On Friday, Agloves accepted a Colorado Companies to Watch Award, along with 49 other selectively chosen second-stage firms.
The COCTW program, hosted by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, recognizes companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities and/or create new industries in Colorado. It’s a unique statewide award program that strives to acknowledge those companies that are fueling the economic fire in Colorado, according to their site.
Together the 50 companies named Colorado’s Companies to Watch have some staggering impacts on our state economy. From 2008 through 2011, these companies generated $964 million in revenue and added 902 employees, reflecting a 103 percent increase in revenue and 1-2 percent increase in jobs for the four-year period.
