Darwin Biosciences was recognized with the Colorado Companies to Watch (CCTW) award June 17 alongside 49 prominent local businesses. The CU startup was recognized for their work towards less invasive tests with simple, user-generated results to empower people with direct knowledge of their health.
The CCTW Award honors 50 of Colorado’s most innovative, successful second-stage entrepreneurs who are actively growing their businesses and expanding their network. Because of their contribution, they are helping to expand the economy, bring in new wealth through investment, generate new job opportunities, create innovative products and services, and participate in philanthropic efforts.
While each business is unique, small local businesses have one thing in common; they are vital to our community. In addition to creating jobs, they contribute to the quality of life and availability of amenities that make the community a more desirable place to live and work. Many of these second-stage companies can help generate up to 50% of all innovation within our economy and are now playing an essential role as the state recovers from the COVID-19 economic downturn.
