Colorado Tech Weekly #137: A good week for companies with ‘Z’ in their name
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Zillow is going to grow. Dizzion is expanding. Galvanize gets funding. And Sierra Nevadza will need to hire to fulfill their awesome cool NASA contract. OK, there’s no ‘Z’ in Sierra Nevada but that’s still pretty exciting news for them. It’s great seeing front range companies grow!
I’m going to start figuring out how to turn this weekly post into a podcast and I’m going to start looking for tweets with the hashtag #coloradotech to build my lists. I’m looking forward to interacting with you in new, fun ways!
