The 2nd Annual Denver Power Partners Summit is coming October 12

CU South Denver: 10035 S. Peoria Street, Lone Tree, CO 80134

America's Largest Gathering to Connect, Match and Fund Solopreneurs
with Intergenerational Partners and Investors

As a solopreneur, I attended last year’s event thinking it was just another Denver networking opportunity. Boy was I wrong! Prior to the Summit, I was thinking I could build my business on my own. After the Summit, I was much more aware of what it takes to find and attract a co-founder; especially one from a different generation.
— Jan Golden, Founder, iPhone Savvy

Did You Know?

Ever heard of Dropbox? We all have. We probably use it every day. But did you know that before founder Drew Houston was accepted to Y Combinator to fund his project, they asked him to have a business partner? They had to see that more people than just the founder believed in the idea and were ready to put their money where their mouths were. 

FACT: 65% of startups fail because of not having the right co-founders

FACT: Teams with 2 or more co-founders outperformed solo founders (solopreneurs) by 163%


Why?

Why Intergenerational-teamed Startups?

Research shows that one of the top reasons startups fail is not having the right team. Often, it’s about a lack of diversity in the team.

When we think about diversity, we often think about race and gender. There’s another, often overlooked component of diversity that every startup can use to become more credible, more impactful, and more successful… generational diversity!

Intergenerational startups with co-founder teams foster diversity in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. These differences yield smarter decisions, better cash management, and more innovation in bringing products and services to market.

There's no other conference where solopreneurs from four generations can:

meet and learn from each other

pitch to attendees and angels

get advice from angel investors on why intergenerational teams are more successful than solopreneurs
