Want to learn about innovation and entrepreneurship programs happening on campus? How about a chance to hear from amazing entrepreneurs like the founder of Icelantic Skis? Or are you in the market to win an Apple Watch? If you said yes to any of these questions, join us at the 2nd annual Innovation & Entrepreneurship Campus Kickoff!

Come early when doors open on Friday, Sept. 20 at 4:30 p.m. for free food, drinks and networking with campus representatives at our Innovation & Entrepreneurship ecosystem fair. Check out their booths to learn about CU Boulder entrepreneurial courses, innovation-specific resources, venture competitions and beyond. 

Our event program includes pitches from former New Venture Challenge winners, an "Entrepreneurs Unplugged" chat with the founder and CEO of Icelantic Skis and inspirational stories from CU Boulder student entrepreneurs. Make sure to stay for our Innovation & Entrepreneurship Awards, where we'll recognize key individuals for their contributions in driving and supporting innovation and entrepreneurship at CU Boulder. It could be you!

At the end of the program we will giveaway an Apple Watch to one lucky audience member. The ecosystem fair also opens back up if you couldn't come early - this time with dessert.

The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Campus Kickoff is CU Boulder's largest entrepreneurial event hosted during the fall semester, so you don't want to miss this!
