The Colorado Innovation Network
(COIN) is announcing a new focus and direction to place Colorado at the forefront of the civic disruption conversation. The organization will concentrate on public sector innovation.
COIN is a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade
with the mission of advancing connections in the global innovation ecosystem to place Colorado as a leader in innovation. As such, it is pivoting toward more public sector innovation and will officially launch the new focus in early November.
The public-private partnership has a physical and virtual global network of more than 2,000 people that support the state's innovation ecosystem, its growing companies, and are helping to create jobs in the state.
The new focus will be announced at the Reverb Conference
, hosted by COIN and Sound Ventures
on Nov. 3. At the conference, COIN and partners also will announce the 2nd Imagine Colorado Innovation Challenge. The conference is aimed at matching public sector changemakers with entrepreneurs and innovators who are developing technologies ideal for the government.
The organization also is committed to expanding its actions with a new digital platform. COIN is expanding its reach through blogs, podcasts and video.
