University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff and students – as well as a few alumni – will be represented in force as subject matter experts at Denver Startup Week, a summit of entrepreneurial energy, innovation and connection. Dozens of sessions on entrepreneurship, technology, health, social impact, design, marketing, do-it-yourself creation and leadership will take place across Denver, including on the CU Denver campus.
