Snapshot: Aventura improves the workflow of doctors and nurses by giving them information they need, when and where they need it. Its context- and location-aware computing intelligence coordinates technologies already in place, making them responsive to the user. Revenues increased 178 percent in 2011 and are projected to increase 20 percent this year.

Leadership: Howard Diamond became CEO in 2010. The Denver company was founded in 2008.

Work force: The company employs 33 full-time workers and expects to increase to 56 this year.

Pivotal moment: In 2010, the company switched from a hardware to a software model and changed much of its management to support the new business model. It tripled the customer base in about nine months.

Technological edge: With 21 patents pending, Aventura solves an age-old problem: access to the right medical information at the point at which it makes the biggest impact – when treating a patient.

Company culture: Aventura has purposefully built a team environment with employees motivated by collaboration rather than individual contributions. Executive team members volunteer with TechStars and the Innovative Pavilion to mentor companies and individuals.
