Press Release- Velocity Global Named a 2017 Colorado Companies to Watch Winner

DENVER, CO (June 27, 2017) – Velocity Global, a Global Employer of Record headquartered in Denver, Colorado, announced today that it has been named a Colorado Company to Watch, acknowledging the drive, excellence, and influence of Velocity Global as a growing company in the state. Colorado Companies to Watch honors second-stage companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities, and create new industries throughout Colorado.

“Velocity Global is thrilled to win the coveted Colorado Companies to Watch award,” says Velocity Global CEO, Ben Wright. “This program includes some of the most well-known and prestigious private companies in Colorado. To be listed amongst their ranks is an honor indeed.  Our incredible team is very deserving of this accolade, and all credit to them.”

“Colorado Companies to Watch is a unique nationally heralded awards program that recognizes second stage Companies in Colorado which are past startup, 6-99 employees and facing issues of growth, not survival,” says Rick Ninneman, Colorado Companies to Watch Board Chairman. “Velocity Global is the exact type of company that the program should honor. They are rapidly hiring, expanding into new markets, and helping to drive the economic fire of the State of Colorado! It gave me great pleasure to hand CEO Ben Wright the award last Friday in front of 800 attendees, including the other 49 deserving winners. I find it interesting, that last year they were too small and next year, they will probably be too large to qualify. Well done Velocity Global!”

Colorado Companies to Watch works to recognize the driving economic forces in the state by focusing not merely on growth, but on the true impact and influence of an organization. By focusing on second-stage companies across the state, the program offers distinct insight into the state’s economic landscape and recognizes organizations often overlooked for the critical impact they have.
