CEO, Colorado Technology Association
“We’ve really accelerated the growth of the organization,” says Mitisek, who joined CTA in 2013. “We’ve also had an incredible trajectory of jobs created, partnering with the Governor’s office and economic development commissions.”
The membership directory now lists more than 600 companies and the board represents companies that employ 75,000 people – or half of the IT work force in Colorado.
In 2015, CTA helped launch the Commons on Champa in a city-owned building in Denver’s Theatre District. “It’s truly a first-of-its-kind resource center for entrepreneurs,” says Mitisek, noting that the facility hosted 90 events in its first 120 days. “I think it’s proven it was in great demand.”
