Colorado Tech Weekly #121: Hey! You put Startups in my Tech!
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Hey! There’s tech in my startups!
I’ve come to the conclusion there is no way to pay attention to Colorado tech news without diving in deep to the Colorado startup news. They’re completely intertwined. Last week was Denver Startup Week, this coming weekend is Western Colorado Startup Weekend and the amount of technology-centric businesses involved with these events is amazing. They are great ways to find out what is going on in the Colorado tech community.
