Colorado Impact Days is in its infancy. But founder Stephanie Gripne believes it has the legs to grow into an event like Denver Startup Week – gaining national exposure and attention.

In its second year, the downtown Denver event brings in businesses with a social mission and people and foundations with money and desire to fund them.

Gripne, the founder of the Denver-based nonprofit Impact Finance Center, launched Colorado Impact Days last year and heads into the second year today with three days of events.

It’s designed as a high-level networking and educational event for social ventures and investors to meet and possibly make deals.
