A key factor of our burgeoning ecosystem is a balance between large and small tech companies contributing to the local talent and expertise pool. 60 of the largest tech companies in Silicon Valley have a presence and/or are hiring in Colorado – which definitely helps to contribute to our growing talent pool.
