Boulder Startup Week is jam-packed with activities, so it’s important to have a place to retreat to and recharge. The place to do so is Basecamp at Galvanize.
Open daily 8am to 5pm, stop by Basecamp to take a break, grab a free Boulder Startup Week T-Shirt (while supplies last) and learn something new!
With over 1,000 community members coming through each day, Basecamp coordinator, Scott Cohnstrenger has set out to create an atmosphere of events and activities at Basecamp, which he hopes will “capture and amplify the highly collaborative and give first mentality, of the Boulder Startup Community.”
New this year, each day Basecamp will have a unique theme for the community to explore. Community members will have the opportunity to dive into the daily topic crowdsourcing innovative ideas on the walls and taking part in intimate workshops and talks.
- Monday (5/14): The Art of Starting
- Tuesday (5/15): Community Impact
- Wednesday (5/16): Datatizing Our World
- Thursday (5/17): Building Culture
- Friday (5/18): Mastering the Pivot
Highlights at Basecamp include:
The inaugural Basecamp Spotlight Series which will feature a variety of short (15-20 min) talks (followed by 10 min Q&A) throughout each day. Stop in between your other events to meet up with community members and listen in on valuable insights and advice.
The Studio Arts Boulder Clay Lab where you can try the potter’s wheel or mold clay by hand. It’s a great way to clear your head and exhale between sessions!
