We drive economic development.
Colorado’s tech community has grown because collaboration is part of its DNA. CTA convenes the leaders, organizations and companies to accelerate that collaboration across the state. We are here to help direct you to the resources, tools and opportunities that will help you succeed as we advance Colorado’s tech ecosystem to grow the entire state’s economy.
Access to Capital Programs
The Advanced Industries (AI) Accelerator Programs promote growth and sustainability in Colorado’s seven advanced industries by helping drive innovation, accelerate commercialization, encourage public-private partnerships, increase access to early stage capital and create a strong ecosystem that increases the state’s global competitiveness. CTA leads the Review Sub-Committee in partnership with the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade for the Advanced Industry Grant Program.
Colorado Tech Tour
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. The Colorado Tech Tour builds those bridges through dialogue, demonstration and storytelling. Colorado Technology Association is committed to advocating for and showcasing the amazing work happening in every corner of the state, and the Tour is its vehicle.
Economic Gardening Trips
CTA partners with the Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the Office of Information Technology and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation on a variety of economic development programs including visiting other states, hosting visitors, a CEO-to-CEO support network, and more.
Colorado Cyber is designed to promote a vibrant, interconnected ecosystem of Colorado-based organizations and executives who are passionate about cybersecurity, and to elevate Colorado’s reputation as a center of cybersecurity innovation.
Entrepreneurship & Innovation
The Commons on Champa was founded by CTA, the Downtown Denver Partnership and the City of Denver to support startups across all industries and to expand access to entrepreneurship, ensuring Denver remains one of the best cities in the country to start and grow a business.
