Colorado Tech Weekly #296: Webroot Gets Acquired and Colorado Tech Continues to Grow

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’ve been doing this series for almost 5 years and in that time the already thriving Colorado tech community has continued unprecedented growth. When I started at Infinicept, we had 5 employees and when we went out for a company lunch on Friday we went with 23 people!

It would be really easy for me to take our growth for granted but it is important that we not only stay humble about our growth but also that we do so responsibly and with kindness.

Only 4 more Colorado Tech Weekly posts will be on ScottPantall.com. Starting on March 11 (if I’ve done my math correctly) you’ll be able to find them on the new and improved ColoradoTechWeekly.com.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #204: Some Things Are Bigger Than Tech

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!

I spent this weekend with my wife in Steamboat Springs celebrating our 8th anniversary. It was great to get out of the Denver area and spend some time without deadlines or schedules. I think my mind is still there.

Regardless of where my mind is, there are still some great news and events this week. Have a great week!
