Food tech? It's all a part of Denver Startup Week

9NEWS at 7 a.m. 9/6/16.

KUSA - Gary Shapiro sat down with 9NEWS tech expert Scott Yates to talk about how Denver Startup Week has evolved over the last five years.

Denver Startup Week is coming next week, and while traditionally this is a chance for high-tech startups to share secrets and tips, here in its fifth year it has expanded to include the tech aspects of many other industries, even restaurants.

For example, Adam Schlegel — one of the two brothers who founded Snooze, the popular breakfast restaurant — will be leading a panel called The Sleeper Startup Scene: Food at Its Finest.

The intersection of technology and hospitality is especially interesting for those thinking about a change in work. High tech businesses are always looking for new employees, and one in five of the new jobs created in metro Denver are in the hospitality industry.

This is one of more than 200 events, which are all free and open to the public, and most do fill up so it's worth registering ahead of time.

Each Tech Tuesday Scott Yates showcases new and emerging companies that are doing great things in Colorado, along with tech events. This post was written by one of the freelance writers working with Scott's company, the outsourced ghost writing service BlogMutt. Do you want to see your business featured in a future Tech Tuesday segment? Build an interesting business and then go to a startup event, and Scott will probably see you there.
