Boa® Technology Inc., makers of the award-winning, patented Boa® Lacing System, has been recognized by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade as a 2009 Colorado Company to Watch award winner. Boa Technology will be accepting this honor at the CCTW ball on June 25, 2009, at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
“First of all, this is a great award for the state of Colorado to support,” says Gary Hammerslag, Founder and CEO of Boa Technology. “At Boa we believe that continual innovation and attention to great design will lead to steady growth, especially during tough economic times like these.”
In its first year, the Colorado Companies To Watch award attracted over 250 submissions, with 110 companies selected as finalists. Boa Technology, along with forty-nine other winners, was selected to receive the distinction of being named to the inaugural class of Colorado Companies to Watch for 2009.
“The entire Boa Technology team is excited to receive this award,” said Boa Technology President Mark Soderberg. “Innovation is the lifeblood of Boa Technology. After all, we’re working to create a product category that didn’t exist before we sold the first Boa Lacing System in 2001 and now it can be found on over 4.5 million pairs of shoes or boots around the world.”
Companies considered for the Colorado Companies To Watch list must be second-stage companies, defined as having six to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in annual revenue or working capital.
