The Denver-based Colorado Technology Association has 10,000 members. TechStars graduates are relocating to Denver. And last year, the first Denver Startup Week featured a week of events showcasing Denver's entrepreneur community in tech, design, business, and sustainability. That all said, signs are showing that Denver is starting to attract tech business leaders and entrepreneurs.
And why not? Colorado is the nation's third most economically competitive state, according to the Beacon Hill Institute. Moreover, Denver was ranked fifth in Forbes’ 2012 “Best Places for Business and Careers.”
Galvanize, which opened its first space in Denver in October, is ahead of this movement. An ecosystem for entrepreneurship through venture capital, community and curriculum, Galvanize recently selected Comcast Business Class Ethernet to provide bandwidth connectivity to its entrepreneur and start-up company members. We’re talking miles of serious fiber. The space is also home to some of Denver’s hottest digital startups (think: Forkly, Keen.io and Dabble) by creating a perfect environment for those who are just beginning their entrepreneurial growth.
