From September 25th through the 29th, Denver Startup Week is highlighting the people, companies, and ideas that look to change every industry from robotics to restaurants.

Let’s take a look at some of the important events you should definitely catch before the end of this important week.
When: Wednesday, September 27th @ 10 am

One of the essential factors of a good startup is a talented roster of employees. However, especially if it’s your first time going through the hiring process, there’s definitely some missteps to watch out for. Uniting for a special morning panel, talent acquisition professionals that have worked with companies such as Sphero and Galvanize will give their opinions on topics from finding the right employees to avoiding common hiring mistakes.
When: Thursday, September 28th @ 3 pm
Where: Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox – 1215 20th St
Establishing your company’s culture is one of the most important parts of starting your own business. However, it can be easy to fall into the tried and true model of a corporate culture. Thankfully, Justin Cucci (the founder, designer, and head chef for popular Denver restaurants such as Linger, El Five, and Root Down) is offering his advice on staying away from corporate culture and establishing your own identity.
When: Friday September 29th @ 4pm
Where: The Garage – 2126 Arapahoe St Denver, CO
Finishing off the week with some lighthearted fun, a member of the Denver Mad Scientists will be doing something a little different: taking your wildest ideas and envisioning them. The Mad Scientists, who have been featured at Mile High Con as well as on the popular show Mythbusters, are known for being an underground group of “makers”. Drawing out a sketch of your design ideas, the Mad Scientist member will test your abilities as an inventor. What better way to celebrate the end of Denver Startup Week than by focusing on unconventional ideas?
