With us this week (Sept 2), Donald J. Mares (photo), President and C.E.O., Mental Health America of Colorado,, who will share his startup experience in public service and politics.

Join us to get help as you get started, to help yourself as you help others when you share your startup experience, to brainstorm,  and to exchange information about upcoming events and other resources.

More info and RSVP at

Our "reunion" meetings have gone so well, we've decided to encourage people to keep coming back, especially new comers as they get up and running, until they are just too busy to join us Friday afternoons. Also previous speakers and those who have attended in the past are invited any Friday that sharing startup experience will help give you a boost.

We'll try this new approach for a few weeks, hope you'll join us soon, experience the "new" Denve IDEA Cafe, and then let us know what you think of it.

We are now also using a written format for each meeting. That's to make it easier to rotate leadership, and to help people who are starting new groups. Each group is independent and may choose to change the format, of course.

If you'd be willing to help start a new IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop in cooperation with your local chamber of commerce, please contact John Wren at (303)861-1447 or

Also contact John if you'd like to start or join a Franklin Circle Peer Advisory Group.
