One of my favorite parts of filming and making various types of documentary videos is the opportunity to get a realistic glimpse into others’ lives. It’s like getting a buffet table of knowledge where I get to sample different worlds from skydiving to quilting clubs. I love my job. One of the industries I’ve greatly enjoyed documenting is tech, thanks to David Cohen & TechStars. It has been amazing to witness & document the growth of the entrepreneurial community in Boulder over the last few years. There has been tons of exciting press on the tech & entrepreneurial community in Boulder from CNBC, Fox to MSNBC.
The TechStars Network launched January 31 as part of the White House Startup America initiative, the video above explains. The TechStars Network will ensure that 5,000 successful and experienced entrepreneurs and investors will mentor and support 6,000 promising young entrepreneurs, increasing their success rate tenfold and creating 25,000 new jobs by 2015, while creating a sustainable engine for growing these figures over time. I made this video using footage from The Founders web series and thanks to some cool people in NYC for setting up a camera for David’s interview… first time I interviewed someone on skype. You can read more on the TechStars commitment with the Startup America Partnership here and also see the video on their site which is super exciting! If you have an idea you want to pursue, now is a great time to go for it!
