Peggy Lyle, a long-time Startup Week content producer, event fan and director for the Downtown Fort Collins Creative District, said, “Startup Week is the most exciting week in Fort Collins for business owners and entrepreneurs, it’s like Christmas for entrepreneurs.  I love connecting with and hearing from others in the startup space; the networking I’ve been able to do at Startup Week has been taught me so many business best practices, given me tools to excel and I would highly recommend attending the etre week to anyone thinking of starting a business or anyone who already has. We are lucky to live in such a welcoming and collaborative ecosystem – take advantage of it!” Peggy helped organize this year’s “ARTup Week”, a track of Startup Week focusing on creative industry entrepreneurs and will be moderating a panel discussion about engaging in Fort Collins City Art Programs on Tuesday, February 27 at 12:00pm at the Carnegie Center for Creativity.
