Denver & Boulder: no signs of peaking

The tech scene in Denver and Boulder isn’t akin to that of Silicon Valley, and they’re ok with that. The Colorado hotbed for IT professionals is doing its own thing when it comes to startups, and the success is evident. Denver has been ranked the top city for technology professionals out of the emerging tech hubs in the U.S., and in Boulder, even back in 2010, there were six times more tech startups than the U.S. average, and twice as many as Silicon Valley.

More than than just a beautiful place to live (hiking, biking, skiing, anyone?), players like SendGrid, Techstars, and FullContact, prove that the tech scene in Denver and Boulder is well-established and not showing any signs of slowing down.

Startups and technology companies

Innovation in any field, but especially in technology, depends on ideas. Research in the fields of relationship intelligence and network science has shown repeatedly, that the best, most innovative ideas come from outside of a local network as someone is able to make connections between fields and create a new way of tackling a challenge.

Technology companies need to continually invent, and reinvent, in order to keep on the forefront of their fields. As industries shift and change, technology leaders need to be on the forefront of the deals and alliances that are being made.

Each of these criteria favour the technology companies that are ‘most connected’. Those that have invested in building and maintaining the relationships they will need with other innovation leaders and alliance partners will be best positioned to win as the market moves forward.

Which brings us to today’s Most Connected Technology Companies in Denver & Boulder list.

The List

What is Most Connected?

Most Connected is a resource that showcases the most networked companies in a region.

And now, relationship intelligence solutions can identify which companies have the strongest sets of relationships.
