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. And this year, we’re bringing you the world-class C-Level experience from the comfort of your own home!

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. This year we need that sense of community more than ever. As we all work toward this new normal, let’s mark July 30th as a day to come together for Colorado tech.

“The Colorado tech community is very open, collaborative and engaged. What I love about C-Level @ A Mile High are the connections and valuable business relationships that grow out of this event each year. This is an opportunity to gain insight from technology leaders, and at the same time see and explore the vibrant IT landscape we have in Colorado.”

For the event, you’ll join our event landing page to navigate a variety of opportunities to network and engage in our virtual experiences, including:

One-on-One Meetings with Attendees

Leading into the event, you’ll be invited to join our AI-powered networking platform where you can build your profile and connect with other attendees based on mutual interests. The app will provide recommendations for who you should meet, or you can scroll through the list of our attendees to make the connections that are the most meaningful to you. You’ll be provided pre-event access to the app to build out your profile and schedule 15-minute one-on-one meetings for the event to optimize your time.

Celebrity Pitch Rooms

Celebrity Experiences Auction

As in our past events, you’ll have the opportunity to bid on our C-Level Celebrities’ auction experience packages – such as a hike, sporting event or cooking class – to continue your conversations and participate in a unique experience with them following the event. Don’t worry, we’re prioritizing the health and safety of our participants for each experience! The funds raised through this auction support CTA and our technology industry year-round!

Peer-to-Peer Networking Rooms

Pop into one of our peer-to-peer networking rooms to share your expertise and perspective and connect with fellow attendees and technology community members! Each room will be moderated and focused on a topic of interest.

Speed Networking

In addition to scheduling one-on-one meetings, you can sign up for a 30-minute speed networking session where you’ll be paired with six different attendees who share your interests for a 5-minute introduction. If you’d like, you can share contact information and continue the conversation beyond the session. Speed Networking is available to All-Access and Sponsor Ticket holders only.
