January Sponsors:
Mode Set (http://www.modeset.co...)
More than just developers, we want to understand your business model, your risks, blockers, opportunities, and market advantages. We’re here to build you a viable, releasable product you can take to customers, investors, and stakeholders. Whether that product is a web application, mobile application or social application, or purely architecture, infrastructure or optimization, we can help. We bring with us extensive knowledge and years of experience working with clients ranging from early-stage startups to large global brands.

Technical Integrity (http://technicalinteg...)
We've created a better way to help employers and highly skilled technologists connect. It involves critical elements that so many people forget: a focus on a two-way cultural matching for both our clients and candidates, as well as engaging with and giving back to the community. This is part of our DNA, and as a result we've changed the way technical placements are done. We are highly selective and only work with the most interesting and well-respected startups and mid-size employers in Boulder, Denver, and around the nation. These are companies who treat their employees with respect, have fun, and understand that valued employees = happy employees . We also take pride in representing only the best Engineers and Executives. We emphasize quality, honesty, and integrity in everything we do. In 2011 we gave back almost $[masked] to charities and non-profits in Boulder and beyond. Over the past few years we've helped our community to bring together like-minded folks at Meetups, Ignite Boulder and BoulderBeta. We are proud to be sponsoring Boulder Denver New Tech Meetup. Drop us a line if we can be of assistance to you, oh, and we love snarky comments- so snark away!
