Announcing: Collabortank and “Game Changers: A Seminar for Entrepreneurs, Students, & Startups”

While Boise has been the hub for the startup community of Idaho, we have recognized a real need for a training program that meets entrepreneurs, students, and startups at a customized level to suite their development. Applications to the Collabortank program are open now, and anyone interested in creating a product or launching a company is welcome to apply at (apply here).


In order to celebrate the coming launch, and to give a taste as to what is to come at Collabortank, Prodromos Marketing and Boise State University Center for Entrepreneurship are hosting a seminar and mixer titled “Game Changers: A Seminar for Entrepreneurs, Students, & Startups” at Skaggs Hall of Learning in the Micron Business and Economics Building on the Boise State Campus. The Seminar will feature five notable authors from 3-6 PM followed by refreshments and a mixer from 3-9 PM.


Through Collabortank’s three unique areas—The Tank, The Learning Lab, and The Startup Pad—we can give training and opportunity to not only established brands and startup companies, but create the platform for solo-entrepreneurs and students to realize the freedom of self-direction and create products, companies, and a future. Since the program is designed to deliver what you need when you need it, it is also possible to achieve your startup goals before making the leap from employee to entrepreneur.


Leading Collabortank’s efforts in Boise are Philip Bennett and his Executive Advisory Team: Elizabeth Sendelbach, Bill Parsons, Mark Fackrell, Robert Orcutt, & Malorie Bennett (co-founder). Philip Bennett is a passionate entrepreneur that has started and operated 9 service companies and is currently the founder and CEO of 3 tech companies. He is working hard to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem here in Boise, and believes Boise can be the next tech startup cluster people are talking about nationally. The collective experience of the advisory team gives a wide berth of knowledge from education at Boise State University and high level project management, to financial analysis and executive positions that really provide the insight into creating a successful organization.
