Join us for this welcome event to have some coffee and talk about Machine Learning. Get to know the community of people who are working on Machine Learning around Boulder.
Join for this biased presentation of state of the world of ML platform, how different OSS technologies are shaping the ML Infrastructure landscape, and wether it makes sense to use some of them earlier or later as your ML platform. This talk will be pretty biased on my own experiences, so take with a grain of salt, but come join as I introduce you to some of the technologies I have worked with and listen to some of my experience with them.
Join us for a lively discussion on how to fundraise for your startup. You'll leave with a better understanding of what it means to fundraise for your startup, what investors are looking for, how to raise your first few rounds of capital and some special insider tips and tricks. I've helped over 100 companies raise collectively almost $1B in capital and I'll share many learnings and answer your questions in hopes of helping you navigate the VC world.
Are you new to town? Want to meet others into startups and new as well? This hour session is focused on building community of the next members of our community. We will head out to dinner after the session and you are welcome!

OAuth is a well known standard and is useful for delegating authentication and authorization decisions to a central identity provider. As a developer, you’ve given a token when a grant completes.
But what happens then? This talk will discuss client and server side code and logic needed when calling an API after you have a token. This will include how to store a token in the API client and what your API code should examine when presented with a token.
3 of HEC Montreal's best entrepreneurial teams will pitch in front of a group of Boulder SAGE advisors and get live feedback. Pitching is hard enough in your first language, but these French speakers are pitching in English. This was a great event last BSW and they are back for more.

Presenting: fyiio - Product training/onboarding platform
fyiio, https://fyi.io - Alex Kuklinski presenting, is a how-to platform sold B2B empowering companies to create, place, and maintain accessible learning experiences that show the world how to do anything.
(Note: Event will be In-Person only and part of Boulder Startup Week)
Creating tutorials is complicated, expensive, and time-intensive to maintain for rapidly-evolving products. It requires that companies learn, use, and maintain several different platforms. Ones that might not be tailorable to an individual’s attention span, learning preference, and accessibility needs. Fyiio’s Tutorial Builder makes instructional design accessible, content distribution simple, and updating content painless by synchronizing changes across multiple distribution channels. Our Tutorial Player caters to the four primary types of learners, translates itself to a person's preferred language, and can be embedded nearly anywhere to be as accessible as possible.
We’re revenue-generating now and are being used in automotive, eCom, food safety, and AgTech. We have four granted U.S. Patents on our approach to creating, presenting, interacting with, and finding tutorials.
Our current target market is B2B SaaS companies with 10+ employees and a rapidly growing product and customer base. We're also planning an expansion to include Creators, maker spaces and co-working spaces.
Startup and social impact veterans demystifies the give-back process and shows how everyone can harness the power to do good while supercharging their lives and drive business.
