Here’s a new entry on the Colorado Startups events calendar. It’s December 18 in Boulder, and it’s called “Critical Success Factors for Startups: An Evening with MIT’s Ken Morse.”
Ken Morse is the Director of the MIT Entrepreneurship Center at Sloan School and the co-founder of 3COM and Aspen Technology. As a serial entrepreneur, Ken is batting 0.833 with 5 successful merger/IPO exits… and a spectacular crash-n-burn. At the Entrepreneurship Center, Ken has kept young by inspiring, educating (and being educated by) the youngest and brightest from all walks of students at MIT. On Tuesday, Ken will share the success factors he’s observed across the myriad of startups he’s mentored and partook. What works.. and what doesn’t. There will also be a mini pitch-a-thon with 3 local startup companies doing a 60-second pitch with instant feedback from Ken.
Come meet Ken and share an evening of enthusiasm in the local entrepreneurial community. The technology-friendly gang at Faegre & Benson Law is generously donating their Boulder meeting place along with plenty of good cheer, hors d’oerves and spirits for all to indulge.
Register to attend here (see rates below).
