LONGMONT STARTUP WEEK 2018

JULY 23-27, 2018
LSW18 will bring together entrepreneurs, wanna-preneurs, intrapreneurs, creatives, techies, inventors, business owners, and investors of all ages to connect and inspire.  It’s this support network that can make the difference between closing up shop and pushing through to success.  LSW showcases why Longmont and the northern Colorado region is the best place to start a business and builds momentum in advancing Longmont’s startup community.  Over the course of five days, multiple startup community events, panels, fireside chats, and keynote speaker presentations will be hosted by the community for the community at unique venues throughout Longmont, showcase Longmont and Northern Colorado’s entrepreneurs in advanced technology, I.T., bioscience, creative arts, culinary, and more.  Events will include topics such as design, development, marketing, finance, legal, and entrepreneur basics.  All events are FREE to attend and provide outstanding learning and networking opportunities.  

The Longmont EDP is currently seeking sponsorships and volunteers for LSW18.  Sponsors will gain brand exposure to a regional audience while supporting their local startup community.  Sponsorship packages come in a variety of levels, and custom packages are available.  Additional sponsorship opportunities are available, such as hosting an Open Coffee or Happy Hour event, or providing an in-kind sponsorship for items such as food, beverage, venue, services, etc.  Another great way to get involved, is by volunteering. Volunteers may sign up to assist with planning and organizing of LSW18, participating as a panelist or speaker at an event, or to assist with day-of logistics and event execution.  Volunteers are the spirit of LSW and without them, the weeks’ events would not be a success.
 

REAL ESTATE SHOWCASE 

September 20, 2018
The Longmont Real Estate Showcase is designed to highlight the commercial and residential real estate and development opportunities in Longmont to brokers, developers, and investors from the Denver metro and northern Colorado regions.  Following a brief presentation on Longmont, guests are taken on a guided bus tour of Longmont, including sponsored stops at key locations.  Longmont EDP will then host a lunch for all attendees where panels of regional commercial and residential brokers and developers will provide feedback on the opportunities and challenges they see for Longmont.
