What Does it Take to Make Your Startup Succeed?

Are you toying with the idea of launching your own business? Perhaps you’ve already gotten the ball rolling but still have some questions about Denver’s startup culture? If your creativity doesn’t fit a corporate environment, join the BMA YPs to hear from the city’s elite entrepreneurs who are making their names known in the local consumer retail space.

Our incredible panelists are here to answer your questions, share their stories and inspire us on how being a tad unconventional has helped them succeed! Our panel will include the brains behind Hailee Grace and Spruce!

As a special gift from our panelists, stick around for a raffle at the end of the event where you’ll have a chance to win a gift bag from Hailee Grace, a gift card from Spruce, or Denver-made peanut butter from our recent BMA YP guests PB Love! Who doesn’t love free swag??

Spruce’s mission is to empower men so they feel great & look great from head to toe. They achieve it by providing a high education / low judgment atmosphere, offering an array of classy, stylish casual + footwear, as well as hair, beard and other grooming products. Spruce is a style consultancy + barber + clothier for men. Spruce has been open for just a year and has already become a hot commodity in the area, not just for their service offerings, but for their tech and design in shop.
