Colorado Venture Ecosystem Review
Venture Capital Trends, Economic Recovery, and what it Means for Colorado Startups
We recently partnered with PitchBook to publish this report, “Colorado Venture Ecosystem Review” that covers key trends that shaped Colorado’s venture ecosystem, highlights investment trends across investor location, and takes a closer look at exits, fundraising and more.
We know Colorado’s economic performance stood out over the past decade as few states between the coats performed well – and a key driver of this performance was growth in early-stage companies. However, we also know that other areas need improvement – such as more local capital needing to be focused on Colorado startups. Innosphere Ventures’ contribution to economic recovery will be to expand our commercialization program and improve access to capital through the formation of a second seed-stage venture fund for science and technology companies.

Innosphere’s program focuses on ensuring companies are investor-ready, and connects founders with talent, partners and all the resources to scale.
