How Boulder Grew Into a Hub for Start-Ups - Colorado Technology Association
BY SARAH MAX
After selling his Boston start-up in 1995, Brad Feld, then 29, moved to Colorado with his wife, Amy.
He didn’t have big career plans, other than to invest his own money in promising businesses, and figured Boulder, a college town 30 miles north of Denver, would be a convenient spot for crisscrossing the country. It was not a bad place to live either.
Within a couple of years, Mr. Feld had put down deep roots in his adopted community. Even as he was investing around the country, he increasingly found opportunities close to home. Although the foundation for Boulder’s entrepreneurial success had been laid decades before his arrival, Mr. Feld got to see those efforts bear fruit.
