ESPRIT 2009

I’ve been involved with the Boulder ESPRIT Awards for the the last 8 years. ESPRIT is put on by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce to “celebrate entrepreneurship” in Boulder county. Each year ESPRIT honors a handful of entrepreneurs who embody the best attributes of the Boulder business community.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the awards and the program will celebrate the last 25 years of innovation in Boulder valley and look forward to some of the people and programs that are serving as catalysts for innovation for the next 25 years.

I’m the event chair this year, which means for the first time since I’ve been involved, I actually don’t have that much to do although I will be emceeing the awards dinner (which promises to be both fun and funny). In addition to the dinner there are a handful of events that are worth checking out:

  • The Technology Alliance Breakfast. A showcase of new and emerging technology from the CU Tech Transfer offices.
  • Breakfast/Lunch Series. 3 separate events with panelists representing the past, present and future in different industry segments.
  • Onsite  Tours. Featuring Sterling Rice Group and People Productions

The action all takes place on October 6th. You can find more on the ESPRIT site or you can email me directly for more information.

Hope to see you there!
