Most people know Colorado’s tech entrepreneurs and venture capitalists work as hard as those on the coasts in spite of the pernicious rumor that Coloradans are all just playing in the hills.
While Colorado’s tech community knows the hard-working truth, there remains a false perception. Colorado wants to show off its assets to attract more investments in great companies that will grow and thrive here.
Leading by example is Rally Software, a Boulder-based company that helps large enterprises “perfect the art of agile development.” Rally, which was founded in the early 2000s, has recently made headlines for its $84 million IPO and a $70 million follow-on offering.
Rally’s success could help advocates for Colorado’s startup community build a case that Colorado’s time has come.
