We're excited to announce that Google's Boulder office has come on board as Go Code Colorado's Summit Partner!

500 Reasons to Sign Up

As part of their partnership, they will be giving $500 in Google Cloud Platform credits to ALL Go Code Colorado participants!

Yes, you read that correctly; as long as you attend a Go Code Colorado Challenge Weekend, you will receive the credits, which you can put toward:

  • App Engine
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Google BigQuery
  • Google Cloud SQL
  • Google Translate
  • Google Prediction API
  • Google Compute Engine

Offering this package to all attendees, not just finalists, is truly generous and will only make building apps, building business and building Colorado that much easier.

We are so grateful to Google (and the rest of our business partners and data partners) for their support.

How Does Your Location Stack Up?

We have talked to a lot of folks throughout the state and quite a few have said that Boulder is not the only tech hub in Colorado.

And while we absolutely agree there is talent in all four corners of Colorado, the participant numbers right now support Boulder: nearly 45% of all participants are headed to the Boulder Challenge Weekend.

The Kick-Off Event has recently sold out, and we expect to reach capacity at several of our locations. Don't miss out on $50k in cash awards, up to $250,000 in grants, $500 in Google Cloud Platform credits and many additional in-kind incentives!

If you've already signed up, engage with other team members on CollabFinder to get your creative juices flowing.

Go Where You Want

Otterbox Headquarters

Remember, you can compete at any of our 5 locations across Colorado, even if you are not a resident of that location.

If you are tired of Boulder getting the tech credit, then sign up for a different location!

Check out Otterbox in Ft. Collins. Have we mentioned the slide?

Or head down to Colorado Springs, and take advantage of the additional incentives if you win Go Code Colorado!
