“LSW (Longmont Startup Week) is thematically organized around five key pillars: leadership, technology, funding, creativity, and operations. By having presenters touch on these topics, we believe that we are addressing the challenges facing startups in our community. LSW is about inspiration, motivation, and education...these are the tools grounding entrepreneurs, their mentors, and the LSW,” according to the event spokesperson.
