Add to your calendar
Date: January 29, 8:30 am
Location: Brick Cellar in Gunnison
Details: Do you make something? 

Art.  Organizations.  Gardens.  Experiences.  Social Ventures.  Food.  Inspiration.  Music.  Investments.  Leaders.  Websites.  Snowboards.  Positive Change.  Policy.  Connections.  Beauty.  Homes.  Festivals.  Furniture.  Adventures.  Code.  Jobs.  Culture.  Bicycles.  Progress.  Coffee.  Stories.  Community.  A Difference.  

Makers build, hack, tweak, share, and discover for the sheer enjoyment of building, hacking, tweaking, sharing, and discovering.  They do while others talk.  You know the type.  Does this describe you?  Does this describe someone you know?

Let’s connect our local MountainMakers.  You are invited to the next monthly MountainMaker Meetup to discuss how we can inspire, connect, and empower this uniquely innovative, creative, and entrepreneurial culture within our mountain community.  Join local creatives, entrepreneurs, artists, coders, musicians, changemakers, localists, crafters, designers, innovators, and dreamers for an gathering of possibilities.

Join us Wednesday, January 29th, from 8:30am to 10:30am at the Brick Cellar in Gunnison.  We meet every fourth Wednesday in Gunnison.    

The discussion format of these events will be an 'open spaces' meetup, so ideas and topics will be proposed on site from the individuals present. As long as we all share a vested interest in sharing thoughts about common questions/goals, then we'll produce some valuable outcomes. Some of the topics discussed at past events and our partner Crested Butte Business Opportunity Conferences have gained momentum in recent weeks, so you might meet others interested in discussing coworking spaces, local entrepreneurship, and existing and needed resources. If something is on your mind, you're probably not alone, so these could be the forums to get a conversation started.

Please invite others who may be interested in joining us!  For more information, please contact Christopher Greene at christophergreene@gmail.com.

MountainMaker Meetups are an Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship (ICE) Project in partnership with Western State Colorado University.
