What We Do

There are many rapid training programs in place, being designed and growing in Colorado.  Efforts are also increasing on finding candidates to enter these programs.  Many employers have initiatives to open up their hiring practices to better incorporate non-traditional hiring.  All of these efforts are working to expand and improve Colorado’s local tech talent pipeline.
