Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
A net gain in employment in Colorado tech this week. It’s never fun when I have to justify the good news but nevertheless it’s good news. It’s one of the main reasons I do this newsletter. I want to keep track of how tech companies in Colorado are performing. Between the news about the Colorado Springs companies as well as the tech talent pipeline update from CTA, it’s nice to see we’re doing well.
