What we’re about
OUR STORY: This group started as a conversation in a Denver coffee shop between two CTA event volunteers. We discovered there was no forum for tech sales professionals to boost each others careers. Six years and 1300 plus members later, obviously we are resonating with the Colorado business community.
COVID-19 Notice. The health and safety of our members is of the utmost importance. During these exceptional times, we're paying close attention to CDC guidance on in-person events, especially with new, emerging variants. We will continue to adapt & make changes, as needed, to event logistics to keep our members safe. While we are not checking vaccination cards, please be vaccinated to attend our in-person events.
SCHEDULING NOTE: There will be no event in December, since we have so many holiday parties to go to, anyway. Our January event has been scheduled for the 10th, barring any drastic changes in Covid variant public health guidance.
MISSION: Since 2015, we have been elevating tech sales professionals in Colorado to advance their careers, have them get strategic with their customers to focus on the business outcomes and financial goals of our customers.
We are a dynamic, ambitious group of Colorado Technology Sales Professionals all about professional development and thought leadership. We meet to discuss our careers, projects, sales skills and day-to-day sales efforts. We are fostering a community of technology sales professionals who complement each other and can help enable each other, rather than compete with each other.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer, sponsor, or be featured as a speaker at a future event.

- Katrina Padron presents: What works now in 2024Venture X Denver, Denver, CO
When it comes to bringing in leads, I know you want to be consistent and effective. You want to confidently go to board and leadership meetings with a pipeline full of qualified leads.
In order to do that though, you need to know exactly how to find your ideal customer and how to add scale to that process. The problem is you don’t know what is most effective in the digital space and that makes you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and ill-equipped. I understand how overwhelming and intimidating lead gen can be, which is why I’m proud to say I’ve helped over 100 B2B brands close hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales for their organization.
