KUSA - Corey Rose sat down with Scott Yates for a look at three companies for the Tech Tuesday spotlight.
They looked at companies in three categories, Crushing It, Colorado's Own, and Early But Interesting.
"Colorado's Own" this week is Three Cents. Ever have a hard time deciding with friends where you want to go for dinner, or what movie to see? Well, now there's an app for that! This app for iPhones makes it easy and quick to have people vote on some options and come to a quick consensus. This is a product of an app development shop in the trendy LoHi that had built lots of great apps for others, and decided to build one of their own. They are starting to get some great traction, having recently been used for poll by a big UK pop star who may not have even known she was using a tool built right here in Colorado.
(Colorado, by the way, has a nice set of companies doing well in the survey space, including the leader, Survey Gizmo.)
"Early But Interesting" is an earphone maker from Fort Collins, Decibullz. Colorado is well known for being a state with people who exercise a lot, so it makes sense that this invention would come from here. This is an earphone that molds directly to your ear so it won't fall out as you are running, hiking, biking or whatever. The company was recognized for its excellent idea and execution recently by winning a startup competition at CSU.
In our "Crushing It" category is Cloud Elements. This company is not too sexy, but it plays a crucial role for other companies who want to use cloud services like Google Drive and SendGrid from around the web and have them all work together for their company. While not sexy, the company has had great success in making sales to real customers. Recently the company decided to take some outside investment to help them grow faster, which means that they have lots of job openings.
