Shaping the Next Generation of Center City Leaders

CityBuild Denver is a group of energetic individuals working to create a platform for Denver enthusiasts who span different industries and communities to come together and collaborate on big ideas that help shape and create a better Downtown Denver.

The Downtown Denver Partnership understands the important role attracting a young and diverse audience plays in creating a vital and vibrant center city. CityBuild acts as an inclusive community where Millennials can connect over one simple idea: “Denver is my home.” CityBuild Denver aims to educate these Denverites about city building techniques and provide them with the platform, connections and resources to create positive change within the center city.

The Downtown Denver Partnership engages the CityBuild community through a variety of innovative and engaging events throughout the year. From a pop-up dinner for 250 Denver enthusiasts to a thoughtful speaker series focused on timely issues affecting our center city, CityBuild provides a collection of events and opportunities for CityBuilders to learn something new, meet new people and get involved.

ABOUT CITYBUILD DENVER

Leadership Team

CityBuild is guided by a Leadership Team of Partnership members who have committed to a term of two years. The Leadership Team serves as the brain trust for the program and focus on ways to engage the CityBuild community. This group meets monthly to discuss the planning of upcoming CityBuild activities and programs.

Activators

This group is made up of over 150 CityBuilders who want to get more involved with the program beyond attending events and receiving our CityBuild email. They support the CityBuild Leadership Team, respond to calls to action and get access to special opportunities throughout the year.  This group serves as a segue into deeper involvement with the Partnership and CityBuild. The Activators convene monthly for special coffee meet-ups or happy hours. CityBuild Activators are sponsored by Capital One.
