Polis Administration Announces Grants to Create Colorado Technology Hubs

Governor Polis and the Business Funding & Incentives Division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) announced the Colorado Technology Hub Development Grant awards. Three recipients across the state will receive funding to advance Colorado's leadership in key technology areas, grow regional economies and create new job opportunities for Coloradans.


Based in the Denver Metro area, the Colorado CleanRange Coalition (CCC) seeks to support Colorado's leading role in the adoption of clean energy technologies. The CCC will develop the CleanRange Connect platform, which will include a statewide asset database and support regular coalition convenings; launch a Virtual CleanRange Accelerator and Testbed Network to foster innovation of new technologies; and implement a workforce development initiative to identify key skill gaps and provide targeted training for Colorado's workforce.


"The Colorado TechHub grant is transformative in accelerating Colorado's cleantech ecosystem. Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) and CCC will catalyze job creation, support entrepreneurs to commercialization and help build our skilled workforce. Leveraging our partnership and OEDIT's support, we are committed to ensuring the benefits are widely shared across the state and we expect significant impact in new capital investment, new jobs and new technologies," Laura Hickernell, Executive Director of Colorado Cleantech Industry Association (CCIA).
