Scaling the Next Summit (Thoughtfully)

For those of you with whom I have had the pleasure of knowing over the years, I’m sure you noticed that I’ve struggled with celebrating success. With each summit attained, I’m off to learn about and solve the next hairy challenge. As we cruised through the new year, Couragion celebrated its third anniversary. I remember wrapping up 2016 thinking “how can we possibly top this year?” with an NSF SBIR Phase I Grant, graduating from the AT&T Aspire accelerator, and finishing the year winning the Emerging Tech Company of the Year from the Colorado Technology Association.

Well let’s say things didn’t slow down in 2017. We won an NSF SBIR Phase II Grant, forged a partnership with CareerWise Colorado, welcomed new school districts, and won an Advanced Industries Grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

2018 is starting off with a bang. We’re welcoming new members to the Couragion team – joining us are Christian Booty as our Education & Workforce Partnerships Manager and Keenan Hursh as our Digital Storyteller. We’re thrilled to have them on board – please help me welcome them to the team!

Cheers to another year of continuing to champion career literacy, informed and inspired student decision making, work-based learning and workforce credentialing, and teacher professional learning initiatives!
