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.
