The Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado

Comments (3)

Yesterday a group of us announced the creation of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado.  This is a project I’ve been working on since last fall that I’m especially proud of.  The press release is a good overview, as is the short article in today’s Rocky Mountain News titled Young firms urged to give helping hand.

The founding member companies are Collective Intellect, Me.dium, NewsGator, Rally Software, and Tendril.  I want to thank the leadership teams, the employees, and the investors in these companies for their great support and help in figuring out a lot of the details of how this should work.

The founding trustees are me, Tim Connor, Sequel Venture Partners, JB Holston, NewsGator, Kyle Lefkoff, Boulder Ventures, Ryan Martens, Rally Software, Mike Platt, Cooley Godward Kronish, and Bill Roberts, Hogan & Hartson.

The Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado is a “sub-fund” of the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County.  We’ve already built alliances with the two primary Denver-based Community Foundations – The Denver Foundation and Rose Community Foundation – and hope over time to have alliances with all of the Community Foundations in Colorado.  Thanks to Josie Heath and the great folks at the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County for their enthusiasm, support, and help.

We are an affiliate of the Entrepreneurs Foundation, an organization that began in the Bay Area that now has affiliates around the United States and in Israel.

Finally, a special thanks to my assistant Kelly Collins for being the ringleader of all of the people involved.

Look for more coming soon – please follow our progress on the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado web site.  If you are part of a company in Colorado that is interested in finding out more about participating, please email me.

    This is very cool, Brad. Man, with Mobius, Foundry, TechStars and this (I am sure there are 4-5 others I have missed) you must be lobbying for the 36 hour day. ;-)

    No way – no 36 hour days for me – my days are long enough as it is. I just type fast.
