Parlando School for the Arts, www.parlando.org. Russell is the Executive Director of the Colorado Chapter of the U.S. Veterans Chamber of Commerce.
Join us when you aren't sure what you are going to do Monday morning. Life's too short for any of us to learn from just our own experience!
You can RSVP here or via a link on our Facebook Page to Facebook event, see http://Facebook.com/Small.Business.Chamber
What is the IDEA Cafe?
Since 1994, IDEA Cafe meetings have helped people people who are starting a new career, a new project or campaign, or a new business.
We take our name from our 4-step entrepreneurship model: I- Inspiration; D- Develop Alternatives; E- Evaluate the Alternatives; and A- Take Action! Once we take action we get new information and we go through the process again. This is very similar to the heavily researched Babson College startup cycle of acting/learning/building/and- acting again described by the new book Just Start (click).
How do we help?
Those who attend (including you, we've all started something) share startup experience, we brainstorm, and we share information about upcoming events, new books, magazine articles, and useful new websites and apps as we share around the table in final words before we adjourn the formal part of the meeting.
And sometimes the most valuable part of the session is the meeting after the meeting when discussion continues between new friends.
Meetings are free and open to everyone, we just ask that you bring your brain for the brainstorming!
Who should attend?
Founded in Denver by John Wren, the IDEA Café/Startup Workshop has been meeting since 1994. Anyone who is starting a new direction, starting a new career, new project or campaign, or starting a new business is invited to join us for a boost at the end of the week, and we especially encourage members of local chambers of commerce who are interested in helping their local chamber to provide more help to startups.
Join us on the 2nd & 4th Fridays when you are headed in a new direction with your work and need a boost at the end of a long week, or when you are willing to share your startup experience.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
