Happy Holidays! Here's what we're up to as we approach the end of 2018—and remember, if you want these updates to go straight to your inbox, subscribe in the upper righthand corner of this page.
AMPLIO + STRYD Running Project
One of the things that excites us most about the ecosystem we're building is the unlimited potential for connections and collaborations. A recent example of this is a partnership between AMPLIO (an AI + human performance company co-founded by Trung Tran, a former DARPA project manager) and STRYD (which makes running power meters here in Boulder). The two are teaming up to bring AI to endurance sports, using 12 of our local runner contacts as testers. The goal of the project, using data collected on each person, is to make individual recommendations for optimizing mechanics and increasing power (a.k.a. getting faster!). We can't wait to see what results from this collaboration.
Holiday Kickoff Photos
Thanks to everyone who joined us and JPMorgan Private Bank for our second annual holiday kickoff party. We love when our community gets together and we hope you enjoyed the evening too. Here are a few photos from the party:
Boulder Chamber Networking Event
We hosted another Boulder Chamber of Commerce networking event last week and, as always, were glad to see members of our community learn and connect in our space.
Given the opportunity to say a few words to the audience of young professionals, I drove home a message that I think is worth summarizing: We're living in a world of possibility, abundance, and major change. What an exciting time to be alive! The critical task for each of us is to decide what's most important, and then make it happen. The future is ours to create. We'll do that by turning thoughts into reality and living as true ThinkerDoers. Are you up for the challenge?
"Celebrate Everything" Photos
If we haven't made it clear yet, we'll take any chance we get to celebrate the people and companies in our community. Gail Folwell, Will Day, Rocky Mountain Regenerative Medicine, and East Pearl Studios recently hosted a "Celebrate Everything" party and gave us yet another excuse to gather and toast to 2018.
About the evening, Will Day said,"We appreciate our clients, collectors, and friends so much. This event was our tribute to them. This space has some magic to it and it's really neat what can happen when different companies come together, learn from each other, and support one another." We agree!
