Join a conversation with Governor Polis – an entrepreneur, ecosystem builder, and elected official – about the future of rural Colorado. 

Before Jared Polis became the 43rd Governor of Colorado, he was a successful entrepreneur who started and sold multiple companies. He’s one of the founders of Techstars (the platform bringing you Startup Weeks). He was also what we now call an “ecosystem builder” focusing on education, access to technology, and the intersection of the two. Now, he’s a politician charged with leading the State of Colorado. What’s his vision for rural Colorado? What does he see as the next steps for supporting entrepreneurship and startup communities in rural Colorado? As a past entrepreneur, what ideas does he have for rural growth and ecosystem building? Tune in to find out.

Moderated by Connie Baker, Head Distiller & Queen Bee of Marble Distilling in Carbondale, CO
