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.

For reals? Yes. It’s going to be amazing. and the IT Solutions Superstars at Gorilla Logic have teamed up to host this unique show on Tuesday, September 13th from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thanks to CSU-Denver, located at 475 17th St., Ste. 200, for being brave enough to let us host the event there. Also, beer and snacks are on the house.
