Bacon at the 2012 Something Independent Entrepreneur Awards

October 3, 2012 Leave a comment

We were a proud sponsor for the 2012 Something Independent Entrepreneur Awards last night and Dave also had the honor of being one of the judges for the participants.

What is SIEA? Something Independent invited business from all around Colorado to compete for a grand prize of $1,500 in a video competition. More than that, to hold an event that would show case all the business and bring them them to the public attention. In their words: “Across Colorado there exists a distinct independent spirit that is nowhere more evident than in those Colorado entrepreneurs living at the intersection of business and lifestyle. In recognition of their commitment, their accomplishments and their passion…This is not a business plan competition. This is 90 seconds to make our judges believe in you.”

23 participants from all over Colorado participated, some were entrants from last year producing new videos for 2012:

(Active Junky, Alkaline, Apex Sports Group, Astis, Bould, condorcam, Denver Beer Co, Evol, Folsom, Grace, In the Soup, MHM, Mobile Canning, Oogave, Shredly, Oz Longboards, Pakems, Peakvibe, Skea, Snug Organics, Street Swell, White Girl Salsa, Wild Goose Canning)

It was a tremendous event, we had a great turn out here at Battery 621! The top three finalists were Apex Sports Group, Condorcam (our friend here at Batter and a returning finalist), and MHM (also a returning applicant). But there could only be one winner…

Playing for Change at Place Bridge Academy

April 9, 2012 Leave a comment

Did you all have a great time at our First Friday part last weekend? We were so excited to introduce everyone to Playing for Change through our close ties with the foundation! What you might not have known is that we also invited the two PFC band members, Jason Tamba & Mermans Mosengo, to visit Place Bridge Academy before coming to Battery 621 to jam out with you all. Place Bridge is a wonderful school that includes nine Newcomer Centers for English Language Learners. 30+ different languages and over 50 difference countries are represented in their student body! Also there were some of the staff and teachers from the amazing Flobots.org Foundation.

Mermans and Jason performed a number of wonderful songs you might have heard if you listen watch their YouTube videos as obsessively as we have been in our offices: Stand By Me, One Love…etc, but a personal favorite was a song that Jason wrote about finding wandering goats in the evening back in Congo. It was called “bahhhh.” It was so interesting to hear the stories their stories of growing up and how they began playing music.

They also played with the kids a lot. Above is one of the boys performing a song he wrote himself about not letting mean people bother you. Adorable.

 

Kids dancing and playing.

I hope you know better than to miss out on our great events  now!

Do you know what you’re doing on October’s First Friday (October 7th)?

Because I hope it’s coming to Battery 621 for our huge “Launch of Winter” blowout. I mean, obviously it is so I don’t even know why I’m bring it up.

(It starts at 6pm)

So can I talk about this hexadecimal clock screensaver?! I really like clocks, usually only analog, but every computer-geek should have and love this clock as their screensaver. It represents time as its hexadecimal color! Download this immediately.
