Get your geek on! The GoCode Colorado Roadshow will be coming to Colorado Springs on Wednesday, March 2.
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams will be joining local techies to talk about this year’s GoCode challenge at Episouthcentral, located at 1604 S Cascade Ave., from 6 to 8 p.m. Drinks and food will be provided at the free event, where questions will be answered about this year’s challenge.
For the unfamiliar, GoCode is an award-winning, statewide business app challenge, in which teams from cities across the state compete to develop apps that solve real business problems. Hosted through the Secretary of State’s office, the challenge brings together teams of developers and entrepreneurs.
Judges whittle the field of teams, and the two best teams from each location are sent to a mentor weekend (this year’s is in Boulder), where they meet with some of the state’s top entrepreneurs, lawyers, and others. Finally, the three top teams are selected, and each are awarded a $25,000 prize to keep their app and business idea going.
Registration is open for the challenge, which begins on the weekend of April 1-3, at http://gocode.colorado.gov/
