DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Registration for free events at 2016 Denver Startup Week, now underway, has broken all previous attendance records since the event was launched in 2012.
At the kickoff Monday, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said he hoped the entrepreneurial event would attract 11,000 people. But event organizers announced Wednesday that 12,500 people have registered for the 300 events across the city.

The event, in its fifth year, ends Friday. It attracts founders and investors from all industry areas for panel discussions, workshops and social events centered around startups and entrepreneurs.
