To our friends, supporters, and community:

Won't You Join Us?

We cordially invite you to learn more about our exciting organization at a fundraising dinner Wednesday, June 21st at 7:00pm at Pinons Restaurant.

A portion of your dinner bill will go to Aspen Entrepreneurs. There is no entry price or mandatory donation, though additional donation will be appreciated.

Please RSVP here.

In our time in Aspen we have done, worked on, and invested in many things, but few have brought us as much fulfillment as our work here with Aspen Entrepreneurs.

Aspen Entrepreneurs is a community building organization that identifies local problems. Young people are leaving, we are not attracting top talents, and as a result, local business is suffering and the character and vitality of our town eroding.

Aspen Entrepreneurs works to reverse these trends by investing in tomorrow's leaders. We invest capital, expertise, and resources to help young entrepreneurs succeed locally in the retail, hospitality and service industries. By embracing our history, leaning into the Aspen Idea, and bringing the best resources to bear we are helping create a better Aspen.

We have already had 14 local companies through our programs including BLK MKT, Messenger Aspen, Heirloom Vintage, and the (soon opening!) Maker + Place. We have hosted Showcase events that feature local legends like Jerry Murdock, Rick Crandall, and George Stranahan.

This summer, we are taking it to the next level, opening our fist street-level experience in the old HUB bike shop. Aspen Entrepreneurs will open our doors July 1st in conjunction with the launch of our third group of "co-celerating" businesses. Here we will feature these six-to-eight companies who will work in the space (come meet them!), as well as provide a space limited co-working experience, and a variety of events, workshops, and classes that the whole community can enjoy.  

We need you to help make this possible. Aspen Entrepreneurs need mentors, experts, supporters, and of course funding. As hard-working entrepreneurs and business people, we know we only get out what we put in!

So join us Wednesday night, June 21st at 7:00pm, at Pinons Restaurant for a beautiful dinner where you can meet our entrepreneurs, see the plans for our summer space, and meet our leadership team and board of directors. We know you will want to be part of this family... It's pretty amazing. Please RSVP here.
