The technology sector now makes up more than 11 percent of Colorado's. To support further growth, the Colorado Technology Association
will host the Colorado Tech Summit
on Oct. 19 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center.
Gov. John Hickenlooper will open one of the sessions discussing cybersecurity and Colorado's role in the industry. Earlier this year, he announced the opening of a National Cybersecurity Intelligence Center in Colorado Springs, and the University of Denver launched a new, one-year cybersecurity masters program
to help prepare tomorrow's workers for a career in the field.
The event's keynote will be delivered by Dave Anderson of CH2M
on virtual and augmented reality, and Eric Marcoullier of Cloudspace
and Page Tucker of ProStar Geocorp
will show how their companies are using virtual reality in different fields.
The event will also feature breakout sessions on transforming businesses through the Internet of Things and innovation. It also will showcase how tech is being implemented throughout the state in its "Tech Tour on Stage" event.
