The Colorado Technology Association (CTA) is traveling across Colorado July 20-24 to gather input, listen and learn from tech communities outside Denver and Boulder. CTA’s offices are located in Denver, but members are scattered across the state and CTA staff wants to get to know them better, according to a news release sent last week by the CTA. The primary goal of the Colorado Tech Tour is to gather insight on how the technology industry impacts – or could impact – each local economy.
The CTA will be joined by Colorado Innovation Network (COIN), Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, Governor’s Office of Information Technology and Go Code Colorado.
Individuals representing a tech company, startup, STEM education program or Colorado innovation are invited to join us. The tour attendees are looking forward to an informative tour of the state, which will allow them the opportunity to connect with new and established companies. During listening sessions, the Denver delegation will meet with community and business leaders to understand challenges and opportunities that exist in each region.
Each day, happy hour events are open to any and all members of the tech community. Join us at a nearby event, or grab some coworkers and make it a road trip! Please RSVP if you plan to join us.
Program speakers include Erik Mitisek, CEO, CTA; Anna Ewing, COIN executive director, and COO, Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade; Jonita LeRoy, IT Economic Development, Governor’s Office of Information Technology; and Andrew Cole, program manager, Go Code Colorado at Colorado Secretary of State’s Office.
The tour is supported by sponsors including Centurylink, Swiftpage, ViaWest, GTRI, NetApp, 23rd Studios and YellowDog Printing and Graphics.
