So, you’re ready to disrupt the market & conquer the world.

This Modified Q&A session is good for you if:
-No-one seems to be finding you online

-People keep telling you things like you should be on Facebook or you should blog more, but you just ignore them because you don’t really know why or how
-You've got burning questions about digital marketing that you'd like answered
-You've invested in online marketing but haven't seen a positive ROI yet.

101 Topics we will touch on:
-SEO & Content Marketing
-Facebook
-Google Analytics

Format:
3 high-energy presentations (10 minutes each) covering an overview of the topic, pro tips, mistakes to avoid and tools.
45 Minutes of open Q&A.
Plenty of Networking!

Brown Bag Series: Ideas MATTER. Protect them with a strong IP strategy.

  • 350 Terry Street Suite 300 Longmont, CO, 80501 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Investors often like to say, "ideas don't matter."
They're WRONG.
Ideas MATTER.
Protect them with a strong intellectual property strategy.

This meetup will give a summary overview of the overlapping kinds of IP available to entrepreneurs, (often at a relatively low initial cost) as well as a strategy of how to protect, leverage and profit from them.

The Brown Bag meetup is a bi-weekly meeting of entrepreneurs and others interested in topics related to small business. Feel free to bring lunch and eat during this time!

This meetup will begin a series of talks about entrepreneurship that we hope to co-develop with other members of the Longmont and Front Range Community into a kind of basic Entrepreneurship 101 curriculum. We encourage collective masterminding with each other about the common challenges entrepreneurs face, and the pooling of resources.

Check back here to see what topics are being considered for coming weeks.

This bi-weekly series is open to all and no cost to attend.

This is an opportunity to join with others in the area who are involved in a startup, starting a business, developing ideas, or have experience, knowledge, and services that startups need to thrive. Open to all, so bring your friends!

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” –Nolan Bushnell, Entrepreneur

KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for Startups. Oxymoron or essential?

KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for Startups. Oxymoron or essential?

Friday Brown Bag Series Topic: KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for Startups. Oxymoron or essential?

Metrics in a startup often involve basic survival. My friend called it the "relish" diet. "We are out of hot dogs, down to the little relish packets . . . ." Yet investors like/want/need metrics, often to an absurd level (for a startup), to try and mitigate their (and your) lack of understanding of your business. Yet metrics can also help tell your evolving story. Even if they are lacking or inappropriate or completely fictional at this stage, they help construct what success might look like, and gives you and your team targets to achieve and measure and track.

We will explore these conventions, both useful and silly, and how to create them, and hopefully help you both build your business and raise the capital to keep it growing.

We encourage collective masterminding with each other about the common challenges entrepreneurs face, and the pooling of resources.
