Next MashUp, April 16, Ivywild School. FREE!

TAKE THE PLUNGE!  At some level, we're all entrepreneurs--some of us in spirit; others in practice. The next MashUp is all about celebrating entrepreneurial courage and helping aspiring entrepreneurs take the next step, whatever it may be.  Up to 5 would-be entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their ideas or innovations and receive real-time feedback from a group of successful entrepreneurs who enjoy helping others and who have adopted a triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) approach to running their businesses. One lucky entrepreneur will have the opportunity to win dinner with a startup pro at the Ivywild School, whose founders embody the entrepreneurial spirit.

WHAT IS MASHUP? MashUp is a high-impact networking event that brings together aspiring entrepreneurs, investors, startup pros, and job seekers in a fun environment with great people! In the startup world, the right connections are at least as important as a great idea. MashUp was launched for this very reason--to help entrepreneurs connect with the resources they need to pursue their great ideas. The next MashUp is part of Innovate Colorado Springs, a community initiative created to serve as a catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurship in the Pikes Peak region.

“There’s a lot of poor advice out there, which can seriously damage or kill a new company. Entrepreneurs must be very careful about who they invite on their journey and what advice they take. I’m incredibly grateful to the Incubator team for their wisdom and expertise, which have been invaluable to my company.”
