Colorado Tech Weekly #280: Combine Companies? Move Offices? Still Colorado!

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

Undeniably, the biggest news in Colorado tech last week was the purchase of Denver’s SendGrid by San Fransisco-based Twilio. The immediate reaction is to question the future of SendGrid in Denver and wonder “What does this purchase mean for Colorado?” in very concerned ways.

There’s no reason for concern. When this series started 5 years ago, Rally Software and Quickleft were staples of the Boulder startup community. Now Rally is part of the much bigger CA Technologies and QuickLeft is part of Cognizant and both still have their offices here and I’d bet that those offices are bigger and more stable for their employees. Change is part of growth and growth has been a constant part of our community for the past 5 years. Denver Startup Week was not a smoke-blowing session. Colorado is attracting talent and attention from all over the world.

Enjoy and have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #278: Reflecting on Success and Creating More

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

We are constantly trying to create more success. It’s to the point that many of us measure success just as a measure of change. If you are just as successful today as you were last year, many people don’t see that as successful and that sucks!

We spend so much time trying to be better than we are now, we often forget to celebrate our current successes. Take some time and celebrate the history of yourself, your company and your community and have a great week!
