This morning I took a ride up Sunshine Canyon in Boulder. We stopped half way up and we looked around and took a little poll about who was on the trip. We had 4 Techstars companies represented (Orbotix, Kapost, Everlater, and PivotDesk), one VC (Hwy12), and one Techstars mentor (Jamie).
While biking 6 miles straight up, and in between deep breaths, we talked about building product faster to meet demand (Dave from PivotDesk), growing revenue (Mark from Hwy12), and how to correctly build a financial model for a an early stage company (Nate and Natty from Everlater). If you’re wondering how work in Boulder happens or how the tech community interacts, I’d say this was a pretty perfect example.
Oh, and the views aren’t bad either….
You can see the damage from the fire from 2 years ago still:
