WHAT IS COLORADO TECH TOUR?
Simply stated: Putting Colorado’s tech stories on the map.
Colorado’s rugged terrain is perhaps its greatest asset. It’s also a natural wall between our diverse communities. Technology helps connect business and industry more than ever before, but there’s no substitute for face-to-face relationships.
Colorado Tech Tour, organized by Colorado Technology Association (CTA), builds those bridges through dialogue and storytelling. CTA is committed to advocating for and showcasing the amazing work happening in every corner of the state, and the Tour is its vehicle.
Working with Region Hosts, CTA and the defined regions will hold open to the public community events and private tours / events to tell the stories of tech across the state and its impact to the region.

HOW CAN SOMEONE GET INVOLVED IN TECH WEEK?
The entire technology and tech-enabled community — startup and enterprise companies, students and educators of tech, geeks, IT professionals and others — is encouraged to host an event or share their story of how Colorado has helped grow their business.
