In 2017, the Boulder Economic Council of the Boulder Chamber launched the Boulder Innovation Venture. The goal was to benchmark the productivity of Boulder’s innovation economy and startup ecosystem compared to other leading entrepreneurial communities in the U.S.
The Boulder Innovation Venture initiative resulted in the publication of the inaugural Boulder Innovation Venture report in 2018. The first edition report generated a high volume of interest online, was cited in numerous media posts and articles, and it was presented at regional and international conferences.
Boulder Innovation Venture 2.0 is the second edition, with new and updated benchmark data and additional comparative communities. The report was launched at the 2020 Boulder Economic Forecast, which also featured presentations from CU Boulder's Dr. Richard Wobbekind and State Demographer Elizabeth Garner.
