In addition to fun, food and festivities, Arrow experts will be on hand to answer questions about the company’s new collaboration with Indiegogo.

In addition, Arrow-Certified campaigns on Indiegogo are eligible to receive a share of $1 million in flash-funding from Arrow.*
“Arrow is bringing its unparalleled design-to-production engine—used by the largest companies, creating some of the most sophisticated new technologies—to the world of crowdfunding. With Arrow’s dedicated support and expertise, promising startups can get their technology to market faster and easier than ever before,” said Matt Anderson, Arrow’s chief digital officer.
“There is so much exciting innovation happening right in our own background—I’m really looking forward to catching up with and meeting new Denver-area entrepreneurs and finding ways that Arrow can help make their ideas a reality,” continued Anderson.
Arrow will give away hundreds of Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers at the Opening Party. In addition to sponsoring the party, Arrow is a Design Track sponsor of Denver Startup Week.
