Happy Holidays

Announcements:

New Tech Board - As the group is about to reach 9000 members it seemed like a great time to create The New Tech Board of Directors. Please nominate the people you think should be on the 2013 BOD. Elections will be held in February. - Nominate someone today

The Silicon Flatirons (SF) Center is a donor supported institution. SF does not receive direct funding from the State or the University. Once a year they do a pledge drive. If you believe in what Silicon Flatirons is doing, if you find value in the programs or services, or if you want to build opportunities for innovation to flourish at CU-Boulder, then I encourage you to support the Silicon Flatirons Entrepreneurship Initiative. Two ways you can support Silicon Flatirons.
