“This year we are planning to expand Made In Loveland Week to the full month of February. We will have speakers on Wednesdays and Fridays in the mornings and evenings. We hope that this allows for more of the community to attend our incredible lineup of speakers. Right now we have around 20 speakers on the docket,” says Betty Maisenbach, Marketing Director at desk chair Workspace.

desk chair is working with the Made In Loveland organization to resurrect the program in 2020. “We believe in what Made In Loveland stands for and think that desk chair embodies the mission completely.  Maisenbach says, “we didn’t want to see another year go by without such a great event.”

“Start up weeks are such a great opportunity to create community. In the past I have loved attending start up week in Fort Collins, and Made in Loveland a couple of years ago.  My biggest goal for this event is to encourage entrepreneurship and connect the local restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops to our fun month-long event!” says Jessie Rule, Event Director at desk chair workspace.

This year, lectures will cover such topics as “So You want to be an Entrepreneur,” “Show Me the Money, Fundraising and Financing,” “Story Brand,” and “From the Brink of Failure, to Victory! A Software Success Story.”

“We are thrilled to host Made in Loveland at desk chair workspace this year.  The speaker line-up is full of experts in their given field, with a ton of experience and wisdom to share with entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs.

So, you want to be an Entrepreneur

There are many myths and misconceptions about being an Entrepreneur. This talk explores some of the common myths and misconceptions of a startup business and provides some personal advice. The talk really speaks to the early stages of forming a startup and is not a comprehensive guide but rather a primer on forming and starting the path to a successful startup.

Working on a startup takes a lot of work and dedication; there is no way around that fact. But it all does not have to be arduous, it is also a lot of fun and learning along the way.

With the right level of expectations, a view to the challenges ahead, working on starting your own business is invigorating and rewarding.

Clarity Is Key-A look at the StoryBrand Framework

Clarify your message and stop wasting money on marketing

When it comes to communication and marketing many Brands struggle to get the right words to effectively communicate about their products, services, or organizations. The StoryBrand Framework helps you discover what others are looking for so you can tell your story in a way that makes people actually listen. The human brain is drawn to CLARITY and away from confusion. If you confuse your customers they will pass you buy for someone who is communicating clearer. In this session, we will give you an introduction to the StoryBrand Framework so you can begin to clarify your message and get your customers, donors, event attendees or any audience to respond.

You will walk away with a whole new view of your communication strategy and be able to start applying what they have learned that day. We will also help you develop a oneliner/30 second commercial for your company, cause, or organization that you can begin to use right away.

 

Most Brands waste enormous amounts of money on ineffective marketing. Ian is the Strategy & Creative Director of Root Source Digital and has over 10 years of experience helping organizations of all sizes, and industries create clarity in their messaging and produce content that creates growth. Building a foundation for your messaging is the key to success for any organization in any industry. Using a proven marketing framework Ian and Root Source Digital have helped companies in being purchased by Venture Capital, helped nonprofits exceed their fundraising goals, and increase sales for many small businesses. Ian lives in Loveland with his wife Katie and their four children.
