More than ten years ago a modest technology incubator came into being in Fort Collins. The goal was to connect promising high tech startup companies with a network of experienced business advisors during an era of significant technology layoffs and corporate downsizing.
This spring the technology incubator, Rocky Mountain Innovation Initiative, is building their first office building for their clients, local entrepreneurs. The incubator has matured from a virtual, one staff person entity with four clients to a thriving regional home for entrepreneurs with satellite offices in Loveland and Greeley. Mark Forsyth, the Executive Director, Kelly Peters, Chief Operating Officer and Nicole Franklin, Office Administrator have worked tirelessly to help entrepreneurs realize their innovative dreams in the business world.
The public is invited to attend a reception celebrating the groundbreaking of the new building on Wednesday, April 7 during the monthly Innovation After Hours. Speakers will discuss the building design, opportunities for the business community to engage with the incubator and recent success stories of featured clients.
Wednesday, April 7, 4-6 p.m.
The Armory Event Hall, 314 E. Mountain Ave. (next to Melting Pot and Wadoo Furniture Store)
