The January TalentFOUND series with the Colorado Workforce Development Council will highlight job creators in Colorado. Stephanie Veck, Director of the Colorado Workforce Development Council talks with Erin Beckstein of Colorado Companies to Watch about the economic impact and call for nominations. Then Wendy Brors, Assistant Director of the CWDC Industry Partnerships joins us to discuss local and statewide partnerships.
Colorado Companies to Watch is a program honoring 50 second-stage companies headquartered in the state of Colorado each year. These companies demonstrate high performance in the marketplace or exhibit innovative products or processes. The companies selected each year make an astounding impact on Colorado’s economy by collectively providing thousands of jobs and contributing millions of dollars in revenue. In short, they tell a compelling story about the state’s diverse economic landscape.
The 2016 class of Colorado Companies to Watch winners have created 3257 jobs! The show will also highlight the creation of a network of industry intermediaries throughout Colorado in a variety of industries. This network of statewide industry associations and regional sector partnerships are supporting businesses in a variety of industries and helping build a demand driven talent pipeline.
