14 Youth-Led Startups Launching in Boulder

Colorado Youth Pave the Way for Innovation

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

- Buckminster Fuller

Innovation is critical for our future. Yet, our current education systems are teaching memorization versus critical and creative learning necessary for our rapidly growing world.

That is all about to change.

14 young leaders from Colorado have emerged from the Dream Tank, where they have been incubating and designing an innovation that helps people and the planet. With their imagination, productive use of technology, and strong community allies, the Dreamakers have each uncovered a unique way to shape the future. The ventures will be revealed on Innovation Night April 11th. Get your tickets and bring a friend! Kids under 16 are FREE.

The night will feature innovation in:

  • DESIGN & MAKERS
  • INVENTIONS & TECHNOLOGY
  • SOCIAL ACTION & ANIMAL RIGHTS
