Gather with your people.
Meetups are a place for you to gather with people that are into something similar to you-- maybe you all geek out about technology, or you all like to think about HOW things are made-- either way, these are informal gatherings of like-minded folks. All meetups are totally free to attend and are open to anyone in the community-- you do not need to be a member and you are welcome to bring friends!
Meetups were one of the first types of programming we added at theCO and since our opening in 2014 -- their content continues to grow and adapt as much as the rest of theCO. Most of them have a framework of a topic each week so check-out details below to learn more and be sure to let us know if you have a meetup you'd like to lead!
Next Gathering: every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.

Book: Building A StoryBrand by Donald Miller | October 23 - Nov 13
Come to the Business Book Club to finally read that book you’ve had on the shelf and grow your business — in this first season we’ll be reading Building A StoryBrand. We’ll discuss the content of the book and then focus on practical ways to implement what we learned— we’ll also provide resource summaries. For the best experience, read over the first three chapters before the meeting. However, if you don’t get to read it or don’t even have the book, come anyways—you don’t have to read the book to benefit and contribute the conversation. Feel free to bring your lunch too!

marketing meetup: website audits
Next Gathering: Tuesdays, October 30th, November 13th and November 27th at 5:30 p.m.
Are you frustrated with the performance of your website? Maybe you’re slightly embarrassed to share your site with potential new customers? Or maybe you’re pretty proud of your website but it’s just not yielding the sales you’d like and you’re not sure why.
You aren’t alone. Many business owners struggle to have a great website that connects to their customer and makes sales. Join us for a website audit session to improve your site-- we’ll discuss what makes a website successful, review your site live on screen and offer takeaways that you can implement ASAP and we’ll wrap up with a Q & A session.
These audit sessions will be offered October 30th, November 13th and November 27th— please be sure to signup for the date you’re able to come!
