Colorado Impact Fund brings its message – and maybe money – to Colorado Springs
(June 11, 2015)
After making two investments in the Denver area this year, the Colorado Impact Fund is looking to pump some financing into post-startup companies in southern Colorado and the rest of the state.
The Denver-based venture capital fund was created last year with $62.9 million in investments from business executives, wealthy families, foundations and corporations at the urging of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper as a way to boost entrepreneurial activity in the state and fuel economic growth.
The fund, managed at no cost by the Denver office of Vestar Capital Partners Inc., is designed to combine capital from local investors and input from local advisers to help companies stay and grow in the state.
