Tech Tuesday: Denver Startup Week

9NEWS at 7 a.m. 09/13/16.

KUSA - Gary Shapiro sat down with 9NEWS tech expert Scott Yates to talk about Denver Startup Week, which continues to grow in quantity and quality in this, its fifth year.

This is the largest startup week in the country, and this year the topics have expanded to include related topics like food, architecture, sales, and of course the social events with lots of beer.

A few highlights just from today:

Man vs. Machine in Content Marketing. (Shameless self-promotion alert!) This panel features Jim Gunderson Ph.D., an artificial intelligence expert and founder of CAIT, an app that says it can use computers to create content for social networks. Also on the panel is Yates, representing the idea that only humans can create the content that other humans want to read.

Age of the Freelancer. This panel will focus on the transformation in our economy away from regular full-time jobs to freelance gigs. It will be hosted at Craftsy, the popular site for sharing lessons on crafty projects.

A Look Inside Punch Bowl Social Stapleton. This event will be held not at Stapleton, but at the office of the architect who created the hit social spot, and the architects and others involved will talk about the creative process, branding, etc.

Elephant Hunting - Leading Your Startup through Enterprise Deals. This is a tech all-star panel featuring Samantha Holloway, Cofounder and Chief Sales Officer at GoSpotCheck, Holly Hamann, Cofounder and former CMO at TapInfluence, and others talking about how small companies can land big accounts. 

These are just a handful of more than 200 events still left this week. All of them are free, but many of them are already full so be sure to register before you go.

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 human being 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.
