EntConnect (Previously ME Ski and then EntCon) initially started in 1992 as a gathering of subscribers to the ‘Midnight Engineering’ magazine. Midnight Engineering was a magazine that targeted engineers who, while working a day job, started their own projects and companies in the evening.
While the magazine’s publishing stopped in the early 2000’s, the meeting of entrepreneurial engineers continues as EntConnect. The attendees take time to meet each other on the ski slopes, take tours of entrepreneurial ventures in the Denver area, and share their successes and war stories.
The small nature of the conference (~50 people) allows for developing solid relationships and fosters candid discussions that would otherwise not be reasonable in a more public setting.
