Matt (Handshakin) Holmes


Handshakin Holmes claims entrepreneurs succeed through immersion in an entrepreneurial community, gathering feedback with industry experts, and building relationships with world-class mentors. After half a decade living in Denver and over half a decade of launching startups, the Handshakin Video Series interviews Colorado's most successful entrepreneurs on how shaking hands and personal relationships played into their success. Headquartered in a city that Forbes calls the second best place to launch your startup, he also launched Colorado's first Startup Pre-accelerator and organizes Startup Denver. Colorado might be known as the best place for pot smoking, outdoorsy younger folks; but we pack a hard punch backed with the authority of uncountable successful startups.

With news sources like Business Insider predicting that 40% of the American workforce will be freelancers, contractors, and temporary workers by 2020, the average American should learn how to make their own money right now. There are many quality resources, tools, and expert advice out there and we want to organize and share it with aspiring entrepreneurs, enabling them to chase their dreams.
