CSYP co-presents: DEFxColorado

August 12, 2017 - 08:30 AM

Air Force Academy Eisenhower Golf Course

Colorado Springs Young Professionals is a proud partner of this event.

Colorado is home to numerous military bases and startup communities; DEFxColorado will leverage the strengths of both groups to create innovation @ elevation within the defense community. DEFxColorado will be held in Colorado Springs – our Nation’s national security capital of the West – home of the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, and Schriever AFB, with Buckley AFB just down the road. Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs all have active ROTC programs and boast growing startup scenes with innovative companies.

Building on the success of the monthly Colorado Springs Drink & Think meetups, we’re hosting a day long DEFxColorado to tackle issues at a deeper level. We will begin the day with TED talk-style speakers and a panel of successful innovators. We’ll then learn Lean Startup principles and Influence Strategies to develop real solutions and strategies to drive change by applying them to real-world challenges.

DEFxColorado is an event organized by the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization disrupting the status quo by inspiring, connecting, and empowering leaders to create a culture of innovation in the defense community. As with all DEF events, uniforms and ties can be left at home.
