On November 6th at the Infinity Center in Denver, in front of a packed room of technology professionals, the Colorado Technology Association held their 19th annual APEX Awards, recognizing the best of the best from around the state. Alan Buller from Fremont Economic Development (FEDC), was awarded “Talent Champion of the Year” for 2019. Alan was recognized for his work with the tech sector portion of Canon City High School’s internship program, hosted at FEDC’s award winning rural co-working and incubator facility on historic Main Street in Canon City.
