Get help to start in a new direction.

We share startup experience and we brainstorm the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month at the Englewood (Colorado) library.

Today is a join meeting with the leader of an Accidental Creative Circle, and we'll talk about the new Accidental Creative Circle that is just getting started in Denver, and

you are invited to the next meeting, RSVP "No" and you'll get an invitation to the next one, RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/accidental/Denver-CO/998852/

Join us at an IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop 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

Our business meeting for our Englewood group, open to everyone, is held at 4 p.m. the first Friday of each month to discuss changes in the meeting, and to sign up volunteers to chair meetings for the next month.

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, which may evolve into a new Franklin Circle Peer Advisory Group.

“ What a great concept, and it created a lovely opportunity to meet with other people in the community. Starting a business can be a lonely venture; I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to break that cycle. ” Megan Tackett on May 7, 2011.

“ This was a good experience for me. I enjoyed the people and the brainstorming. Since we all face challenges of some type, I would heartily recommend it to anyone involved in a startup activitiy. Jack Rouff on Apr 30, 2011.

“ Great format, small group works best for this. I encourage everyone to try this group if you want some help getting started. ” Anthony Sanchez, Marketing Club on Sep 25, 2010.

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 who are interested in helping their local chamber to  provide more help to startups.

Join us any Friday 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.

    Join us for an Accidental Creative Circle the way Todd Henry suggests in his book The Accidental Creative, asking ourselves these questions: 1) What are you working on? 2) What is inspiring you? and 3) What would you like prompting on? "Your circle could possibly be the biggest catalyst on your journey to experiencing regular and brilliant insights. Of all of the practices in this book (The Accidental Creative) I encourage you to take this one most seriously. The sooner you leverage the poser of interdependence, the sooner you will gain traction on the things that matter to you." Todd Henry See http://www.meetup.com/accidental/Denver-CO/998852/

    PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED!
