Colorado Tech Weekly #337: Growing is Not Always Easy
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
In the past 337 weeks of doing this series I’ve started to take growth in the Colorado tech community for granted. I’ve also tended to consider that growth as always good and relatively easy.
Growing the right way is not easy. This week, Four Winds Interactive and HomeAdvisor are laying off people to better grow their companies which sounds completely backwards! Also this week, Gusto checks in on their diversity goals because exclusive growth is not nearly as good as inclusive growth.
Have a great week!
