Colorado Tech Weekly #302: Non-Tech Execs Are Important Too
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
As a tech blog, I like to focus on… well.. tech obviously but as I look through the headlines this week and last week and consider my own experience in a small startup I notice how much non-tech executives play a big role in the Colorado tech community. People who fill leadership roles in a company affect the entire company, not just their departments. Tech does not exist in a vacuum!
Have a great week!
