Colorado Tech Weekly #109: From the Front Range to the Western Slope
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
I know that most of the biggest and loudest tech companies are in front range cities like Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs but I pride myself on truly making this newsletter about tech companies throughout the state. That’s why this week I’m excited about the Xconomy article about the Telluride Venture Accelerator‘s newest class of tech startups and to be able to promote CTA’s Tech Tour that starts a week from today. I would be all for driving around the state, visiting tech companies. I’m jealous.
