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.

Growth Sherpas: Talent, Capital, Community - Traversing the Seed Stage Gap
Limited Capacity filling up

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.

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: 
Each question or conversational topic will be posed to the audience and invited to answer. Those invited to respond will have just a few short minutes (timed) to respond, if there is no audience respondent the dubious task will fall to the panel subject matter expert.

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.

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.

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.
