Are you attending Boulder Startup Week events this year with the hopes of being more involved and developing a deeper understanding of the content being presented from speakers?
Welcome to the Creative Track, a new track added in 2019, to shift from passively listening to actively participating in the content being presented. Our goal is to engage and ignite your creativity as you work “hands on” in your learning. Our track captain, Paula Kehoe, sought out creative community leaders and requested that events engage audience members in some way. As a result, here is the lineup.
CMCI Studios at CU, Lisa Leslie Henderson and Michelle Auerbach

The Future is all Science Fiction: Designing Communities and Organizations for Change The four-step process starts with future design, moves through the pleasures and dangers of what we have not yet seen, finding the points where we can have the most influence and be the most resilient, and then grow the community that can get you there.
