Colorado Tech Weekly #267: Big Names, Small Names and New Names

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!

One of my favorite things about doing this blog is putting the news about the big name companies next to the lesser known companies because big tech news is big tech news regardless of the size of the company.  I am also constantly surprised to find Colorado tech companies that I don’t know about. It really amazes me to think about how big our tech community really is.

Have a great week!

Hey! There’s tech in my startups!

I’ve come to the conclusion there is no way to pay attention to Colorado tech news without diving in deep to the Colorado startup news. They’re completely intertwined. Last week was Denver Startup Week, this coming weekend is Western Colorado Startup Weekend and the amount of technology-centric businesses involved with these events is amazing. They are great ways to find out what is going on in the Colorado tech community.
