West Slope companies compete in Tech Madness Bracket

Two West Slope companies were selected to participate in what’s billed as a Tech Madness Bracket pitting 16 Colorado startups.

ProStar Geocorp in Grand Junction and Proximity Space based in Montrose both prevailed in their first-round matchups in the competition organized by Coloradoinno, an organization promoting innovation in the state. The public participates by voting for the companies in which they’d most likely invest. The companies with the most votes advance to the next round.

Mara Hardy, business development manager with the Grand Junction Economic Partnership, said ProStar Geocorp and Proximity Space constitute good choices for the inaugural Tech Madness Bracket. “They are exemplary of the caliber tech innovators we have in Grand Junction, and we are thrilled that they are putting a statewide spotlight on our valley.”

ProStar combines cloud and mobile technologies with patented processes to create geospatial intelligence software that helps companies and government agencies manage underground infrastructure. Proximity Space offers software and hardware to manage coworking spaces.
