The One Denver Conference You Shouldn’t Miss: Angel Capital Summit 2010

denver mapMaybe you’re busy. You don’t have enough time. (If time’s the case, you might want to read yesterday’s post.) It’s no secret I’m an advocate of picking up knowledge where people are dropping it, and I’m here to tell you – there’s some mad knowledge being dropped in Denver this next week.

Angel Capital Summit is one of the largest events in the country in the angel and venture capital scene. It’s an event that’s grown by leaps and bound year after year and they’re expecting up to 900 attendees this year. And if you’re a business owner in the Denver/Boulder area, you’re crazy to miss it.


Because it’s right here in your own backyard and an event filled with people you need to know. Maybe your company isn’t looking for funding – maybe you’ve got a great thing going on. I’m honored to have been invited to be one of the speakers and can tell you that the series of events over the two days jazzes me. But hey – if you want to put your business on autopilot or not pick up the real deal from the people who make funding for new companies like Facebook, Twitter, Gist and more HAPPEN, stay at home.

Here’s what you can do:

Conferences can get expensive (this, I fully know). But this is in your own backyard and even if I weren’t speaking, I’d be attending. It’s $39 on the low side, $99 on the high side. I’m thinking your business is worth more than $99, so take the deal. Connect with people. Get smarter. Make someone else smarter. Leave the coffee shop and start working things out with a pencil. The holidays is a sure-fire time for our brains to shut-down. Kick the tires and light the fires. Get Maverick (but please don’t “go rogue”).

I’ll see you there.
