History is repeating itself today, but I guess that's how traditions are created. ReadyTalk customer and local tech company, TrackVia, today announced the passing of Denver’s downtown tech torch—or in this case, a ski-lift chair—to LoHi Labs, another burgeoning tech company.
The tradition started last year when ReadyTalk moved to larger offices and needed to part with the ski lift chair that had been a fixture of our lobby. Rather than retire the chair – which had grown to symbolize ReadyTalks award-winning company culture – we decided to present it to TrackVia, who makes online software that helps business people track and manage their work. The latest recipient of the ski chair, LoHi Labs is a mobile and web application development company focused on building high end technology for iOS (iPhone/iPad) and the Web.
Building a strong, collaborative and most importantly fun tech start-up community is what Colorado is all about. For ReadyTalk, the chairlift represents what Colorado is known for: its active, outdoor culture and for having the fittest people in the nation, but we also want to be known as the innovative technology capital as represented by the employees at ReadYTalk, TrackVia and LoHi. The three companies have been strong supporters of the Denver tech community since their respective starts. From participating in Denver Startup Week and community technology meet-ups, to engaging with other tech communities in the area, the three companies have played an instrumental role in driving growth of Denver’s startup ecosystem, namely the tech sector.
Who should get the chair lift next?
