Sheridan Ross was proud to host the July 2015 Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network (BEN) Company Sessions event at our Denver office. BEN is designed to help connect the state’s best entrepreneurs and scale-up experts with one another to collaborate, as well as to identify, promote, assist, and connect high-growth, high-prospect private firms in the technology, health, aerospace, energy, and natural foods and products industries.
Positioned as an audition for the business entrepreneurs, BEN advisors get a chance to evaluate prospects, provide feedback and offer to engage with next steps in the business/technology if interested.
More than 20 advisors, including Sheridan Ross Shareholder Sarah Schneider, participated in the July session which featured presentations from three emerging, Colorado-based companies: SchoolRunner, SomaLogic, and Madhava. Other notable BEN companies include Craftsy, PING Identity, and Cool Planet.
“This is an incredible opportunity to showcase the creativity, passion and innovation of Colorado entrepreneurs,” said Sarah Schneider. “BEN is designed to provide access to the resources and Networks entrepreneurs need to scale up in Colorado by matching cross-industry and cross-geography relationships.”
We look forward to the opportunity to be a part of the BEN Advisors and to hosting future events at our Denver and Broomfield offices.
