One of the projects I worked on when I lived in Colorado during Q1 ’07 was TechStars, a start-up bootcamp to help incubate and launch new business ideas. It just got going! Ten outstanding teams of young entrepreneurs have moved to Boulder and are working hard at developing their concepts.
You can follow the progress at the TechStars Blog. David Cohen has posted a couple video updates of the progress, including this panel which talk about whether your idea needs to be brilliant on day one, how to consider customer feedback, and other useful topics.
I’ll be in Boulder from July 18 – 20 this summer. Among other things, I’m hosting the First Annual TechStars Ping-Pong Classic.
I look forward to meeting all the entrepreneurs this summer and battling it out on the ping pong table!
