Colorado Tech Weekly #136: Leadership Changes and More Dev Schools
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
The main reason I share stories about funding amounts and leadership changes in tech companies is because you can learn a lot by a company by paying attention to their leadership. Company culture starts at the top. The traits of a company’s executives and founders is found throughout their companies. Curious about a company? Look at their leaders.
