Loveland Startup Week began in 2015 thanks to the efforts of an organization that was being formed at that time, Made in Loveland. Below is a excerpt from the Made in Loveland website that succinctly describes their mission.
“Made in Loveland began in early 2015 with the desire of a few entrepreneurs to build connections between fellow entrepreneurs in Loveland. It began as a grassroots organization with a simple premise of entrepreneurs wanting to help entrepreneurs start or scale their businesses. Through a mix of education, collective knowledge sharing, and community building, the group seeks to build a stronger ecosystem where entrepreneurs can thrive.”

In addition to the broad range of hands-on workshops, classes and networking opportunities, this year they are also experimenting with an Arts Track. Their website describes this experiment as being “more participatory and interactive than last year, with in-the-round discussions, panels, and workshops. The sessions will be longer, with time for quiet talk and interaction – good things emerging from the primordial schmooze. The broad theme is “A Renaissance in Your Arts Career”: the sessions explore opportunities to grow, change directions, find new collaborators, use technology in your art, reach new markets.”
