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?
What we now call the Denver IDEA Cafe 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.

If you have any questions, contact John Wren at [masked] or [masked].

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
