DENVER — Nineteen second-stage companies from the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado are among 78 finalists for the 2016 Companies to Watch list.
Fifty winners will be announced at the 8th Annual Gala Awards Dinner on Friday, June 17, at the Hyatt Regency Denver.
Of the 19 companies in the region, 13 are based in Boulder.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges based on their performance in the marketplace, innovative products, unique processes and philanthropic actions.
Colorado Companies to Watch is presented by CapitalValue Advisors. It was launched in 2009 by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade in conjunction with the Edward Lowe Foundation, and has honored 350 companies to date..
“The 2016 Colorado Companies to Watch Finalists represent the state’s most innovative and impactful businesses,” said Sean Nohavec, CCTW’s chairman and senior vice president of UMB Bank, the event’s platinum sponsor.
“We are proud to recognize the contributions of second-stage companies in Colorado, which often work behind the scenes creating the bulk of economic growth in our state,” he added.
Second-stage companies are those that have moved past the startup stage and into a period of growth.
The finalists were selected from more than 1,000 nominations.
