Entrepreneurs Unplugged

Entrepreneurs Unplugged attracts star entrepreneurs who share their stories at CU-Boulder. Past guests have included Ted Turner, Sam Zell, Liberty Media's Greg Maffrei and Michael Zeisser, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, and many of the Front Range's leading serial entrepreneurs. In April 2008, Silicon Flatirons launched Entrepreneurs Unplugged, a meeting place that provides faculty, students and community members the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship through the experiences of a successful local entrepreneur. Each Entrepreneurs Unplugged meeting features food, drink and - most importantly - an experienced entrepreneur who shares his/her start-up experiences. The program offers students and faculty an opportunity to learn how a successful start up is created, as well as the chance to ask direct questions to the guest entrepreneur and network with members of the local entrepreneurial community.
