The Annual Ascent Awards celebrate Colorado entrepreneurial technology companies, recognizing excellence in a variety of categories. The event is presented by CTP and TiE® Rockies and the Innovation Pavilion where the event is held. CTP holds two other keynote events each year, The Future of Technology (FOT), and the Technology Executive of the Year.
“Larry and Pat are ever-present and constant supporters of Colorado tech companies,” says Debora Langer, CTP president. “The board wanted a way to express how much Larry and Pat have meant to us over the past 15 years—and the Tech Icon Award was born in an immediate and unanimous decision. We are thrilled to be making the inaugural award to Larry and Pat, who are Colorado’s true tech icons. We invite everyone who knows Larry and Pat to join us in celebrating them on November 7th.” Visit http://comtechpros.org/?
