Issue Media Group has launched Confluence
, a new weekly publication about the people, ideas and innovators that are making Denver, CO a world-class creative city. With a focus on entrepreneurship, startups, placemaking and arts and culture, Confluence strives to highlight Denver's game changers. Its first issue was published Nov. 14, 2012.
Major partners include the Downtown Denver Partnership, Bonfils-Stanton, the Denver Theatre District, and several educational institutions.
Tamara Door, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership, hopes the site will help make Denver more attractive to young, creative talent, reports the Denver Business Journal.
"It will certainly be a battle for the best and brightest employees, and it will be a battle, too, to attract residents into the city," says Door. "We believe it’s the key to economies of the future."
"People think of Denver as a great city with mountains," said IMG co-founder and co-CEO Brian Boyle, a former Denver resident. "But people don't know about its urban spaces. Denver's really misunderstood in that respect."
Confluence will cover small-scale changes and projects that add create a picture of Denver's vibrance and growth.
Confluence is led by managing editor Ivy Hughes, a Colorado native whose works has appeared in Entrepreneur
, Next American City
, the Boston Globe
and the Northern Colorado Business Report.
She's joined by managing photographer Kara Pearson Gwinn, innovation and job news editor Eric Peterson, and development news editor Margaret Jackson.
