Colorado Tech Weekly #288: New Offices, Strategic Acquisitions and Growth
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
This week’s headline could be the headline for any Colorado Tech Weekly post, but I couldn’t think of a better summary. New workplaces for Western Union, Localhost Arena and Zayo. Acquisitions involving Sovrn, Swiftpage, Avoka and SendGrid and growth involving Jumpcloud, Liqid and Automox! That’s the real summary of the past week but that would make a really long headline.
The next Colorado Tech Weekly post will be delayed until December 26th because I don’t think anyone will pay much attention on Christmas Eve. Have a great week!
