We’re not going to waste a lot of letters on words. You need more time to experience everything that’s taking place May 14-18 for Boulder Startup Week 2018.
If you want to skedaddle now and peruse the schedule, be our guest. But if you’d like to know how to score free domains and swag at what could possibly be the best events for inspiration, fun, tacos, and beer, then here they are:
Batsh!t Crazy 5-6:15 p.m: Not just being crass, that’s the name of the event we’re moderating with Scott Jurek & Aquiles La Grave as they share their guano crazy pursuits and adventures in route to achieving farfetched goals. (For example, Scott ran the Appalachian Trail in 46 days.)
Hack the Dot 6-9 p.m.: Sometimes we get a little embarrassed at how much we talk up these short-form hackathons, but then again they are pretty great. Thanks to NiCHE Workspaces for hosting the domain-driven competition that’s as much fun as it is functional.
Boulder Open Coffee Club 8 a.m.: After Monday, which features at least two opening parties, you might need some caffeine to accost another day of activity. Name.com is buying the coffee and pastries at BOCC, the long-running informal meetup that discusses tech jobs and news, and always leaves you feeling much better about the world.
Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals 5 p.m: If you think you’ve seen everything, or at least haven’t been impressed by everything you’ve seen, then this is the event for you. CEOs and founders like David Brown from Techstars and Kelly Dotseth of Brandzooka share their stories of startup success (and failure.) And then their stories are reinterpreted by improv actors. Also, it’s at Post Brewing so there will be great food and beer.
Job Fair 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m : To title this ‘Job Fair’ so plainly does little to share how insane and fulfilling it is. Around 1,200 people circulate through the Boulder Theater to talk jobs and pick up free swag. We’ll have free domain names and we are indeed looking for new hires.
Tweets for Tacos 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. – Just show up and share nice stuff about us and we give you tacos. Also, David Barnett, the founder of PopSockets, is kicking in some prizes for the event that’s been described as one of the best ways possible to bribe people to like you.
And, really, there are hundreds of amazing events that can all be found on the Boulder Startup Week schedule.
