Many cities claim to be the “next Silicon Valley,” or at least that’s what they hope. But few of them actually have the right ingredients to get the virtuous cycle of entrepreneurship and financial success rolling.
It’s the first annual Startup Week here in Denver. I was out last night at the Cowboy Lounge for the Tech Cocktail event, which was an equal mix of beer drinking and technology demos. I was amazed by the vibrant startup scene there with entrepreneures of all types bumping into one another at the bar and discussing their ideas.
Denver is only 30 miles from Boulder, and it looks like Boulder was just named one of the top emerging places for startups.
