November 1: There is a great deal of celebration for success and growth in ones life, however, we frequently neglect the celebration of dealing with and appreciating loss. With that, we’d like to practice new traditions by honoring recent failures in the community. This event is to connect with and inspire those who may have, may be, and may eventually face failure. Failure is progress and we must become more comfortable in the opportunity that can arise from taking a risk. Brought to you by Epicentral Coworking and Peak Startup.

Startup Weekend Colorado Springs
November 10 – 12: All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
This event occurs in conjunction with Global Startup Weekend in November.
