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!

Colorado Tech Weekly #266: Leadership Matters and Fintech Grows in Denver

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!

The 2 subjects of this week’s headline directly affect me on a daily basis. As an employee of a startup with less than 10 people, our company is not only affected by the decisions made by our leadership but also the moods and attitudes that are shown by our founders, our managers and each of us. Leadership is not dependent on job title in a small organization, however the people with the big job titles have the most direct affect on the mood and culture of an organization. I’m excited to see what’s in store for OpenWorldLearning and Colorado Technology Association after their leadership changes.

My startup is also involved in fintech and seeing The Funding Circle opening an office here and seeing OnDeck grow their presence here makes me excited about the industry I get to work in.

I hope there’s something to get you excited this week! Have a great week!
