Journey to The Top
Meet the leaders and companies elevating CO tech to new heights
This year’s APEX Awards will be a week-long digital celebration of the leaders and companies elevating Colorado tech to new heights and will conclude with a live virtual event on February 4th.
Each day of the week, we’ll announce different award finalists and winners across our digital platforms and social media channels and share their stories of courage, passion and tenacity.
The celebration will culminate on Thursday, February 4th, with our annual APEX Awards event. The virtual event will feature a dynamic program with abundant networking opportunities and live award announcements.
Since 2001, CTA has hosted this prestigious event to bring together the community and celebrate the exceptional people, companies and accomplishments of the year. In the tradition of years past, we’ll be recognizing award winners who are leading the way for Colorado tech. Winners are selected by a panel of community judges.
