History - Technology Startup Board
History - Why Are We Doing This?
"Colorado Springs may as well be Kansas, nothing ever happens there."
      -- Quote from a Boulder high-technology individual

Colorado Springs is a great place to live and work. There are many incredibly talented / successful individuals and high-technology businesses here in our community. Unfortunately, the perception outside our community is that not much is happening in Colorado Springs. In short, Colorado Springs gets no respect when it comes to high-technology startups. We believe that there are two fundamental issues that need to be addressed:

  • Need To Increase Awareness (what's really going on here?)
  • Need To Strengthen The Community (let's get everyone together)
The Technology Startup Board was started as a grass roots effort to address these issues. Our fundamental approach is to create a solid foundation that the high- technology community can build on. We don't expect to be "the" answer to all of these issues. But we do want to make a difference (for the better).

Awareness - We are attempting to address this issue by compiling the most complete listing of high-technology businesses and individuals in the Colorado Springs area. We are also building a list of venture capital firms, related partner companies, and entrepreneurial resources available to the high-technology community in Colorado Springs.
Community - Once we raise awareness, we can then start to raise the level of community spirit. Our goal is for everyone in the high-technology community to know (hopefully firsthand) everyone else in the high-technology community.

The TSBoard was founded in 2002 and is based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
