Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Shifts, Trends, + Unicorns

Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Shifts, Trends, + Unicorns

A new age, heightened by the prospect for economic opportunities – unseen since the end of the Web 2.0 boom (2004 – 2008) – is dawning. Akin to the Industrial Revolution, innovators are charging ahead creating new technologies designed to meet the growing demands across a multitude of vertical markets.

As economic developers, we need to continue to support and advocate for the development of infrastructural and financial ecosystems to benefit these companies and ensure that Colorado’s entrepreneurs have every advantage to form, launch, and scale their businesses.

The Economic Development Council of Colorado (EDCC) assembled a panel of five experts to provide perspectives on the needs and barriers along a startup’s journey to become a thriving business. Barriers and challenges to accessing markets, early-stage funding, and essential infrastructure improvements topped the list of challenges that confront new and expanding businesses as we rebuild and recover from the economic downturn brought on by the pandemic.

Come examine with us the shifts and trends that are affecting Colorado’s startup ecosystem and learn what is needed for these startups to become unicorns in Colorado’s post-pandemic entrepreneurial ecosystem.
