ForceBrands was in Boulder, Colo., on November 8 for a CPG in BLD event that highlighted the latest industry happenings in what’s considered America’s startup city. The annual networking mixer, hosted by ForceBrands, AVL Growth Partners, and Interact Boulder, brought together thought leaders and community members for an evening of creativity, inspiration, and conversation.


“Our mixer was an incredible gathering of over 100 entrepreneurs, brand leaders, investors, mentors, and friends who came together to make meaningful connections and share ideas over a craft beer and warm empanadas on a chilly night in Boulder,” Diana Mercer, ForceBrands’ Senior Client Strategist and Executive Recruiter, said. “People from Ridgeline Ventures, Greenmont Capital, Justin’s, Bobo’s, 34-Degrees, Fresca Foods, Love Grown, Dang Foods, Good Karma, 1908 Brands, and so many other key brands gathered at Sanitas Taproom to represent the Boulder food startup community.”

Prior to the event, ForceBrands interviewed leaders in the space for an upcoming video series that will profile industry experts in hot spot cities for emerging brands. ForceBrands sat down with Justin Gold, CEO and Founder of Justin’s; Steve Hughes, CEO and Co-Founder of Sunrise Strategic Partners; Carlotta Mast, Senior VP of Content and Insights at New Hope Network; and Todd Woloson, Co-Founder of IZZE, and Managing Director at Greenmont Capital Partners.
