What is it like to work remotely in Steamboat? Share your challenges, ideas, and the benefits you realize at this happy hour. Enjoy $2 Bud and $3 Guinness, Fat Tire, et al from the Old Town Pub starting at 4pm and a roundtable dicussion (see below) will start at 5pm. The first round of appetizers is on me (Scott) and we'll go until 7pm or the first horse comes inside, whichever comes first!
Hi-Tech or No-Tech, this happy hour is intended for three demographics: (1) anyone who runs a business from Steamboat, (2) anyone who lives in Steamboat but collects a paycheck from an employer outside Routt County, and (3) anyone who is interested in solving challenges experienced by #1 and #2 (translation: business opportunity).
Hear from Dale Morris, a processor architect at HP, who moved to Steamboat in 2000 and started working remotely via a dial-up modem. Dale will share the reasons why he moved here over a decade ago, the evolution he's witnessed, and answer questions about what he sees as the most important benefits and challenges facing our area in the future.
Hear from Scott Bideau, a software sales engineer, who moved to Steamboat just last year, in part because of the community Ignite provides. Scott will share the reasons he choose Steamboat and discuss with the group two important topics for LNBs and remote employees: reliable broadband/cell service and air transportation.
Let us hear from you! Why did you move to Steamboat and what are the challenges you'd like to see Ignite help you overcome?
