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…

Movin’ On Up: BWBacon Gets New Digs!

We are extremely pleased to announce that, as of 6/15/2011, BWBacon are the newest tenants in Denver’s illest creative collaborative community, Battery621, located at 621 Kalamath Street in the Santa Fe Art District. 

Battery621 is much more than a building; it is an entirely new way of looking at business partnerships, social outreach, environmental sustainability and engaging clients with products and services. We look at every vendor and client in a complete circle of thinking and brand strategies. We have a tenant tell is that on their first day of doing business in Battery621 another tenant connected them with a new job. The unique mix of clients has been formed to create synergies for not only the companies within but for all of the stakeholders in 621. Under one roof we are able to do everything from ideation of brand building initiatives to product photography, TV commercials, fabrication and full international PR campaigns. While we are proud of our tenant partners we also understand this is merely the tip of the iceberg in pursuing our founding principal of 1+1=3. We are focused on finding new partners and creating something larger than either could do solely.

In the short time that Battery621 has been open, we’ve have seen new tenants come on board and have gotten close to a hanging a “no vacancy” sign. Existing tenants have expanded and grabbed more space, while continuously looking for outside companies looking for creative ways to partner up. Battery621 will strive to continuously improve the business and social environment of the building. We will also look to increase the energy of the building by bringing a diverse mix of events, art installations and business meetings. The goal always has been and will be to create the best business environment but encouraging creativity while understanding that this can only happen when our stake-holders quality of life has been improved. Business should be fun. We are having a LOT OF FUN.”
