Business Insider: 'Introducing Colorado Entrepreneurial By Nature'

Quoting from the Business Insider article by Seth Levine, managing director at Foundry Group:

"Today we’re launching Colorado Entreprenurial by Nature – a grass roots campaign created by a handful of entrepreneurs in our community to show support of that ecosystem. The goal is simple. We’re giving members of our community an easy way of showing their pride in the entrepreneurial community we’re building in our state. We hope that this will help us both encourage entrepreneurship in our community and attract new entrepreneurs to come to Colorado to start their businesses.

Joining is easy. Head to the Colorado Entrepreneurial by Nature website and download the badge (it comes in a number of different colors and sizes). Display it proudly on your company or personal website. We’ve made some stickers up as well which you can fly proudly on your laptop/car/bike/etc. They’ll be showing up around Denver and Boulder at a handful of coffee shops and other places where entrepreneurs congregate.

If you feel the way I do about Colorado – about living here and working here to support entrepreneurship – I hope you’ll join me in the movement."

Quoting from the recent online posting (CCS Adoption Manager Abbi Collins visited with Susan Daffron, Founder, National Association of Pet Rescue Professionals on behalf of the radio network):

"Susan Daffron talks to Abbi Collins from the Cat Care Society in Colorado about a female buff and white tabby named P.J. who is available for adoption. P.J. is a sweet cat who loves to cuddle up with people. She's a bit shy at first, but warms up to people once she has spent a little time with them...Abbi is hoping that P.J. can find a home where she can be the only cat. Once you meet P.J. you'll find out why she's a special girl who deserves a kind and caring family to love her."

Bell Aquaculture is exhibiting its new OMRI-Listed 'Fish Rich Organic 2-2-2 Fertilizer' at the 2012 Garden Writers Association (GWA) Annual Symposium October 12-15 in Tucson, Booth #302. The announcement is made by Norman McCowan, president of Bell Aquaculture, who says, "Fish have been used as soil fertilizer since the Native Americans first began farming our nearby land centuries ago. Our organic plant fertilizer, currently marketed as Fish Rich, is made from the remains of the Bell Perch processed at our aquaculture facility in Indiana."

Fish Rich has already been tested by a number of gardening writers and bloggers since launching at the National Hardware Show in May. According to McCowan, the GWA Symposium will give even more writers and bloggers the opportunity to become acquainted firsthand with Bell Aquaculture's new fish-based organic fertilizer.
