Thank you for attending the 12th edition of C-Level @ A Mile High! Stay tuned for our 2019 date.


C-Level @ A Mile High is the Colorado Technology Association’s largest fundraiser, packed with a C-level celeb auction, silent auction and the debut of the Tech Exchange to help carry out its mission of fueling Colorado’s economy through technology. It’s the perfect opportunity to build relationships with peers, win business and be introduced to tech companies and influential IT leaders in a setting unlike any other within Colorado. Check out photos from the event here!

The 12th edition of C-Level will have a brand-new way to connect

We’re gearing up for an incredible night of fundraising and relationship building with our 1,000+ closest friends in the community at C-Level @ A Mile High 2018. It’s bound to be the best yet as we debut an exciting new format – in addition to the classic event – that you’ll hear much more about soon.

C-Level’s growth each year is a testament to Colorado tech’s strong community and we continue to be inspired by everything you’re working on and building toward. It’s one night each year where business gets done and funds raised go directly back into the tech community as our largest fundraiser. We can’t wait to see you in March!
