What Colorado TechCast
Is All About

Hi, I am Trapper Little

-- tech-obsessed host of the Colorado TechCast.

I’ve spent 15+ years in the Tech Industry, and along the way I’ve met some fascinating people with even more fascinating stories.  Tech has the ability to create ideas and businesses out of thin air (actually digital air). It’s almost magic.

When you think of tech and creativity and startups, I bet you don’t naturally think of Colorado, do you?  You think of the Silicon Valley, Seattle, or maybe Austin, but not Colorado.

It’s my mission to change your mind, and introduce you to amazing people and companies that can change your own entrepreneurial journey.

It’s the story and people behind These numbers that I get to share...

  • In 2010, Boulder had 6x more tech startups than the rest of the country, and 2x as many as Silicon Valley (there’s only 120,000 people in Boulder).
  • In the first quarter of 2016, 600 new high-technology companies were formed.
  • Forbes named Colorado the best place in the US to do business.
  • US Chamber of Commerce reports Colorado as the 2nd best state for entrepreneurship and innovation.
  • In 2016, 120+ Colorado tech companies raised over $780 million in funding.
  • Denver has 713 tech startups, making up 8.2% of city businesses.
  • Colorado’s startup growth is at a rate of 74.1% as of 2017. (Kauffman Index)

Here’s a sample of what you’ll learn:

  • Why a former Middle School teacher started a non-profit school to train new developers.
  • Chevron Circle Right
    How the blockchain is going to transform business, culture, government, art, and personal relationships (and it doesn’t have anything to do with Bitcoin).
  • How a college student used tech to lower barriers for charitable giving.
  • Chevron Circle Right

    What it takes to build a growing entrepreneurial community even in a small town.

  • Chevron Circle Right

    How to master networking when you are an introvert.

  • Chevron Circle Right
    Understanding design as an essential element to a successful business.
  • Chevron Circle Right
    The secret location where travel is being transformed by technology (hint: it’s in the Rockies).

Plus you will be part of a growing online and offline community (yes, you can be a virtual Coloradan too).
