DENVER (October 18, 2016) – The City of Denver and the state of Colorado are quickly becoming the small business and start-up capital of the country, now known for its booming tech scene just as much as its beautiful scenery and quality of living. Denver and the State of Colorado have welcomed several tech companies within the past year that have added or created over 5,000 jobs, helping expand the local economy and making it a place of opportunity for new and growing businesses.
Among these companies, Trustpilot, the leading review community for online shoppers, recently chose Denver as the headquarters for their expanding U.S. presence and to drive customer sales in the Western States. Trustpilot evaluated several U.S. cities such as Austin, Seattle, Salt Lake City and San Francisco for its local market expansion, but ultimately selected Denver and Colorado because of its growing technology industry, global reach, its reputation as a hub of innovation, and strong local talent pool.
“We chose to expand our presence in Denver not only because of the beauty of the city, but knowing that we have an automatic pool of innovative companies and executives to collaborate with in our journey,” said Scott Ward, Vice President of Sales at Trustpilot. “We’ve built an incredible network during our short period of time here and look forward to growing both the business and our relationship with the City of Denver.”
“We are so excited that Trustpilot has chosen Colorado for its new U.S. Office. Trustpilot is joining a prestigious list of tech companies that are now calling Colorado home,” said Gov. John Hickenlooper. “The State strives to provide a pro-business and collaborative environment with a robust workforce and global reach so companies and Colorado can experience economic success.”
To celebrate the ongoing success of Trustpilot in the U.S., the Denver office is hosting an open house for Denver businesses on Nov. 3 at the company’s WeWork office in LoHi. The open house will offer the opportunity to connect with likeminded businesses, potential clients and employees. The event will be catered by Sweet Hickory, a Colorado Catering Company and there will be plenty of Colorado craft beer on tap. For more information and to attend the event, RSVP here.
