Startup Health: Tools to Handle Your Stress and That of Your Team (Room: Onyx)
Limited Capacity seats available

It can be tough enough to manage your own stress, but how can you as a founder, leader, or manager help the members of your team handle their feelings of stress, burnout, or disengagement? A stressed team or organization can negatively impact work and productivity, and as a startup we cannot afford to lose our productivity.

So how can you keep a healthy state of mind for the team, and thus your organization's productivity?

While dealing with stress, leadership, and management is an ancient challenge, some of the latest discoveries in neuroscience shed new light on both the older wisdom traditions and the latest coaching approaches. You will learn among other things to do a mental "SCARF" audit, to quickly try and get to the heart of the underlying concerns behind the actual conflicts.

In this Startup Health session listen, learn and ask questions as you gather some tips, tricks, and tools to keeping stress levels manageable then join our follow-on Startup Health session “Startup Stress, Identifying and Handling Your Team’s Secret Triggers” later in the week.

Usted puede ser lo suficientemente fuerte como para controlar su propio estrés, pero ¿cómo puede usted, como fundador, líder o gerente, ayudar a los miembros de su equipo a manejar el estrés de ellos, agotamiento o falta de compromiso? Un equipo u organización estresada puede afectar negativamente el trabajo y la productividad, y como emprendedores no podemos permitirnos perder el pulso de nuestra productividad. ¿Cómo puede mantener el estado de ánimo saludable de su equipo y, por lo tanto, la productividad de su organización? En esta sesión de Startup Health, escuchará, aprenderá y podrá hacer preguntas mientras aprende consejos, trucos y herramientas para mantener los niveles de estrés bajo control, luego podrá asistir a nuestra siguiente sesión: "Startup Stress" para poder llevar una relación mas abierta y saludable con su equipo de trabajo.

Smashing the Stigma: Realizing the Benefits of Diversity in Your Startup.
Limited Capacity seats available

In this digital age of technology, our world has become much smaller. The ubiquity of smartphones and other smart devices makes it possible to interact with customers, vendors, and employees on the other side of the world any time of day or night. We are seeing a global economy evolve with digital business, and today most companies and startups operate within a diverse marketplace. Chances are that even if you are doing business with local customers and vendors the demographics in your neighborhood are also just as diverse as the global economy.

This is why it is more important than ever before that we begin smashing the stigma around diversity and inclusivity, and learn to build a diverse staff for our businesses. Recruiting and retaining a diverse, inclusive group of employees lets your company reflect the world around you, and makes your team better able to develop fresh ideas to meet the needs of the whole marketplace.

Ask yourself this question: When you think about diversity and inclusivity, what springs to mind? Then come and join this panel and conversation to hear why thinking differently about diversity and inclusivity is a good thing for you, your startup, and the community around you.

En esta era digital de la tecnología, nuestro mundo se ha vuelto mucho más pequeño. La ubicuidad de los teléfonos inteligentes y otros dispositivos inteligentes hace posible interactuar con clientes, proveedores y empleados del otro lado del mundo a cualquier hora del día o de la noche. Estamos viendo una evolución de la economía mundial con los negocios digitales, y hoy en día la mayoría de las empresas nuevas y consolidadas operan dentro de un mercado diverso. Lo más probable es que incluso si está haciendo negocios con clientes locales y proveedores, la demografía de su vecindario también es tan diversa como la economía global.

Por eso es más importante que nunca que comencemos a romper el estigma en torno a la diversidad y la inclusión, y aprender a formar un personal diverso para nuestros negocios. Reclutar y retener a un grupo diverso e inclusivo de empleados le permite a su empresa reflejar el mundo que lo rodea y hace que su equipo pueda desarrollar nuevas ideas para satisfacer las necesidades de todo el mercado.

Hágase esta pregunta: cuándo piensa Ud. en la diversidad y la inclusión, ¿qué le viene a la mente? Únase a este panel y a la conversación para aprender por qué pensar de manera diferente acerca de la diversidad y la inclusión es algo bueno para usted, su empresa y la comunidad que lo rodea.

IoT Primer: On the Edge - What Is It, and Is It For Me or My Startup? (Room: The Quarry)
Limited Capacity filling up

One of the hottest things in technology today is the Internet of Things (IoT).  What is IoT, and how does it apply to you and your startup? A term first known only by developers and engineers, it seems today everyone is talking about it, but what does it actually mean? The answer varies depending on where you look and who you ask.

International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates there will be 30 billion connected “things” by 2020, and IoT is fundamentally changing how value is created. It has never been more important to understand IoT,  edge computing, smart cities, the intelligent sidewalk, and what it all means for your organization.

Come along to this session, join the conversation and learn from some of our local industry technologists, thought leaders, and business leaders who are on the edge of this wave of innovation.

Una de las cosas más interesantes en la tecnología actual es Internet of Things (IoT). & nbsp; ¿Qué es IoT y cómo le ayudaría a usted y a su empresa? Un término conocido por primera vez solo por los programadores e ingenieros, parece que hoy todos hablan de ello, pero ¿qué significa realmente? La respuesta varía según como lo mire y a quién le pregunte.

La International Data Corporation (IDC) estima que habrá 30 mil millones de "cosas" conectadas para el año 2020, e IoT está cambiando fundamentalmente cómo se genera el valor de estas “cosas”. Nunca ha sido más importante entender lo que es y hace IoT, la informática de última generación, las ciudades inteligentes y lo que todo esto significa para su organización.

Venga a este panel, únase a la conversación y aprenda de algunos de nuestros especialistas en tecnologia de la industria local, líderes de opinión y líderes empresariales que están en la cresta de esta ola de innovación.

Mentor Talk: Judith Nowlin - Giving Birth to a Startup
Limited Capacity seats available

Judith Nowlin, one of BizWest Media’s Boulder Valley 40 Under Forty class of 2017 Honorees, is an entrepreneur and mobile technology innovator, an avid community supporter, mentor, and mother of three. Judith created iBirth™, a mobile application born out of ten years of service in maternity care as a boots-on-the-ground birth practitioner. Judith’s original vision has grown from a single concept launched in December of 2009 into what has become the larger approach of providing software-as-a-service for health organizations all around the nation. She has built a growing organization that partners with large health systems, hospitals, OB GYN practices, and birth centers to deliver branded and customizable digital learning ecosystems aimed at improving maternal healthcare outcomes for mothers and babies via patient education and engagement. In late-June 2018, iBirth was acquired by Washington, DC based Babyscripts, Inc., the leading virtual care platform for managing obstetrics.

Judith takes great interest in giving back to the community and is a proud member of The Women’s Council at the CU Boulder LEEDS School of Business, offering mentorship to budding female business school students. Judith has also been awarded a seat in the Elementary Instructional Technology Advisory Committee of the St. Vrain Valley School District. This group of parents, teachers and staff representatives make policy recommendations about the allocation of technology in our community classrooms.

Come sit, listen, laugh, have a fun-filled conversation with Judith, and share in some of her experiences and challenges in “Giving Birth to a Startup”. Judith Nowlin, una de las empresarias premiadas en el BizWest Media en Boulder Valley 40 Under Forty class of 2017 Honorees, es una emprendedora e innovadora en tecnología móvil, una ávida defensora de la comunidad, mentora y madre de tres niños. Judith creó iBirth ™, una aplicación móvil que nació de sus diez años de servicio en la atención de la maternidad como profesional en el área de partos, con vasta experiencia en el terreno.

Discover YOUR Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (Room: The Quarry)
Limited Capacity seats available

What exactly is a startup ecosystem?

A startup ecosystem is formed by people, startups in various stages, and various types of organizations in a location with each contributing through interactions as a dynamic and complex system to cultivate new startup opportunities.

Startup ecosystems are generally defined by these network of interactions among people, community, organizations, and their environment. They come in many types, but are usually better known as startup ecosystems of specific cities or online communities.

Come along to this Smart City, "smarter. together." session and meet a few of the organizations working together in and around Longmont to help evolve our entrepreneurial ecosystem, build and foster a Colorado regional network of resources, and create a recognition alongside our sister communities as an entrepreneurial ecosystem startups want to start-up in. ¿Qué es exactamente un ecosistema de empresas emergentes?

Un ecosistema de empresas emergentes está formado por empresarios en diversas etapas de su carrera y varios tipos de organizaciones en una específica ubicación, cada una de las cuales contribuye a través de interacciones como un sistema dinámico y complejo para cultivar nuevas oportunidades de inicio para empresas y empresarios.

Los ecosistemas de empresas generalmente se definen por esta red de interacciones entre las personas, la comunidad, las organizaciones y su entorno. Vienen en muchos tipos, pero generalmente son mejor conocidos como ecosistemas de empresas de ciudades específicas o comunidades en línea. Venga a esta sesión de Smart City, "Inteligencia/Juntos" y conozca a algunas de las organizaciones que trabajan juntas en Longmont y sus alrededores para ayudar a desarrollar nuestro ecosistema empresarial y de emprendedor, construir y fomentar una red regional de recursos de Colorado, y crear un reconocimiento junto a nuestras comunidades hermanas como un ecosistema de empresas que las nuevas empresas quieren usar y poner en marcha.

Crafting Your 5-Minute Capital Pitch
Limited Capacity seats available

Most investors and capital have prerequisites to investment that are pretty well known but often not addressed effectively up front. Come along to this session listen, learn, and hear the tips, tricks, and tools for taking your capital pitch down to 5 minutes and by doing so keeping your messaging simple, focused, and straightforward.

This approach has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for dozens of entrepreneurs who have done the work to follow the simple guidelines because it takes what was a very intimidating and jargon-filled process and turns it into a simple, logical, straight forward explanation of the opportunity. This raises the entrepreneur's confidence and comfort, which can increase their chances of gaining that trust and investment.

When it comes to raising investment capital we never know if or when a conversation could lead to a check. For this reason entrepreneurs must learn to craft an effective narrative that communicates the company's value, no matter the setting.


Los fundadores de una empresa conocen la importancia de dar una buena primera impresión. En diferentes etapas, los empresarios deben vender sus datos, productos o servicios a clientes e inversionistas potenciales. Aquí es donde muchos de nosotros no lo hacemos bien. Cuando se trata de recaudar capital de inversión, nunca sabemos si una conversación puede llevarnos a obtener los fondos o capital que deseamos. Por esta razón, los empresarios deben aprender a elaborar una narrativa efectiva que comunique el valor de la empresa, sin importar el entorno.

Venga a esta sesión escuche, aprenda y aplique los consejos, trucos y herramientas para su empresa y al hacerlo, manteniendo un mensaje simple, enfocado y directo.

Startup Health: Reframing: The power to flip the universe from where you sit.
Limited Capacity seats available

It is easy to think that “work” and “stress” go hand in hand. After all if it were a walk in the park, it probably would not be called work. There is however a point at which the stress of work can actually become detrimental to one’s health. In fact, studies have shown that two in every five employees say that stress at work has affected their health by causing them to increase unhealthy habits, eat poorly, and forego exercise.

Stress is Contagious, But So Is Wellbeing.

In this Startup Health session we take lessons learned from effective personal stress management starting with identifying your sources of stress and developing strategies to manage them. From there we take our focus to the organizational level to identify team stress sources and mitigation strategies.

Reframing may be the most powerful "lifehack" we know of, seemingly common, even conventional wisdom, but truly our most amazing choice. Come see how we take this cliche idea and turn it into a superpower, one percent or degree at a time.

In this workshop, we will explore various methods of reframing, from opposition, to mitigation, to compassion, to humor, and more, giving you various tools to help get you "unstuck" from whatever hell or situation you find yourself or those around you in.

Getting a car unstuck from the snow or mud usually is a matter of the tiniest momentum, and perhaps a turn of the wheel or direction to ease the exit. The mind is far more pliable, powerful and flexible than we think, and the heart can shift from despair to joy, from tears to laughter in a moment.

Learning to do this as a "go to" response literally transforms your life and that of those around you. Es fácil pensar que el "trabajo" y el "estrés" van de la mano. Después de todo, si trabajar fueese como dar una caminata en el parque, probablemente no se llamaría trabajo. Sin embargo, hay un punto en el que el estrés del trabajo puede llegar a ser perjudicial para la salud. De hecho, los estudios han demostrado que dos de cada cinco empleados dicen que el estrés en el trabajo ha afectado su salud al hacer que aumenten los hábitos poco saludables, como el comer mal y dejar de hacer ejercicio.

El estrés es contagioso, pero también lo es el bienestar.

En esta sesión de Startup Health, tomaremos las lecciones aprendidas del manejo efectivo del estrés personal, comenzando con la identificación de las fuentes de estrés y desarrollando estrategias para manejarlas. A partir de ahí llevamos nuestro enfoque al nivel empresarial para identificar las fuentes de estrés a nivel de equipo y las estrategias para apaciguarlo.

IP Overview: Patents, Trademarks, Copyright, Trade Secrets, and Licensing
Limited Capacity filling up

There are only a handful of situations where replication of your art, your work, your brand is considered an act of flattery. For the majority of startups this certainly is not the case, and the act of duplication of your works can be a serious problem if not devastating, to your business.

So, what is intellectual property, and should your startup care about it?

Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names and images used in commerce. Intellectual property is divided into two categories: Industrial Property, and Copyright.

Sounds perfectly clear, right? If it doesn’t, have no fear you are not alone!

Come along to this session for a conversation with subject matter experts on the topic of Intellectual Property. The conversation will be engaging, thought provoking, and filled with real-life scenarios of how and when Intellectual Property done right can improve the position of your venture, and the impacts to your business when done wrong or not at all. Hay algunas situaciones en las que el uso de su arte, su trabajo o su marca se puede considerar un acto de falsa admiración. Para la mayoría de empresarios, este no es el caso, y el acto de duplicar sus trabajos puede ser un problema serio si no devastador para su negocio. Entonces, ¿qué significa propiedad intelectual? ¿le interesa aprender más de esto?

La propiedad intelectual se refiere a creaciones, inventos, obras literarias o artísticas, y símbolos, nombres e imágenes utilizados en el comercio. La propiedad intelectual se divide en dos categorías: Propiedad Industrial y Copyright.
Suena perfectamente claro, ¿verdad? Si no lo es, ¡no tema que no es el único en no entenderlo!

Participe en esta sesión para conversar con expertos en el tema de la Propiedad Intelectual. La conversación será interesante, estimulante y llena de escenarios de la vida real sobre cómo y cuándo la Propiedad Intelectual bien empleada puede mejorar la posición de su empresa, y los impactos en su negocio cuando se emplea mal o no se emplea en lo absoluto.

This is called "Edge Computing," where data gets processed as close to the source as possible - the edge of the network - instead of it being uploaded and processed in massive, centralized data-storage systems.

So what does that mean for startups, what are some of the practical applications of edge computing?

Come along to this session and learn about some real world practical applications of IoT and edge computing using Python and  Xilinx Open Source Technology, you will hopefully walk away with an understanding, if you do not have one already, that as the Internet of Things continues to evolve, the opportunity of edge computing innovations continues to rise.

In this session you will obtain Python tips and tricks to use with the Xilinx Open Source Technology PYNQ, then continue your learning into the practical workshop session in the afternoon and get some hands on exposure to working with the Xilinx Open Source Technology: "Workshop: Fast Start with Xilinx Open-Source Solutions -XUP PYNQ"

Para algunos, la computación en la nube es cosa del pasado. Forester Research, advierte que el inminente diluvio de sensores hace que grandes partes de la computación en la nube sean poco realistas. En lugar de eso, es cada vez más eficiente y práctico procesar los datos cuando y en el lugar dónde se recolectan, la recopilación de datos habilitada por Internet of Things Smart Devices: su teléfono inteligente, una señal de tráfico inteligente, un Fit-bit u otro dispositivo digital p dispositivo habilitado y en redes adecuadas.

Esto se llama "Computación Edge", donde los datos se procesan lo más cerca posible de la fuente en lugar de cargarse y procesarse en sistemas de almacenamiento de datos masivos y centralizados.
Entonces, ¿qué significa eso para las empresas y empresarios? ¿cuáles son algunas de las aplicaciones prácticas de este tipo de informática?

Participe en esta sesión y aprenda sobre algunas las aplicaciones prácticas del mundo real de la IoT y la informática de punta en diferentes escenarios. Creemos que al finalizar esta presentación Ud. se ira a casa entendiendo los principales conceptos, si aún no lo hace. A medida que Internet of Things continúa evolucionando, la oportunidad de innovación en el campo de la informática van en aumento.

Exit Strategy? What's Yours?
Limited Capacity filling up

As an owner or a founder of a company or business when you meet with financial advisors, potential investors, or future employees at some point in time they are going to ask you about your exit strategy. If you are like most entrepreneurs, you probably do not realize that developing your exit strategy is one of the most important steps you will ever take. By not having the right exit strategy in place today, you are risking both the financial wealth of your venture and that of you own personal financial security.

So, let’s ask you - What's the exit strategy for the company you founded?

Come to this session to understand why it’s important to define your exit strategy at the beginning of your startup, listen, and learn about some of the many different types of exit strategies and their implications, ask questions and get insight into which strategy might maximize your wealth whether that be selling to a strategic partner, a financial buyer, going IPO, offering an ICO, or ESOP. Como propietario o fundador de una empresa cuando se reúna con asesores financieros, posibles inversionistas o futuros empleados, en algún momento le preguntarán sobre su “estrategia de salida”. Si usted es como la mayoría de los empresarios, probablemente no se dé cuenta de que desarrollar una estrategia de salida es uno de los pasos más importantes por emprender. Al no tener una estrategia de salida correcta y en vigencia, está arriesgando tanto la riqueza financiera de su empresa como la de su seguridad financiera personal. Entonces, le preguntamos: ¿Cuál es la estrategia de salida para la empresa que fundó?

Venga a esta sesión para entender por qué es importante definir su estrategia de salida al comienzo de su empresa, escuchar y aprender algunos de los diferentes tipos de estrategias de salida y sus implicaciones. Haga preguntas y obtenga información sobre qué estrategia puede maximizar su riqueza, ya sea vendiéndola a un socio estratégico, a un comprador financiero, a una OPI en marcha u ofreciendo un ICO o ESOP.

Women in Team Leadership Roles is Good for Business
Limited Capacity seats available

In today’s global marketplace where diverse backgrounds, skills, and experience are critical for strategic and operational decisions, having more women involved at the highest levels of business management and organizational governance is associated with more profitable and well-managed organizations, our startups should be no different.

Even though the percentage of women in the talent pipeline has steadily increased over the last three decades there are still large gender gaps from entry-level right through to top executive positions. Research from the Boardlist shows that in Tech, women hold only 30% of the entry-level roles and only approximately 7% of private tech company boards are made up of women.

Come and join this conversation and hear some of reasons why having women in your organization's leadership roles will benefit your entire organization, including the benefits of greater diversity in thought processes, organizational and management trust, growing collaborative cultures, and mentoring and team development. En el mercado global actual, donde los antecedentes, las habilidades y la experiencia son fundamentales para las decisiones estratégicas y operativas, contar con más mujeres participando en los más altos niveles de gestión empresarial y gobierno organizacional se asocia con organizaciones más rentables y mejor administradas.

Being a leader in a startup can be a lonely and solitary role and we often times fall to thoughts of a lack of support, cooperation, and collaboration from our organization. More often than not, though, these thoughts are not the fault of our team's or organization's unwillingness to lend a hand, but the fact that most people simply don’t, or won’t, ask for help.

Why? A common barrier is that we are often times blind to the fact that we need help. Another barrier is that we often times fear asking for help as it is interpreted as a sign of weakness, ignorance, or failure. Also, a strong culture of self-reliance is one of our core barriers, an admirable trait that can cause a significant failure in your startup.

Come and enjoy conversation with Chris Salter, a seasoned entrepreneur, CEO of Music Wizard, Board Member for Startup Longmont, mentor, and community thought leader. Chris teaches and mentors in the Longmont community and further afield on inception and early stage entrepreneurial tools and thinking.

Throughout LSW’18 Chris will be working with a number of our community thought leaders to provide entrepreneurial sessions across a variety of topics under the Founder Track. In this session, he will be discussion when you should ask for help, whom you should ask for help, how you should ask for help, and most importantly how to get out of our own way and accept help. Ser líder en una empresa puede ser un rol solitario y muchas veces sentimos una falta de apoyo, cooperación y colaboración de nuestra propia organización. La mayoría de las veces, sin embargo, estos pensamientos no son culpa de la falta de voluntad de nuestro equipo u organización para darnos una mano, sino del hecho de que la mayoría de nosotros y de las personas en general simplemente no solicitan ayuda como para recibirla, y no lo harán.

¿Por qué? Una barrera común es que muchas veces no vemos que necesitamos ayuda. Otra barrera es que muchas veces tememos pedir ayuda, ya que se interpreta como un signo de debilidad, ignorancia o fracaso. Además, una fuerte cultura de autosuficiencia es una de nuestras principales barreras, un rasgo admirable que puede causar un fracaso significativo en su empresa.

Venga, participe y disfrute de una conversación con Chris Salter, un experimentado empresario, CEO de Music Asistente, miembro de la Junta de Directorio de Startup Longmont, mentor y líder del pensamiento comunitario. Chris da charlas y es mentor en Longmont enseñando estrategias de inicio, dando herramientas y propalando un pensamiento emprendedor de la etapa inicial. A lo largo de LSW'18, Chris trabajará con varios de nuestros líderes comunitarios para ofrecer sesiones de emprendimiento en una variedad de temas bajo el Founder Track. En esta sesión, se discutirá cuándo debe pedir ayuda, a quién debe pedir ayuda, cómo debe pedir ayuda y lo más importante, cómo dar un paso al costado y aceptar ayuda.

Introducing Design to a Dev Culture (Room: The Quarry)
Limited Capacity seats available

Bringing the design process to a traditionally developer-led organization can be a huge challenge. Established processes and cultures affect how broadly design can be applied, how user feedback is incorporated, and how successful a design effort will ultimately be.

Chris Alvarez recently tackled this challenge in his own organization and will be sharing his approach as well as the interactive presentation used to introduce design to his own engineering team.

Llevar el proceso de diseño a una organización tradicionalmente dirigida por diseñadores (developers) puede ser un gran desafío. Los procesos y culturas establecidos afectan la forma en que se puede aplicar el diseño, cómo se incorporan los comentarios de los usuarios y cuán exitoso será finalmente un esfuerzo de diseño.

Chris Alvarez recientemente abordó este desafío en su propia organización y compartirá su enfoque, así como la presentación interactiva utilizada para dar a conocer el diseño a su propio equipo de ingeniería.

Innovation Mindset for Startups
Limited Capacity seats available

Organizations with goals of rapid growth need to combine an innovative mindset with enterprise-level focus and resources. When you think about the typical startup, what words come to mind? "Lean"? "Innovative"? "Trendy"? "Agile"?

What about a classic Fortune 500 enterprise, or a municipality that has been around for decades or centuries even. Odds, are the words that come to mind invoke a completely different set of words - maybe "bureaucratic," "political", "too hierarchical", "stifled", "outdated" and perhaps "difficult".

Despite their intrinsic differences, one thing is certain: The pace of change across industry is so fast and volatile that organizations of all sizes risk their very survival unless they become more disruptive and innovation.

Come along to this conversation and understand why and how organizations, need to, and can develop cultures of open collaboration, and most importantly, innovation - developing an innovation mindset for startups is, hyper co-innovation. Las organizaciones con objetivos de crecimiento rápido deben combinar una mentalidad innovadora con enfoque y recursos de nivel empresarial. Cuando piensas en una empresa startup típica, ¿qué palabras le vienen a la mente? "Apoyo"? "Innovacion"? "Moda"? "Ágilidad"?

¿Qué podríamos decir de una empresa clásica Fortune 500, o un municipio que ha existido durante décadas o incluso siglos. Probablemente, las palabras que vienen a su mente representan un conjunto completamente diferente de palabras, tal vez "burocrático", "político", "demasiado jerárquico", "sofocado", "desactualizado" y quizás "difícil".

A pesar de sus diferencias intrínsecas, una cosa es cierta: el ritmo del cambio en la industria es tan rápido y volátil que las organizaciones de todos los tamaños arriesgan su propia supervivencia a menos que se vuelvan más disruptivas e innovadoras.

Participar en esta conversación y comprender por qué y cómo las organizaciones necesitan y pueden desarrollar culturas de colaboración abierta, y lo más importante: innovar, desarrollar una mentalidad de innovación para las empresas startups es algo super innovador!

How to Facilitate SWOT Analysis at the Drop of a Hat
Limited Capacity seats available

Strengths
Weaknesses
Opportunities
Threats

SWOT analysis is a tool, not necessarily an end, that helps you both identify and mitigate your biggest challenges and leverage your biggest assets. It can be used for any kind of project or opportunity, and whether you do it or not, those now unidentified threats and weaknesses are still part of the challenge.

Awareness allows you to mitigate and control, which leads to success. Without awareness, your success addressing the issues is mostly dumb luck or instinct. The most important aspect of learning to do a SWOT analysis is that situations change, and you must often course correct with a new updated analysis. This becomes a common tool for all members of your team to begin to approach problems and analysis in a coherent consistent way, with or without the leadership present at any given moment.

Break Through the Clutter With a Nuclear Phrase (SNAP)
Limited Capacity seats available

Shorter and shorter attention spans challenge us to learn to speak more powerfully, concisely, and effectively. Join this workshop and learn how to craft a very powerful request in in the form of a "nuclear phase" for the most impact with the least number of words.

Most of us believe we know how to communicate and talk about our business, but the challenge is we are often "lost in the trees" of our business. Even if the person we are talking to understands our business, unless we paint them a picture or give them a powerful succinct image, they cannot convey our business to other people dramatically limiting the impact and networking utility of our "SNAP".

Come learn to boil your mission and message down to essentials and make powerful life changing requests that get results and allow your contacts to enroll their contacts as well.

Open Data: From Publishing City Data to Solving Problems
Limited Capacity seats available

The last few years has seen a steady growth in appetite for open data. Much like open source software, open data tends to have a handful of faithful advocates and, despite new datasets becoming available daily, it can sometimes feel like a challenge just breaking into this global, yet relatively niche community.

What is open data?

In short, open data is information which is free to use, share, and build upon. Typically, government and big business powers the open data market by providing non-personal data in a variety of formats (such as CSV). This information can then be used by creators in a number of ways, from simply harnessing it for knowledge to performing calculations and manipulations to essentially make something totally new.

Come join this session as we discuss what open data actually is, learn how smarter cities are looking to innovators, data scientists, and entrepreneurs for help, and explore some simple ways you can get involved in using open data from developing ideas and apps to contributing back to the community knowledge pool. Los últimos años han visto un crecimiento constante en el área de la compartición de datos abiertos. Al igual que el software de código abierto, los datos abiertos tienden a tener un grupo de defensores fieles y a pesar de que los nuevos conjuntos de datos estén disponibles a diario, a veces puede parecer un desafío ingresar a esta comunidad global.

¿Qué son los datos abiertos?
En resumen, los datos abiertos son información que se puede utilizar, compartir y construir de manera libre y gratuita. Normalmente, el gobierno y las grandes empresas potencian el mercado de datos abiertos al proporcionar datos no personales en una variedad de formatos (como CSV). Esta información puede ser utilizada por los diseñadores de varias maneras, desde simplemente aprovechar el conocimiento hasta realizar cálculos para esencialmente hacer algo totalmente nuevo. Únase a esta sesión mientras discutimos qué realmente son los datos abiertos, aprenda más de cómo las ciudades más inteligentes buscan ayuda de innovadores, científicos de datos y empresarios. Finalmente, explore algunas formas sencillas en las que puede participar en el uso de datos abiertos desde el desarrollo de ideas y aplicaciones hasta contribuir al conjunto de conocimientos de la comunidad.

Workshop: Brand - An inside Job (Learn to Communicate Like a Pro)
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Excitement and enthusiasm is just not enough. One of the worst feelings in the world is seeing a glazed-over look from someone you are speaking to about your business and receiving the comment…”I don’t understand"…like from Josh in the movie “Big.”

You deserve to know the secret to having your business understood so clearly that gaining funding or new customers is simpler. This does NOT happen by accident and it is NOT a clever name or cool logo. Actually, it is comes from your brand DNA. It must be solidly defined so you or you team can create well-understood
names, tag-lines, logo and marketing copy for the brand and its products faster and easier. Companies pay small fortunes to agencies to develop the materials to have your business solution understood in seconds. This proven brand development process has been decoded and developed into steps to follow.

BrandU® is that highly effective trusted process used by 30,000+ entrepreneurs worldwide. There’s a specific framework that’s aligned to how a human mind make a decision. Whatever decision you want them to make. Learn to communicate like a pro.

Tener entusiasmo por algo no es suficiente. Uno de los peores sentimientos en el
mundo es ver una mirada confundida de alguien con quien se está hablando sobre su negocio y recibir el comentario ... "No entiendo" ... como de Josh en la película "Quisiera Ser Grande". Merece la pena saber el secreto para que su empresa sea comprendida tan claramente que sea fácil obtener financiamiento o nuevos clientes. Esto NO sucede por accidente.
En realidad, todo proviene del ADN de su empresa.
Debe estar sólidamente definido para que usted o su equipo puedan crear nombres, líneas de identificación, logotipos y una copia de marketing bien entendidos para la marca. Las empresas pagan pequeñas fortunas a las agencias para que desarrollen materiales y puedan comprender la solución comercial de una empresa en cuestión de segundos. Este proceso comprobado de desarrollo de marca ha sido decodificado y desarrollado en pasos a seguir. BrandU® es ese proceso altamente confiable y de mayor confianza utilizado por más de 30,000 empresarios en todo el mundo. Hay un marco específico que está alineado con la forma en que la mente humana toma una decisión.
Cualquier decisión que usted quiera que tomen.

Limited Capacity seats available

It has been said that data is the new oil, but many have yet to tap into the vast amount of data we generate on a daily basis to unlock the hidden value within.

Natasha Pongonis is no stranger to data or unlocking the hidden value within. As co-founder and CEO of OYE! Business Intelligence, a data analytics solution, she has certainly been able to do just that by tapping into a vast amount of cultural conversation data to effectively track, segment, and monitor real-time online conversations among the fastest growing ethnic groups in the U.S.

Come and listen to Natasha tell her story, hear some of the challenges she overcame to achieve many community recognitions, build and lead a successful big data, data science, and business intelligence company, and don’t forget ask questions about her journey along the way. Se ha dicho que los datos, almacenamiento y distribución son el nuevo petróleo, pero muchos aún no han aprovechado la gran cantidad de datos que generamos a diario para descubrir el valor dentro de ellos.

Natasha Pongonis no es ajena al campo de los datos y su valor. Como co-fundadora y CEO de OYE! Business Intelligence, una empresa de solución de análisis de datos, sin duda ha sido capaz de trabajar con una gran cantidad de datos de interacción cultural para analizar, segmentar y monitorear abierta y efectivamente las conversaciones via internet entre los grupos étnicos de más rápido crecimiento en los Estados Unidos < br>

Keynote: Tom Higley - Cities, Wicked Problems & Startups that Matter
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

At the turn of the prior century fewer than 10% of the world's population lived in an urban area. Today, that number is at 50% and is projected to grow to 70%+ by mid century. This means that most of the people who experience the world's wicked problems – in health, water, food, energy, learning, infrastructure, transportation, security & privacy, waste and climate change – will experience them in cities. It also means that resources for addressing these problems will need to be found within cities and be focused on cities and their inhabitants. Startups have played a relatively insignificant role in these matters. Hold on tight, things are about to change.

*Available in English, Spanish and ASL.
*ASL Interpretation by Jessica Collins 

A fines del siglo pasado, menos del 10% de la población mundial vivía en un área urbana. Hoy en día, ese número está en el 50% y se prevé que crezca a más del 70% para mediados de siglo. Esto significa que la mayoría de las personas que experimentan los problemas del mundo -en salud, agua, alimentos, energía, educación, infraestructura, transporte, seguridad, privacidad, basura y cambio climático- los experimentarán en las ciudades. También significa que los recursos para abordar estos problemas deberán encontrarse dentro de las ciudades y enfocarse en las ciudades y sus habitantes. Las empresas startup han jugado un papel relativamente insignificante en estos asuntos. Las cosas están a punto de cambiar.

Colorado provides plenty of support for angel-round startups just setting out on their journey. There’s also ample support for those moving from a$10M Series A to the summit. But, in between, entrepreneurs face a nasty slope we call the Seed-Stage Gap. Here they find limited access to the three things they need to grow: TALENT, CAPITAL, and COMMUNITY.
 
The Growth Sherpas was formed by six local CEOs specifically to address this critical gap in Colorado’s innovation system. Part economic development initiative, part accelerator, and part VC, the Sherpas invest the Talent, find the capital, and create the community local entrepreneurs need to succeed.

Workshop: Fast Start With Xilinx AWS EC2 F1 Instances (Room: C1722)
Limited Capacity seats available

The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is now equipped with Vivado design software and Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs. These pre-configured EC2 F1 instances combine unprecedented performance and convenience in a scalable, 24/7, on-demand environment.

Wow, what does that mean? Well come along to this informative workshop and find out!

To get you started thinking about it, Amazon EC2 F1 is a compute instance with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) that you can program to create custom hardware accelerations for your application. F1 instances are easy to program and come with everything you need to develop, simulate, debug, and compile your hardware acceleration code, including an FPGA Developer AMI and Hardware Developer Kit (HDK). Once your FPGA design is complete, you can register it as an Amazon FPGA Image (AFI) and deploy it to your F1 instance in just a few clicks. You can reuse your AFIs as many times, and across as many F1 instances as you like.

Come join the Xilinx team as they introduce you to this innovation and walk you through some actual hands-on work. Using Python in a Jupyter notebook to take advantage of FPGAs for ML inferencing, without having to know FPGAs. Ask questions and learn the power these ECT F1’s can bring to your infrastructure architecture.

************************************************

Don't forget your laptop and Power Supply!

Mentor Talk: Whitedove Gannon - Balancing Life, Business, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship
Limited Capacity seats available

Whitedove Gannon, the “down-to-earth chick with the different name”, is the founder of StartUP Academy for Entrepreneurs, and owner of In the Books, LLC, and not your typical accountant.

Going beyond her zeal for re-inventing traditional bookkeeping and redefining what it means to be efficient, she is also a happily married entrepreneur with five kids! Over the past four years of growing an accounting and bookkeeping business, she has had the pleasure of leading other small businesses and entrepreneurs to stay ahead of the financial aspects of their business while creating an opportunity for them to run their business efficiently in a cloud-based environment.

With a strong desire to be unique and to express herself creatively, Whitedove is not your average accountant.  After spending almost 15 years as the co-owner with her husband of a mid-sized company in 2013 she started her own bookkeeping firm with a desire to re-invent traditional bookkeeping and redefine what it means to be efficient. With that goal in mind, Whitedove developed a new approach to working with clients – going beyond the "data-entry only" mentality for bookkeepers and focusing on resolving business efficiency while adding value and serving the day-to-day needs of business clients.

That's right where she wants to be: Balancing Life

Come and enjoy conversation and laugh with Whitedove as she recounts her entrepreneurial journey, and while doing so learn how she balances life, business, innovation and entrepreneurship, and her family! Whitedove Gannon es la fundadora de StartUP Academy for Entrepreneurs, y propietaria de In the Books, LLC. Ella no es una típica contadora.

Ha ido más allá de eso por reinventar la contabilidad tradicional y redefinir lo que significa ser eficiente. Ella también es una empresaria casada y con cinco hijos. Durante los últimos cuatro años de crecimiento de un negocio de contabilidad Whitedove ha tenido el placer de guiar a otras pequeñas empresas y emprendedores a mantenerse a la vanguardia de los aspectos financieros de sus negocios mientras les creaba una oportunidad para que administren sus negocios eficientemente.

Con un fuerte deseo de ser única y de expresarse creativamente, Whitedove no es una contadora promedio. & nbsp; Después de pasar casi 15 años como co-propietario con su esposo de una empresa mediana en el 2013 fundó su propia firma de libros contables con el deseo de reinventar la contabilidad tradicional y redefinir lo que significa ser eficiente. Con ese objetivo en mente, Whitedove desarrolló un nuevo enfoque para trabajar con clientes: ir más allá de la mentalidad de "solo entrar datos a la computadora" para los balances contables y en cambio también centrarse en resolver la eficiencia empresarial al tiempo que agrega valor y atiende las necesidades diarias de los clientes comerciales.

Es allí donde quiere estar: equilibrando aspectos de la vida

Venga y disfrute de una conversación amena con Whitedove, escuche el relato de su viaje como emprendedora, y cuando lo haga, Ud. aprendará cómo ella equilibra su vida, los negocios, la innovación y emprendimiento, y su familia!

Machine Learning for Startups (Room #C1722)
Limited Capacity seats available

Machine learning has become a popular buzzword in the tech community. An application of artificial intelligence technology, machine learning analyzes data in order to learn and in cases identify specific behaviors, patterns, and trends and then predict or replicate them in the future. Its uses range from healthcare and cybersecurity to travel and shopping, and today in combination with IoT is becoming a valuable tool in many Smart City initiatives.

Yet there is a misconception that to leverage machine learning you need to be a mathematical genius or have a degree in Artificial Intelligence. In reality, most machine-learning applications use well-understood, well-tested, off-the-shelf algorithms. For many developers, especially those at early stage startups, the real challenge lies in training the data. Overcoming this challenge takes insight, strategy, good product development, and good high-quality, labeled training data.

During this session you will get a hands on look at how simple it can be, learn the tricks, see some of the tools, and ask many questions to understand if you really need machine learning or not. El aprendizaje automático mecanizado se ha convertido en una palabra de moda popular en la comunidad tecnológica. Una aplicación de tecnología de inteligencia artificial, el aprendizaje automático analiza los datos para aprender y, en algunos casos, identifica conductas, patrones y tendencias específicas y luego los predice o replica en el futuro. Sus usos van desde la industria de la salud y seguridad cibernética hasta viajes y compras, y hoy en combinación con IoT se está convirtiendo en una herramienta valiosa en muchas iniciativas de desarrollo de Ciudades Inteligentes. Sin embargo, existe la idea errónea de que para aprovechar el aprendizaje automático debe ser un genio matemático o tener un título en Inteligencia Artificial. En realidad, la mayoría de las aplicaciones de aprendizaje automático utilizan algoritmos bien conocidos, bien probados y listos para usar. Para muchos diseñadores informaticos, especialmente aquellos en nuevas empresas en etapa inicial, el verdadero desafío radica en el entrenamiento de los datos. Superar este desafío requiere conocimiento, estrategia, buen desarrollo del producto y buenos datos de capacitación de alta calidad. Durante esta sesión verá usted lo simple que puede ser aprender los trucos, ver algunas de las herramientas, asi como hacer muchas preguntas para comprender si realmente necesita el aprendizaje automático o no.

Exploring Today's Skills Needs: What are the Talent Needs of Startups Today and in the Future? Reversed (Room: #C1722)
Limited Capacity seats available

Longmont Startup Week has a focus upon Smart Cities, as this movement has become very familiar in recent years, but how often do we think about the “Smart Skills” necessary to operate and maintain these cities, or the startups that will be created tomorrow or in the future in support of those Smart Cities.

If a smart city leverages "Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to enhance quality, performance, and interactivity of urban services and infrastructure to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government,” then what will be the skills required to run, maintain and inform those cities.

Come along and hear what skills smart cities are looking for, what startups of today and tomorrow are looking for, and join in on the conversation about what skills we should be focusing on for our educational resources.

In this session we will be taking a reversed approach, meaning our panel will be asking questions of the audience! Our panel consisting of Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs and our subject matter expert will be learning from you, our mentors, seasoned entrepreneurs, service providers, community mentors and subject matter experts.

The mechanics:

Let’s see who gets stumped first! Longmont Startup Week se enfoca en Smart Cities, ya que este movimiento se ha vuelto muy familiar en los últimos años, pero ¿con qué frecuencia pensamos en las "Smart Skills" necesarias para operar y mantener estas ciudades, o las empresas que se crearán? mañana o en el futuro en apoyo de esas ciudades inteligentes.

Si una ciudad inteligente aprovecha las "tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC) para mejorar la calidad, el rendimiento y la interactividad de los servicios urbanos y la infraestructura para reducir los costos y el consumo de recursos y para mejorar el contacto entre los ciudadanos y el gobierno" entonces, ¿cuáles serán las habilidades necesarias para administrar, mantener e informar a esas ciudades?
Participe y aprenda qué habilidades están buscando las ciudades inteligentes, qué nuevas empresas de hoy y de mañana estamos buscando nosotros, y participe en la conversación sobre las habilidades en las que deberíamos enfocar nuestros recursos educativos.

Cities Talking with Startups: A Collaborative Approach to Problem Solving (Room: Community Room B)
Limited Capacity seats available

Cities are a key to both our technological and sustainable future and a city putting a challenge on the table and inviting startups to help co-solve a problem makes for interesting startup opportunity.

During LSW’18 we have introduced you to entrepreneurial ecosystems, lab cities, cities as incubators, and the growing Smart City opportunities for startups. Let’s now have a conversation about how startups are working and collaborating with cities to co-solve some of our urban challenges. Together we can partner and innovate new partnership models, shared innovation and incubator spaces, deliver smaller real-world pilot initiatives and other approaches to fostering smart city projects that are truly meaningful.

It all starts with a conversation, working together cities and startups could make it easier for businesses to work with municipalities by running pilots before embarking on large-scale public-private partnerships. By engaging the private sector and startups in this conversational manner sparks innovation, rather than simply procuring off-the-shelf products and services.

So, come along and join this conversation between cities, the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, and startups already having collaborative conversations. Las ciudades son la clave de nuestro futuro tanto tecnológico como sostenible y una ciudad que pone un desafío sobre la mesa e invita a las empresas startups a ayudar a resolver ese problema, la convierte en interesante para una empresa. Durante LSW'18, le presentamos ecosistemas empresariales, ciudades de laboratorio, ciudades como “incubadoras”, y las crecientes oportunidades de Smart City para empresas. Tengamos ahora una conversación sobre cómo las empresas startups están funcionando y colaborando con las ciudades para resolver conjuntamente algunos de nuestros desafíos urbanos. Juntos podemos trabajar e innovar nuevos modelos de asociación, espacios de innovación compartidos, ofrecer iniciativas piloto para el mundo real y otros enfoques para fomentar proyectos de ciudades inteligentes que sean verdaderamente significativos. Todo comienza con una conversación, trabajando en conjunto, las ciudades y las empresas startup podrían facilitar que los negocios trabajen con los municipios ejecutando programas piloto antes de embarcarse en asociaciones público-privadas a gran escala. Al involucrar al sector privado y las nuevas empresas se genera innovación, en lugar de simplemente adquirir productos y servicios disponibles en el mercado. Entonces, venga y participe en a esta conversación entre ciudades, la Alianza de Ciudades Inteligentes de Colorado, y empresas startups que ya tienen en el presente conversaciones o planes de colaboración.

Finding Hidden Talent: Autistic Talent in the Workplace (Room: Community Room A)
Limited Capacity seats available

April was Autism Awareness Month and, while it's a good idea to remind people about awareness for autism, few need reminding. Given the significant number of individuals impacted by ASD (current diagnosis rates are up nearly 300% and expected to increase by 1,292% by 2020 - according to the CDC), one would think we could  do a much better job of helping autistic individuals gain employment. The sad truth, though, is we don't. People with autism are untapped reservoir of talent, and adults with autism bring special talents to the workplace. Join this panel conversation and discover why thinking differently about autism in the workplace is something that you should embrace for your creative and innovative pursuits.

Abril fue el Mes de Concientización sobre el Autismo y, si bien es una buena idea recordarle a las personas tomar conciencia del autismo, pocos necesitaron recordarlo. Dado el número significativo de individuos afectados por autismo (las tasas de diagnóstico actuales han aumentado casi un 300% y se espera que aumenten en un 1,292% para el 2020, según la CDC), uno pensaría que podríamos & nbsp; hacer un trabajo mucho mejor ayudando a las personas autistas obtener empleo. La triste verdad, sin embargo, es que no lo hacemos. Las personas con autismo son reservorios de talento sin explotar, y los adultos con autismo aportan talentos especiales en sus respectivos trabajos. Únase a esta presentación enfocada en conversación y descubra por qué pensar de manera diferente acerca del autismo en el campo laboral es algo que debería considerar en su empresa.

GDPR and What it Means to Your Startup (Here's a Hint - Don't Ignore It!) (Room: #C1722)
Limited Capacity seats available

Whether just starting your company or migrating your existing storage infrastructure or applications issues of cybersecurity, speed, and scalability should be high on everyone’s agenda. Add to that Privacy and “Data Protection” (as this is referred to in Europe) and the requirements keep getting more and more complicated. As a founder or technology leader in your organization, if Privacy and Data Protection that is critical to any company’s ability to succeed and build a trustworthy reputation isn’t at the top of your list, it should be.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest change in data privacy and protection laws in over 20 years. It has a number of important requirements that every company should know about:
• The GDPR applies to companies around the world, not just in Europe. If you offer any services in Europe, or handle the data from European individuals, you could be covered
• Failure to comply with GDPR carries fines of up to 4% of global revenue
• Some forty-four independent regulators are poised to enforce the GDPR today

Come join this panel to hear how these legal changes can impact your global business, and what steps and options are available to put you on the path to compliance. GDPR is not something your startup should not ignore. Ya sea que solo inicie su empresa o migre su infraestructura de datos o aplicaciones existentes, los problemas de ciber-seguridad, velocidad y escalabilidad deben ser prioritarios en la agenda de todos nosotros. Implementar privacidad y un sistema de "Protección de datos" (como se hace referencia en Europa)implican requisitos que se vuelven cada vez más complicados de alcanzar. Como fundador de su empresa o líder tecnológico de su organización, si la privacidad y la protección de datos que son fundamentales para la capacidad de una empresa para tener éxito y construir una reputación confiable, no es prioridad en su lista, debería serlo.

El Reglamento General de Protección de Datos de la Unión Europea (GDPR por sus siglas en ingles) es el mayor cambio habido en las leyes de privacidad y protección de datos en más de 20 años. Tiene una serie de requisitos importantes que toda empresa debe conocer:
• El GDPR se aplica a empresas de todo el mundo, no solo de Europa. Si usted ofrece algún servicio en Europa o maneja los datos de clientela europea, podría necesitar informarse mas y acceder a esta tecnologia
• El incumplimiento de GDPR conlleva multas de hasta el 4% de los ingresos mundiales
• Alrededor de 44 agentes reguladores independientes están verificando que se cumplan los reglamentos del GDPR hoy

Únase a este panel para aprender cómo estos cambios legales pueden afectar a su negocio a manera global, y qué pasos y opciones están disponibles para ponerlo en el camino del cumplimiento de las normas. El GDPR es algo que no debería ignorar.

Incubators, Accelerators, or Go it Alone? (Room: #C1724)
Limited Capacity seats available

In recent years, the landscape of financing alternatives for seed-stage companies has become somewhat complicated for founders. Depending on where you are the number of (or the lack of) incubators and accelerators supporting startups can be a daunting gauntlet.

Come along to this conversation to hear discussion around whether a startup can be better served by joining up with an incubator/accelerator or by simply “going it alone” and building from ground up with support from an experienced investor. En los últimos años, el panorama de las alternativas de financiación para las empresas en etapa inicial se ha complicado un tanto para sus fundadores. Dependiendo de dónde se encuentre, la cantidad de (o la falta de) fuentes que apoyen las empresas puede ser un panorama desalentador. Participe en esta conversación para aprender de la discusión sobre si una empresa puede ser mejor servida uniéndose con una fuente de apoyo de empresas o simplemente "yendo solo" y construyendo desde cero con el único apoyo de un inversionista experimentado.

The Inclusive Aspects of Multi-Generational Entrepreneurship (Room: Community Room B)
Limited Capacity seats available

With 55 million millennials forming the largest contingent of today's workforce in the country, it's no wonder companies are scratching their heads wondering how to attract and retain members of this tech-savvy generation. It is also important to remember, though, that there are other people in the workforce too. Gen-X'ers, at nearly 5 million strong, still have a good amount of workforce contributions ahead of them (and according to Sage Software, Inc. are more likely to start a startup than a millennial), and 44 million Baby Boomers show up to work every day. Let's not forget the talent, motivation and, experience in the workforce beyond millennials. Join this conversation with a multigenerational panel of founders, leaders, and startups.

Con 55 millones de millennials siendo el mas grande grupo laboral actual en el país, no es de extrañar que las empresas se rasquen la cabeza preguntándose cómo atraer y retener a los miembros de esta generación conocedora de la tecnología. También es importante recordar que también hay otros grupos en el mundo laboral del país. Los de la generación X con casi 5 millones de personas, todavía tienen una buena cantidad de contribuciones de la fuerza de trabajo (y según Sage Software, Inc. los de la generación X tienen más probabilidades de comenzar una startup que un millennial). Finalmente, 44 millones de Baby Boomers salen a trabajar todos los días. No olvidemos el talento, la motivación y la experiencia de todos los grupos que conforman fuerza laboral del país y no solo a los de la generación del milenio. Únase a esta conversación con un panel de diversas generaciones de empresarios, líderes de negocios y emprendedores.

Cyber Security for Startups: It Should Not be an Afterthought.
Limited Capacity seats available

Cybersecurity is now simply one of the many realities of doing business today, and those developers with cybersecurity skills will be the biggest tech heroes in years to come. More data breaches equals more problems for developers. The rising risks in cybersecurity mean more developers need to improve knowledge, and their skills in this critical field.

The benefits of cybersecurity and secure software development practices are vast and measurable but, while improved security is easy to quantify, it’s not always so easy to achieve. A very large percentage of CIO’s in the U.S. claim it’s challenging to find skilled IT professionals today with experience in cybersecurity and those with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience are in high demand. What does that do for you outside of earning you plenty of opportunity?

Come join this panel of developers, founders, mentors and subject matter experts as they discuss the threats, talk about best practices, secure programs and programming, and opportunities to evolve your cybersecurity skills for tomorrow’s opportunity. La cyber-seguridad ahora es simplemente una de las muchas realidades para hacer negocios hoy en día y los técnicos con habilidades de cyber-seguridad serán los héroes de la tecnología en los próximos años. Más asaltos de datos e información privada equivalen a más problemas para los programadores y técnicos. Los crecientes riesgos en seguridad cibernética significan que más técnicos necesiten mejorar el conocimiento y sus habilidades en este campo crítico. Los beneficios de la ciberseguridad y las prácticas seguras de desarrollo de software son amplios y mensurables, pero si bien la seguridad informática es fácil de cuantificar, no siempre es tan fácil de lograr. Un gran porcentaje de CIO en los Estados Unidos afirma que es un desafío encontrar hoy en día profesionales de TI capacitados con experiencia en cyber-seguridad y aquellos con los conocimientos, las habilidades y la experiencia necesarias tienen una gran demanda. ¿Qué es lo que hace esto por usted fuera de hacerle ganar muchas oportunidades? Participe en este panel de técnicos, fundadores de empresas, mentores y expertos en la materia que hablarán de las amenazas informáticas, las prácticas, programas y programación segura, así como los campos para desarrollar sus habilidades en cyber-seguridad para mayores oportunidades en el futuro.

Workshop: Develop the Warrior Mindset Instead of the Whatever Mindset and Empower Yourself to Claim, "My life is worth the fight!"
Limited Capacity seats available

This is MY life! My life is valuable and WORTH THE FIGHT. Those who are with me deserve to be PROTECTED BY ME AS WELL. Denial doesn’t make me safe. IN FACT, denial has NEGAGTIVE side effects and will cause me to be unprepared and ineffective. PERSONAL SAFETY IS MY RESPONSIBILITY. I will make this investment in my life because MY LIFE IS WORTH THE FIGHT. – Damsel IN DEFENSE.

Here is why you should come and participate in this Warrior Workshop!
1. It is a fact that the statistics of becoming a victim of violence are horrible! 1 in every 4
2. You will become empowered and confident!
3. You’ll be able to protect your life AND those that depend on you for protection!
4. You will unleash your inner WARRIOR!
5. It’s so much FUN! ¡Esta es MI vida! Mi vida es valiosa y VALE LA PENA luchar. Los que están conmigo merecen también ser PROTEGIDOS POR MÍ. La negación no me pone a salvo. DE HECHO, la negación tiene efectos secundarios NEGATIVOS y me hará no estar preparado y no ser eficaz. MI SEGURIDAD PERSONAL ES MI RESPONSABILIDAD. Haré esta inversión en mi vida porque MI VIDA VALE LA PELEA. - Damsel IN DEFENSE.

¡Aquí tiene la razón del por qué debería venir y participar en este Taller de Guerreros!
1. ¡Son reales las estadísticas de convertirse en víctima de la violencia. Eso es horrible! 1 de cada 4
2. ¡Se sentirá Ud. lleno de poder y seguro!
3. ¡Podrá proteger su vida y a aquellos que dependen de usted de protección!
4. ¡Liberará a su GUERRERO interior!
5. ¡Será divertido!

Eternals in Times of Change: The You in "Smarter.Together." Entrepreneurship
Limited Capacity seats available

As our week of learning, connecting, collaborating and envisioning draws to a close, remember that our entrepreneurial ecosystem would not thrive without you. While each of us is a leader in our own entrepreneurial journey, when we support others along their journey, we ourselves are much richer for it. That support is especially vital in times like ours — times of hyper-rapid change.

The two key words for this year’s Longmont Startup Week? Smarter. Together. Our final speaker of the week, Dawnet Beverley, is an icon of Smarter.Together. So, come celebrate our entrepreneurial journeys together. Hear Dawnet on how, together, we can strengthen and inspire one another, unite in a common purpose, and elevate entrepreneurs of all backgrounds.

We hope that through our Startup Week you have gained new insight, found new tools, and made new connections that enable your venture to be Smarter.Together.

*Available in English, Spanish and ASL.
*ASL Interpretation by Jessica Collins A medida que nuestra semana de aprendizaje, conexión, colaboración y visualización llegue a su fin, es fundamental recordar que nuestro ecosistema emprendedores no prosperará sin USTED. Cada uno de nosotros es un líder en nuestro propio viaje de emprendimiento, y cuando apoyamos a otros a lo largo de su viaje, a su vez somos mucho más ricos. Hay varias razones por las que elegimos nuestras dos palabras clave para el Longmont Startweek de este año: Inteligencia / Juntos . Nuestro último orador de la semana, Dawnet Beverley, es ejemplo de la verdadera naturaleza de Inteligencia / Juntos así que vengan a celebrar juntos nuestro viaje emprendedor y escuchando a Dawnet hablar sobre su experiencia, sus desafíos y cómo juntos podemos fortalecernos e inspirarnos unos a otros, únanse en un propósito común para apoyar y engrandecer la capacidad de los empresarios de todos los orígenes, y al hacerlo, amplíen nuestra comunidad en apertura, innovación y aceptación.

Esperamos que a través de nuestra Startup Week usted obtenga nuevas perspectivas, adquiera nuevas herramientas, haga nuevas conexiones y amigos que le permiten a usted y su empresa desarrollar un poco mas de inteligencia y al ser parte de nuestro StartWeek, esperamos que permanezca como parte de nuestra comunidad para elevar los recursos empresariales de nuestras ciudades Juntos.

6:00 p.m. - Jackson Cloud will be helping us celebrate and close out Longmont Startup Week!

Jackson Cloud is a young, naturally talented musician from Longmont Colorado. His instrument of choice is the electric guitar however he has found that his voice is an extension of the vibrating strings, which now work as one instrument. Old Blues and Rock & Roll came out very naturally at first, but he has started to write his own material and the sounds are much more.

After a successful week of learning, meeting and connecting with new people and helping us celebrate Longmont's growing entrepreneurial community. You sure deserve the celebration!
