The Ghost will provided lite bites to help fuel your NewCo adventures!
From catering to BBQ cuisine, learn the ins-and-outs of the Boulder food scene from Bob Sargent as he shares his expertise over the last two decades.

What inspired you to become a caterer?

Bob Sargent: Well, I always tell people the story is, is that I just always threw parties. So, between always cooking for my friends and always throwing parties, I always…people always thought it might be a good fit. And my dream was always to open a restaurant, but I just didn’t have the money to start a restaurant. So it was much less expensive to start Savory Cuisines.

Did you have formal training before you started Savory Cuisines and how did Savory Cuisines, the concept, come about.

Bob Sargent: I, actually, was working around town in Boulder, Colorado and before that in Boston. And I kept starting catering divisions for restaurants, and then I went to culinary school here in Boulder, as well, with the hopes of starting a local food business. And had a lot of support from the community, and actually after my training at culinary school, which was good for connections, I used to be the chef at Naropa and that’s where I got my first job from.

Student to Startup: CU Boulder's Entrepreneurship & Community Initiatives
Limited Capacity filling up

An in-depth overview of CU Boulder's entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Shared perspectives from: 


Recently, Forbes named CU-Boulder the 18th most entrepreneurial research university in the country. 

How does a university become a top 20 entrepreneurial university? Certainly with educational programming, experiential learning, innovative students and faculty and the ability to take an idea to commercialization.

But just as important, it requires a pervasive entrepreneurial culture and mindset across the entire campus, in all disciplines. We are lucky to have a supportive surrounding community, which the Boulder Valley provides, as one of the nation’s most entrepreneurial communities.

Rowdy Mermaid
Limited Capacity seats available

Several years ago, Jamba Dunn had a revelation: to build one of the few kombucha taprooms in existence and redefine the limits of fermented tea.

Jamba had been brewing kombucha for friends and family, with inspiration from his toddler daughter (the rowdy mermaid herself). In fall 2013, Jamba met Danielle Martin, the brewer responsible for starting kombucha brewing operations for Brew Dr. Kombucha in Portland. The two began relearning whay they thought they knew of brewing, flavoring and microbiology.

The two opened the taproom in April 2014, acquired some key volunteers, and started serving hand-crafted, organic, and innovative kombucha made from ingredients deliberately selected for their taste and health benefits.

In the midst of that life-altering discussion, Dunn says his then-four-year-old daughter (who fancied herself a "mermaid" at play) went a bit out of control, leaping over someone's head into the water, so he scolded her to stop being a "rowdy mermaid." Spla...

Recognizing a Vision to Cultivate Community While Honoring the Past

Situated in the heart of Boulder, the Rayback is a foodpark. A bar. An event space. A backyard party. A collective of all things Colorado. We have more than 30 taps on deck and a rotating set of some of the area’s most beloved food trucks ready to dish up some of the finest, most eclectic cuisine the city has to offer. We have a stage that’s primed for local talent to impress and a patio where you can show off your cornhole prowess.

Rayback Collective now stands on the site of the old Rayback Plumbing building, and we have a desire to serve our community through our passion for food, drink, music and play. While honoring the past history of this building and the man who spearheaded it all, we are taking the heart of serving this great community to new places for a new generation.

Kickfurther
Limited Capacity filling up

FinTech is currently the Wild West. The financial crisis changed the way banking and commerce will be done forever, allowing for a Gold Rush of tech companies to fill banks inability to adapt. The rush of new startups and corporations is only beginning with more and more companies adding financial products. Most of these companies are betting on more of the banking aspect and less on the commerce aspect - Kickfurther is both. Come learn how the financial crisis created a multi-trillion dollar opportunity in technology, how Kickfurther operates (we have a hilarious skit) and check out our quirky office situated in an abandoned medical building right at the base of the Sanitas trailhead.

Growing businesses need financing. People are looking to grow their money. This is why we created Kickfurther. At Kickfurther we scale product businesses by crowdfinancing their inventory. As the inventory sells, users earn a profit that the businesses decide on the front-end. We have facilitated over $12M of fundraising for over 350 companies since launching in January of 2015. In that time our users have earned over $6M in payouts. A large amount of our companies raise their capital in under 60 seconds.

Bringing Things to Life: How We Approach IoT at Viget

A tap that magically starts pouring free beer. A brooch with its own hashtag and enough style to keep up with Johnny Weir. A former DJ booth that now spends its days forecasting the weather for any destination you desire. What do these seemingly disparate things have in common? They are all made possible by the Internet of Things. During this session, we'll talk about the IoT revolution, how connected devices can be used to solve real business problems in unique ways, and how Viget has brought a variety of hardware projects to life. We'll cover it all — the good, the bad, and the ugly wires that you have to hide. You'll even have the chance to tour our hardware lab and interact with our latest hardware experiments.

Starting an NPO Fundraising Platform from the Ground Up

TapKat is helping nonprofits do more good in the world by making online fundraising easier, faster, and more effective. Founders Steve Volk and Wendy Volan spent years running successful fundraising campaigns for the Shelby American Museum in the Boulder area using their own proprietary software application and business model. With six-digit proceeds, returning donors, and attention from the NPO community, TapKat realized they had a product that could help other NPOs achieve more success — but taking the concept from one static site and building a SaaS platform would require outside guidance from a strategic development partner.

TapKat will guide you through the challenges of launching a fundraising platform startup in less than a year, discuss how to choose and work with an outside development partner, and will demo the TapKat platform with a real-time fundraising scenario.
