We are so excited to welcome Name.com and the Bearglecorn as returning sponsors for BSW17!
The Bearglecorn is the Name.com mascot, and you’ll find this bear, eagle, unicorn hybrid wherever there’s someone from Name.com – which should be fairly often since the Denver-based domain registrar is the Community track Sponsor for Boulder Startup Week. As Jared Ewy, Name.com’s Senior Correspondent says, with over 200 events all over Boulder, you will need a Bearglecorn to protect you on your journey.
“It is a truly magical creature,” explains Ewy. “So a perfect match for Boulder Startup Week’s near mythic proportions.”
And maybe it is magic. Since being founded in an apartment off of Denver’s Platte River in 2003, Name.com has grown into a full-service online presence company. They offer websites, hosting, web security, and they specialize in finding you the right name for your personal and business brand.
“It wasn’t long ago when getting a website was a frustrating ordeal,” says Ewy. “Now you can showcase your own brand in mere minutes with one of our quick one-page websites.”
Name.com has been a sponsor of Boulder Startup Week for three years. “You take over 100 events with people so smart they could levitate you with their brain, throw in free tacos and spring weather, and it’s one of the best weeks of the year,” says Ewy.
It won’t be hard to find someone from Name.com at Boulder Startup Week, but here are their featured events where you can be 100% sure to spot a Namer:
