Ken Fricklas

The CORE Denver
Founding Partner
Denver, CO
With over 20 years of CTO, VP of Development, and Innovation Lead experience, I have been bringing a combination of lean strategy and UX, technical depth, and startup management and mentoring experience to a wide variety of companies. I also teach Lean Startup management and techniques and Google Sprint at a number of local accelerators, incubators, and on a consulting basis.

I am expert at creating stakeholder communities, and led the Big Data, and Internet of Things (including Smart Home and Smart Cities) communities among the cable television community at CableLabs.

I've been an instructor for Adobe, RMCAD, and Regis College on a variety of web development and design areas (including Dreamweaver, HTML/CSS, programming, and internet technology and strategy), and have written many articles and books for Adobe and others. I'm also a frequent speaker at conferences, including Internet World, Adobe MAX, IOT-Week.eu, the Telcom Council, and various CableLabs conferences. My most recent book (Sr. Technical Editor) is "Machine Learning with Tensorflow" (with Nishant Shukla) from Manning Publications, and my next upcoming book (co-Author) is the 2nd Edition of "Machine Learning In Action", also from Manning.

I'm heavily involved the Denver/Boulder startup community, and am also known as a lead for TEDxBoulder and 10.10.10.
