Frank Denbow, Founder, StartupThreads

Who doesn’t know Frank Denbow? A developer and entrepreneur, anyone who knows Denbow knows that true passion is music (as it has to do with technology, of course).

An early participant (and mentor) for StartupWeekend NYC, back in the early days, before SUW became a global phenomenon, it wasn’t long before he was lead organizer for the event. He curates the weekly Startup Digest NYC, he’s founder of Startup Threads, a merchandising solution for startups and events, providing the designing, production, and distribution of promotional items.

A graduate of Carnegie Mellon with a degree in computer science, if you had to describe Denbow in a word, it would be ‘passionate.’ In fact, one of the things that he’s extremely passionate about is exposing more K-12 students to computer science, which he does through such programs as CampInteractive and Academy For Software Engineering.

He’ll be heading off to participate in Startup Chile for the next six months (and still in touch with NYC via the Digest), but he’ll be back. And we’ll be happy to see his smiling face again when he is…because he’s always Frank and unfailingly awesome!

Keep up with Frank:
