The Boulder Startup Week family is thrilled to welcome back Zayo Group as a platinum sponsor for BSW2017! Thanks to generous sponsors like Zayo Group, BSW2017 remains a free, community-oriented five-day extravaganza of all things Boulder and startups.
Zayo is in the communications infrastructure business, meeting the growing need for high-capacity bandwidth. Its customers include some of the world’s largest carriers, media and Internet companies – along with healthcare, finance organizations and other large enterprises. Today, Zayo’s global reach extends to more than 70 markets in 37 countries. Not bad for a company that got its start at an office above Nick n Willy’s in 2006.
Zayo’s mission and vision are transformative:
While Zayo IPO’d in 2014, Zayo continues to rely on its entrepreneurial approach to expand its infrastructure footprint. Since Boulder Startup Week 2016, it has acquired additional companies (to bring the total to 41 ) and expanded its network footprint by 10,000 miles (122,000 route miles total).
As Zayo continues to grow they continue their support of the vibrant startup community in Boulder by providing opportunities for diverse candidates. They team up with organizations like , Greenhouse Scholars, Built In Colorado, CU’s Wild Summit, Startup Summer and more, to promote entrepreneurship, attract underrepresented groups to STEM fields and help empower the Colorado technology community. If that doesn’t say enough, Zayo also earned the Progressive Board Award by the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce in recognition of women on their board of directors, and was the 2015 inaugural recipient of the Colorado Governor’s Citizenship Medal for corporate citizenship. Learn more about their work in the community.
Zayo also encourages its employees to get involved in the Boulder startup community. In the words of CEO Dan Caruso, “Zayo is a vibrant example of Boulder’s startup ecosystem, and we are proud to support our incredible entrepreneurial community through events like Boulder Startup Week.”
