Next week is Denver StartUp week. Let's go out and celebrate one of the biggest event in the tech/ design. A lot of you have mention that it would be nice to have a group to go together. We have created this event for fellow designers to meet each other at the kickoff party so that you have a wingman/ wingwomen to go off to mix and mingle with the rest of party goers. The party starts at 6, we'll meet at 6:30 and go from there.
Register here if you haven't.
