The last few weeks at the firehouse have been kind of nuts, but in a good way!
CWCC Small Company of the Year
On September 25th, we were honored and humbled to have received the Colorado Women’s Chamber Small Company of the Year Award for 2014. The award “recognizes a company that creates a workplace culture that supports the highest levels of personal and professional accomplishment for their employees who are women.”
As a company with 75% female partners, and an organization that strives to encourage and support women in tech, we hope to encourage businesses throughout Colorado to respect and promote diversity in their workforce.
Of course we asked Tynan, our lone male partner, to accept the honor because, as CEO, he’s been leading our vision for an equitable tech workplace for the last 11 years. He immediately endeared himself to the audience, and gave some heartfelt words about the challenges of women in tech to the assembled lunch crowd.
And shout out to our partner, Jamie, who was nominated for this year’s Young Professional of the Year for her work with Anneal!
A Second Office at INDUSTRY
As we continue growing the Commerce Kitchen business in the digital health industry, we’ve found that the networking at INDUSTRY‘s coworking space has been invaluable for connecting with our clients, and movers and shakers in the healthcare scene.
We’re excited to announce that we’re opening a second, satellite office this month. Don’t worry — the firehouse isn’t going anywhere! Most of our team will office at 600 South Broadway, but several of our CK superheroes will be regularly rotating through and working from our new office at 3001 Brighton Boulevard, just a few doors down from our partners at Anneal!
If you are in the River North area, come stop by and check out Tynan’s Tavern — a wine tasting conference room, complete with wine barrel furniture and a fully stocked bar. Meetings will never be the same.
You may have heard rumblings about some other big office news at CK. Shssh, we can’t say anything yet, but stay tuned for an official announcement in the coming weeks.
