DENVER START UP WEEK /// Do More Together Panel: Making the Most of Your Business Friendships

What do pickles, zines, The Stanley Marketplace, digital storytelling, yoga, and sourdough have in common? Not much actually, except for when spun together into creative and unexpected business collaborations.

Networking might look different than you think. Come experience different perspectives on what it really means “to network,” and hear stories about the (sometimes-unlikely) connections and collaborations that come out of meaningful business friendships.

Then join us at the end of the session for Flow + Dough— a fun & funky yoga meets bread collaboration with Betterish and Rebel Bread.
