The Wright Listening Tour – Live from West Slope Startup Week

“Across the country, in towns outside the media spotlight, a new America is being built - one that is innovative, compromise-minded, optimistic, and working toward practical solutions to the problems of this age.” – Our Towns, James & Deborah Fallows

Real people and forward-thinking communities are at the heart of this essential exploration of Western Colorado’s evolving economic and cultural landscape. The Wright Listening Tour sits down with place-makers of the west slope for a wide-ranging look at how together we can shape the conditions for collaboration, growth and opportunity across Colorado’s diverse rural communities.

West Slope Startup Week marks the first live and in-person edition of The Wright Listening Tour, which kicked-off in spring 2021 with a virtual conversation with U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper (CO) and a panel of rising entrepreneurs representing rural communities across Colorado.

We invite you to join us for this special live-edition of The Wright Listening Tour @ West Slope Startup Week. Our panel includes:

Natalie Binder, Co-Founder / CampV & WE arts
Jason Blevins, Journalist / Colorado Sun
Tina Ooley, Founder / EveryPedal MTB
Sarah Shrader, Owner & Co-Founder / Bonsai Design + Program Director / Colorado Mesa University’s Outdoor Industry Studies Program
Chuck Sullivan, Executive Director, The Wright -- Moderator

Please note this event is occurring IN-PERSON ONLY and will not be broadcast virtually. Thank you!
