“Being recognized as a ‘Colorado Company to Watch' is an achievement that Big Agnes is very proud of,” says Big Agnes co-founder, Bill Gamber. “With the diverse nature of the Colorado economy, the visibility and exposure that this award provides will be invaluable to us. It is very special to be in the presence of so many dynamic entrepreneurs and small business', all doing our part to develop valuable products, create jobs, enriching our communities and fueling the Colorado economy.”
