We talk to the founders of an economic development platform that aims to help local creative entrepreneurs build viable businesses from their craft.

On our recent trip to Denver, we met Brian Corrigan and Samuel Schimek, co-founders of Yes Please More, an economic development platform that aims to help local artists, designers, and other creative entrepreneurs showcase, fund, and build viable businesses from their craft. Yes Please More’s most recent project – a unique pop-up ‘souvenir shop’ housed in one of the growing number of vacant retail spaces in Denver Pavilions – features 100% Colorado designed goods, like handcrafted furniture, jewelry (including rings made from real hose clamps – a lovely invention of a local Denver jeweler), evocative portraits of the Coloradoan skyline, and other generally affordable goods with a regional bent.
