Glen X is a co-working space and business incubator in Carbondale. They’re hosting an event Friday with Roaring Fork Leadership where local entrepreneurs will make their cases to investors.
There’s a woman developing a public-speaking app, a runner who takes other runners on running vacations around the world and a farmer establishing an agritourism business.
These are a few of the eight entrepreneurs who will pitch their businesses to a room full of investors and anyone else who wants to come watch.
Many are in Glen X’s business accelerator program and have honed their craft with a mentor. Glen X president Altai Chuloon said the program is for entreprenuers who "already have traction, who’ve already started. [We] just basically help them along [and help them] scale their business and grow more exponentially."
The event starts at 3 p.m. with workshops at the Third Street Center. The pitching will start around 6 p.m.
