Startup Weekend took on Denver for the second time, bringing in twice as many participants – a sure sign that the startup community is gaining momentum and enthusiasm!  54 participants gathered at WorkBrite @ Conference Edge, and out of 32 pitches, 9 teams were formed.  We would like to congratulate and thank everyone involved in the success of Startup Weekend Denver.  You rock!

A recap from Anca Foster:
“One of the biggest accomplishments of the second Denver Startup Weekend is doubling the number of attendees! The Denver entrepreneurial community is growing, and we’re excited to contribute to that. We will keep up the hard work and aim for an even bigger and better event in the fall during Global Entrepreneurship Week! Until the, see you around at Denver Open Coffee Club and other community events in the Denver / Boulder area.”
