How Good Branding and Public Relations Can Help Your Startup with Alison Werning and Mary Cochran, co-founders of Launching Labs Marketing

Branding and public relations can be a mystery to business owners. Many questions arise from business owners like:
- Should I get a logo off the internet or pay for one? How to decide?
- What should I look for expect?
- Do I need a news release? Why where does it go? Is that all I need to get in print, radio or TV?
- What do I get for my money?
- What can I do myself?

Second Annual 4GenNow Power Partners Summit: Early Bird Attendees

Second Annual 4GenNow
Power Partners Summit

Friday, October 12, 2018

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

South Denver – University of Colorado

10035 S Peoria St, Parker, CO 80134

Today, we're excited to open early bird sales for Denver's only Intergenerational Entrepreneurship Summit at CU South Denver and reveal a taste of what we’re planning!

Studies show that angel investors prefer to invest in startups with two or more co-founders with complementary skills and experiences. Intergenerational co-founder teams foster diversity in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. These differences yield smarter decisions, better cash management, and creative innovation that results in bringing needed products and services faster and more successfully to market.

4GenNow’s mission is connecting four generations of entrepreneurs: Gen Z, Millennial, Gen X and Baby Boomer, to connect and create intergenerational team startups for greater success.

A Summit of Opportunity!

At last year’s Summit at the University of Denver we had over 225 attendees who shared ideas, participated in roundtable discussions and most importantly, made valuable intergenerational connections through the Summit’s many networking opportunities to move their ideas and established businesses to the next step.

There simply is no other conference where intergenerational entrepreneurs can connect, learn, and get advice from investors on what they look for in intergenerational co-founders and why investors believe intergenerational teams are more successful than solopreneurs.

Some testimonials from our 2017 4GenNow Denver Summit:

Joyce Feustal
Founder, Boomers’ Social Media Tutor

We had time to go and find our potential partners from other generations, and I was happy to share some LinkedIn tips as one of the table discussion offerings. The overall vibe was excellent, and all my invitees, including my clients had a blast!

Michael Knight
CEO, Prime Capital Connections

I would venture to say that 4GenNow did not drop a ‘Pebble in the Pond’ in Denver, but rather a large boulder in a very large pool of entrepreneurial zeitgeist, representing the tip of the iceberg of what is going on in the startup communities in the U.S. and other countries as well. This was a renaissance of creativity, collaboration and impactful new ideas and inventions.

Meghan Larson
Co-Founder, Adistry

Many other events that I have attended ended up being superficial time wasting affairs. 4GenNow was the complete opposite as it was worth every moment. I am looking forward to their next event!

Member Spotlight: Cassy Huidobro from 4GenNow Denver Chapter

Cassy Huidobro is a published author, TEDx Speaker and Diversity Consultant by Day, and a Bilingual Instructional Designer and Content Writer by night.

Cassy was born in Peru and grew up in the United States. Growing up, she’d ask questions to the adults in charge about race, discrimination and divisive issues our society faces. She was told not to ask those types of questions or received vague answers.

Her book, is anyone else feeling the same way? Touches on some of these uncomfortable questions, and her recent TEDx Talk in Colorado Springs is about dissolving our racial divide.

As an adult, Cassy started a video blog of uncomfortable questions to get some of the answers our society lacks, by going directly to what she calls “the source.” The source are the people who have the most knowledge about these questions and can provide answers from their unique point of view.

Cassy holds a Master’s Degree of Languages and Literature from the University of Utah, and is committed to dissipate ignorance with education. Only then, she says, we’ll see each other for who we really are: Human.

As an instructional designer, Cassy creates training manuals for small businesses and corporations. She says:

“Excellent copy makes all the difference. It’s a pleasure working for companies who understand the value of on-brand, accurate copy. It’s important to me that the written word is conveyed perfectly for businesses. Whether the writing needs to be formal or informal, the message should never get lost.”

Cassy is also building her own curriculum on diversity and is committing to eradicating our major divisions in the next two generations. Ask Cassy all about it!
