DENVER – Gov. John Hickenlooper has proclaimed the week of Aug. 1-5 as Tech Week in Colorado to highlight the entrepreneurs and companies that are helping transform the state into a major tech hub.
Tech and “tech-enabled” businesses around the state are being encouraged to host events during the week – ranging from happy hours to demonstrations to pitch contests to tours.
Those events can be submitted for promotion through www.coloradotechweek.org. Businesses can also submit stories on the site of how Colorado has helped grow their companies.
In addition, the Colorado Technology Association will host its second annual Colorado Tech Tour, stopping in five regions over five days for events and stops at local businesses.
“We know technology underpins much of Colorado’s economic progress today, and will increasingly do so in the future,” Hickenlooper said in a news release. “Tech week is a catalyst for showcasing the real impact of technology in our lives, and in helping make Colorado one of the nation’s premier technology-inspired hubs.”
