Colorado Technology Foundation

Colorado’s tech industry is rapidly evolving. As we recruit and grow companies and continue to add jobs, how can we deliver the talent needed to fill these tech jobs?

Since 1994, the Colorado Technology Association has supported education and workforce initiatives, and 2014 marked the launch of our 501(c)(3) Foundation, bringing this support full circle.

Colorado Technology Foundation attracts, retains and grows top technology talent to elevate Colorado’s technology talent pipeline and grow Colorado’s economy.

Support our tech talent-focused programs and initiatives by getting involved and/or donating.
