C Level Secondary

 


Where strong relationships begin and tech business gets done

C-Level @ A Mile High is where Colorado tech companies can go beyond networking, do business and build lasting relationships. In 2020, we brought our attendees the world-class C-Level experience from the comfort of their own homes and we did it again in 2021!

At the event, we gather 50+ top tech executives and give them the title of “Celebrity”.  As our C-Level Celebrities, these executives attend the event to connect with our attendees. Celebrities share information on upcoming IT projects and put together auction experience packages – such as a hike, sporting event or cooking class – that our attendees bid on throughout the evening in an effort to win the chance to spend even more time with the Celebrity following the event.

As our largest fundraiser of the year, C-Level @ A Mile High has always been an opportunity for Colorado’s tech community to come together to support Colorado Technology Association and the Colorado tech community.
