Dear Friend,

Dr. Amar Bhide www.bhide.net will be with us in Denver this week on Thursday and Friday, April 23 and 24.

Dr. Bhide is the top expert in the world on the topic of startup.
His research over the past couple of decades has revealed some big surprises. His book The Origin and Evolution of New Business has been called the most important book ever written about startup by the publisher of Inc. Magazine. One columnist writing about his new book The Venturesome Economy called him the new Malcolm Gladwell. You have several opportunities to learn from his this week:

1) To hear Dr. Bhide talk about innovation and his new book The Venturesome Economy (Princeton University Press), you are welcome to join us Friday in the morning for the Daniels College of Business Power Breakfast. It's free and open to everyone (not just DU alumni), details (including a free parking pass!) and RSVP at http://www.daniels.du.edu/rsvp.aspx or call me with any questions at (303)861-1447

Thanks to the Denver Daily News and the Denver Lions Club for helping us get the word out about this!

2) Dr. Bhide will be our guest at the Denver IDEA Cafe in Friday afternoon. For this one time only, we will be meeting at the University of Denver, the location and link to a map are on the site when you RSVP. As always, we ask that you attend the IDEA Cafe only if you aren't sure what your are going to do on Monday morning as you start a new career, campaign, or new business. We are now limiting attendance to the first 14 to RSVP, so RSVP now to make sure you get a seat at http://www.meetup.com/Denver-IDEA-Cafe/calendar/9998584/

3) Finally, a few of us are getting together with Dr. Bhide for a no-host dinner at the Denver Press Club the evening before, email me if you'd like the details at John@JohnWren.com

4) I'll be arranging media interviews with Dr. Bhide throughout his time with us here in Denver, please forward this along to any report who you think might like to talk with him and/or who might like to attend any of these events.

One way or the other, I hope you'll take advantage of these great opportunities to learn from Dr. Bhide.

And please forward this email along to any of your family, friends, or business associates who might be interested in Dr. Bhide. They will thank you, and so will I if you'll let me now what you've done! Call me if you have any questions.

John
