Come build a powerful network of freelancers in Denver
By Drew Hornbein
I’m a freelance consultant in Denver who’s been working on my own for nearly 15 years. It’s awesome: I’m my own boss, I choose who I work for, the work is varied and interesting, I have the freedom to travel, and pants are optional (in my home office anyway).
This is what independent workers will tell you, but we often don’t share the things that suck. I’m my own boss, but I’m also the accountant, the marketing department, and mail clerk. We live in a constant state of feast and famine, always rushing to find the next bit of work before the money runs out. It’s also super lonesome. No one to bounce ideas off of or talk me off the ledge when I am ready to give up, ghost all my clients, and live in the woods as a hermit.
A stupefying array of activity for Boulder Startup Week 2018
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.
Battle of the brands: Name.com v. Brandzooka
Boulder Startup Week kicks off in just a few days, and we cannot wait to spend some time with the innovators of the Boulder startup community. In preparation for the week we headed down to Boulder to meet with a few brands, including Brandzooka, a fellow Boulder Startup Week sponsor and long time friend.
But what’s friendship without some friendly competition?
Help us make the Name.com Blog better by taking this 3-minute survey
As we approach last few months of 2016 (a scary thought, I know), we’re taking some time to reflect on our year so far and start thinking about how we can do even better in 2017. This blog is first and foremost a resource for you, so we’d like to find out more about what works, what doesn’t, and how we can make the Name.com blog a better resource for our readers.
Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals
Before you read about the greatest event in the history of ever, here’s the entire list of Denver Startup Week Events. They are free and they are awesome. Almost as awesome as this…
During an event as big as Denver Startup Week, it’s hard to stand out. You’ve got to be a tech legend parachuting from an armada of neon airships just to get a glance. But we think we have something better. We have Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals, a show featuring Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and startup luminaries Ashley Kingsley, Bing Chou, and Julie Nirvelli.
These panelists will share their stories while a team of improv comics acts out the narrative.
Nitro Circus goes .LIVE
You don’t know what you’ve got until something as awesome as the Nitro Circus grabs onto it and makes it a Thing.* They are now www.NitroCircus.LIVE and during their Nitro World Games they had over 1 million views on their livestream globally.
