Behind the Logo  

DigitalGlobe is based in Longmont and Boulder and is the leading global provider of high-resolution earth imagery and geospatial solutions serving the U.S. Government, friendly foreign governments and industry. Their corporate purpose, “Seeing a Better World," is a driving force for their 1200 team members. The company is aligned behind the principle that by giving customers the power to see the Earth clearly and in new ways, they enable them to make the world a better place.

DigitalGlobe satellites orbit the Earth 75 times per day and can see something the size of home plate on a baseball field while traveling 17,000 mph. They operate in service to our community, our nation and the world. Their customers rely on a constellation of five high-resolution satellites to map and monitor areas of interest in support of intelligence analysts, military personnel, first responders and relief workers or map makers like Google. Recent efforts include the search for Malaysian Air 370, monitoring Russian troop build-up on the Ukrainian border, providing before and after images of the mudslide in Colorado, monitoring the movement of refugee populations in Syria, or exposing the atrocities of extremists groups like Boko Haram. Learn more

Recognition matters. Submit your nominations TODAY!

It is our favorite time of year – the time of year we start the process to recognize the best of technology in Colorado. Each year we get great nominations for our APEX Awards, and are always in search of the best ideas, leaders, projects and inspiring stories to lift the Colorado technology community to the next level.
But, nominations take time. Effort. And can be burdensome to get submitted. We get it. You are busy. And with the best of intentions, sometimes our best nominees never make it into the process. Well this year – we want to change that. We want to help the Colorado technology accelerate and thought it would be great to share why this is so important.
