"Colorado is holding its own as a relatively new technology center in the U.S., with the showing of 16 companies on the Fast 500 based here, seven of which are repeat winners from last year," said Steve Berthe, Partner of the Denver office of Deloitte & Touche. "Their success is proof that Colorado is nurturing its technology community and that the infrastructure exists to perpetuate their incredibly fast growth."
