David Brown, Founder of Techstars: From Small Boulder Company, to Worldwide Accelerator
David Brown is a lifelong entrepreneur with a 30-year career starting and building sustainable companies, including Pinpoint Technologies (sold to ZOLL Medical) and Techstars (still going strong). His passion is working with and helping entrepreneurs at all stages. He has a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. As a ski instructor in the past, he still enjoys hitting the slopes on a good powder day.
Techstars, getting its start in Boulder in 2007, now has locations all over the world. This "worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed" has helped over 2,200 startups and a #givefirst mentality.
Startups & Sandwiches brings seasoned entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and tech leaders together with the best sandwiches the city of Boulder has to offer.
A recurring series hosted by the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship in Leeds, each Startups & Sandwiches event provides up to 30 students with a unique opportunity to meet and network with executives and founders alike, and participate in a presentation, challenge, or discussion facilitated by our guest. Each guest brings their own flavor to their session, and no two lunches are alike. Glimpse into the startup ecosystem—and try the Deming Team’s favorite local sandwich shops.
Seats are limited and open to any student on campus, so be sure to RSVP quickly and let us know if you can’t attend so we can open your seat to someone else.
