Colorado Tech Weekly #306: We’ve Got That Start-Up Mojo
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
There is a certain blind confidence to tech startups that Colorado has seemed to capture. Whether it is a small tech startup that disrupts, a large company that harnesses the entrepreneurial spirit of their employees or just our culture of continuous growth and support Colorado seems to continuously be on the winning side of innovation and I like that.
Have a great week!
