Panel: Successful Colorado-style startups: Doing good while doing well

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us for a founders panel of Colorado-grown sustainable businesses -- Odell and OtterBox -- who have successfully scaled their Fort Collins-grown startups while giving back from the beginning. They'll share how they made decisions and tradeoffs that let them give from the beginning; how they modeled behaviors that shaped their giving culture.
We'll also learn from more recently founded startups -- The Food Corridor and Horse & Dragon -- as they share how they are already giving back to the community.
Finally, we'll quickly share how you can take easy steps to give back from the beginning, creating your own growing, giving startup.
