Welcome to Boulder! We commend you on your bravery to uproot your existence and plant yourself in the beautiful state of Colorado. We understand that being new isn’t always easy, that’s why we’re introducing you to Boulder Startup Week, five action-packed days that celebrate Boulder’s vibrant startup community. We’re 8 years in the making (can you believe it!?) and have over 200 events that are free and open to the community.
Throughout the week we will have five events in the New to Boulder track that focus on helping you assimilate yourself into the lovable little bubble that is Boulder. Also make sure to check out the Community track!
New to Boulder Events:

From there we will parse you out by restaurant, pair you with a resident, and send you off into the night to enjoy Boulder’s culinary scene.
Tech Friends Happy Hour Wednesday, May 17th 4:30 pm: Meet us at Techstars’ office to grab a beer, and chat with others about passion projects, your toughest problem, or just ponder if we are a startup town with a craft beer addiction or a craft beer town with a startup addiction?!?
