idec & boulder

via @andrewhyde & @bfeld cc @samchaltain- icec & boulder
The best stuff at conferences happens in hallways and the after-parties, so I thought about simply structuring an event as a giant hallway. We could just create a free, decentralized event—no badges, no specific venue, and no checking in. The entire event would be one big hallway through the Boulder startup community.

Accordingly, the CU New Venture Challenge identified three objectives: (1) collapse the campus: convene cross-disciplinary congregations and stimulate interaction across departments; (2) create an entrepreneurial launch pad: provide a campus platform that answers the question, “Where do I start if I want to do a startup?”; and (3) provide a pipeline to the community: The CU New Venture Challenge should be a point of entry for CU students and faculty to get meaningfully involved in the region’s startup scene.
