A Hot Week For Boise Entrepreneurs!

Posted by: Mark Solon        

Spring has sprung and the temperature isn’t the only thing heating up in Boise. Next week has turned into a terrific string of events for Treasure Valley entrepreneurs and startups. Here’s a rundown:


1) As I’ve shared in a previous post, on Wednesday 4/21 the founders of TechStars will be at the Watercooler to talk about their highly-successful mentorship program. Highway 12 Ventures has funded two TechStars graduates. It’s an incredible program that gives startups a terrific advantage. If you know any people who have just started a tech company or who are even dreaming of it, this is a can’t miss event. Applications for the Seattle program are open until June 1. Let’s get a few Idaho companies to apply!


2) On Thursday, 4/22 IgniteBoise IV happens at the Egyptian Theatre. 5 minutes, 20 slides. It’s a few hours of pure energy. If you haven’t been to an IgniteBoise event, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It’s an international phenomenon.

3) On Friday 4/23 Kevin Donaldson, VP Product Management at Balihoo has organized a viewing of the national simulcast of Eric Ries’ “Startup lessons learned”. This is another must-attend for startups! My pal Brad Feld also blogged about the event.

All-in-all, a very exciting week next week for Idaho entrepreneurs. I hope you’ll share this with your networks. My partners and I will be at all three of these events, hope to see many of you there!
