High-tech efforts worth attention

ProStar Geocorp has been a frequent subject of stories in the Business Times this year, but for good reason.

The Grand Junction company was among the first to participate in the Rural Jump-Start Program while nearly simultaneously securing a $250,000 grant from the Advanced Industries Accelerator Program. ProStar also made news for working with Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headsets in displaying in three dimensions the geospatial information with which the company works. In this issue, ProStar executive Page Tucker grabs headlines for winning the Colorado Technology Association Apex Award for entrepreneur excellence.

What’s made ProStar especially newsworthy is not only the accomplishments of the company, but also efforts by Tucker to promote the technology sector locally. Tucker wants to turn the Grand Valley into a tech hub.

Congratulations are in order for ProStar and Tucker for the success the company and entrepreneur have achieved so far. Here’s hoping Tucker is equally successful in realizing his high hopes for high tech.
