What we're about

Purpose: To stimulate the free flow of entrepreneurial ideas and share practical wisdom. The Start Up Meet Up (SUMU) will provide a range of programs and events specifically for startup entrepreneurs and business owners in the Northern Colorado - Boulder/Denver areas. Our aim is to deliver educational information and valuable content that will assist you in starting up and running your own business.

We provide a variety of ways for entrepreneurs to learn, grow, gain essential skills and make valuable connections through networking. We do this is by delivering a regular series of: educational classes, networking opportunities, and social events. The basic SUMU philosophy is to "do good and do no harm" and we perfect for people who:

• have an awesome idea and want to launch a business,

• have started a business however you are struggling,

• do not yet have an idea however know you want to be an entrepreneur,

• are already successful and want to amp up your success,

• and would like to learn how to consciously create and grow your business.

Join us and start connecting and learning with fellow entrepreneurs in the Denver-Boulder area.

Affordable Housing for Starving Entrepreneurs?

NiCHE Workspaces

Where can entrepreneurs live around here. Plenty of time and money are spent on housing or lack, thereof. The two presentations address this problem experienced in Boulder. We'll have two interactive segments: "My Awesome Idea" - Co-living housing project needs some market messaging ideas for an affordable co-op and cohousing neighborhood taht appeals to people who prefer to walk, take the bus or ride a bike, by Alan O'Hashi. "The Good, Bad, and the Ugly" - Learn from Jim Leach, founder of Wonderland Homes about his journey as one of the leading cohousing gurus in the nation. Network with entrepreneurs, your peers, your target clients, your tribe. Also, there are expenses involved with these events. While it HAS NOT been the practice in the past, we will be "passing the hat" for non-mandatory contributions of any amount to defray costs of maintaining the Meetup.com monthly fee, hosting expenses like for snacks and beverages. Overtime, we also plan to have "pot luck" carry-in food activities.
