Colorado Tech Weekly #319: Tendril and Simple Energy Merge, a Great Big Boulder Tech Meetup, and Colorado Continues to Attract Good Tech Companies

Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

I tag each Colorado Tech Weekly post with the companies that are mentioned so with the news of Simple Energy and Tendril merging I thought I’d look to see the first times they were mentioned in Colorado Tech Weekly.

The first mention of Simple Energy was in Colorado Tech Weekly #34 in February 2014. At that time QuickLeft was still an independent company and the first Go Code Colorado was just announced.

The first mention of Tendril was in Colorado Tech Weekly #87 in February of 2015. At that time Mergelane’s first class was just announced and BuiltinColorado had listed 50 people (including me, surprisingly) in tech that you should follow and it still holds up!

Have a great week!
