Come check out some of the Mile High City’s most promising and innovative startup companies at the Founder Institute’s Denver Demo Day on Tuesday, March 13 from 5 to 9 p.m. at INDUSTRY RiNo Station (3858 Walnut St.).

The Founder Institute, the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program, puts on a demanding but rewarding three-month, part-time program during which promising startup entrepreneurs “learn by doing” and prepare to launch a company. The program is graduating its latest Denver cohort and inviting angels, venture capitalists, media, mentors, the general public and you to see presentations from recent graduates and learn about the diverse businesses that they are building.

Since first launching in Denver in 2010, the Denver Founder Institute alone has produced nearly 80 local technology companies, including businesses like CipherPoint, BlogMutt and more. Nationally, the Founder Institute has produced graduate companies that have raised more than $600 million.

During the program, startups and entrepreneurs are provided with the tools they need — structured training courses, practical business-building assignments, mentor support, a global network of entrepreneurs, expert guidance and feedback from a large network of business mentors — to successfully launch a technology company.
