Creating a commercial during the Denver Open Media class.

Our entrepreneurship program kicked off 2015 with a bang!  We hosted a fantastic event with Denver Open Media where several businesses got to film and edit their own commercials.  The event was a hit and we’re looking at scheduling another one, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, however, we have some fantastic events coming up if you’re looking to start a business, or need help with a business you already run.  Check out the details below…

Speed Mentoring

Saturday, February 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Get free business help by spending 15 minutes sessions with experts who can help you with different parts of your business.  Topics include marketing and advertising, finance and accounting, website and logo design, and legal questions.

This event is free to participate in, but there will be a bit of prep work to complete before you come to the event.  Register here.

Fashion Design Center Tour

Saturday, March 7 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

If you make your own jewelry, craft doll clothes, sew hats, or anything else fashion related, join us for a tour of Denver’s Fashion Design Center.  You’ll meet with local designers and have the opportunity to ask them questions about their designs and businesses.

This event is free to attend, but you must register here.
