C-Level @ A Mile High is the Colorado Technology Association’s largest fundraiser, packed with a C-level celeb auction, silent auction and live auction 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.

The 11th Edition of C-Level @ A Mile High was Another Huge Success

We had an incredible time once again connecting for a big night of fundraising and relationship building with our 1,000+ closest friends in the community  at C-Level @ A Mile High 2017.

Thanks to everyone who came out to engage with the record 68 celebrities, whose combined IT project spend was more than $2.5 billion. It’s a testament to the growth Colorado tech is experiencing and we continue to be inspired by everything you’re working on and building toward. Also, congrats to Catholic Health Initiatives executives Ginna Raahauge and Denis Zerr for this year’s highest bid!
C-Level @ A Mile High marks the beginning of a big year, so in conjunction with the main event we introduced two new programs – Colorado Tech Nucleus and our partnership with Colorado startup SelectHub – that will build on the momentum of C-Level.

We appreciate everyone who made this possible either through bids, volunteer time, taking time as a celebrity, sponsoring the event and so much more. Thank you!
