      Community investment is integral to Denver’s economic growth

      Corporate giving and community investment aren’t just buzz words to throw around in your next board meeting.

      Denver leaders dish on lessons learned from the pursuit of Amazon's HQ2

      Here's why Amazon likely passed over Denver for its second headquarters

      If there was a single overriding factor that led Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) to choose New York City and the Washington, D.C., area over Denver as locations for its second headquarters, it was not what those cities offered financially so much as the absolute size of the potential workforces that will be needed to staff more than 25,000 full-time jobs in each location, the point man for Denver’s bid effort told Denver Business Journal Tuesday.

      'It is what it is': Denver tech community disappointed by Amazon HQ2 snub, but says momentum continues - Denver Business Journal

      There’s a little disappointment, but the general consensus among Denver’s tech community is that the Mile High City will be just fine without Amazon’s second headquarters here. “It is what it is,” said Frannie Matthews, CEO of the Colorado Technology Association. “What this did, though, is highlight this wonderful community that we already have — a great place to live and a thriving, tech-driven business community. So, all effort was not lost and we will reap the benefits for a long time.”

      ​Give gig economy workers equity? The SEC is considering it - Denver Business Journal

      The gig economy has created economic opportunities for millions of people. Uber and Lyft have empowered everyday drivers to become paid chauffeurs. Airbnb has made homeowners hoteliers. And TaskRabbit has opened new markets for handymen and other laborers. But much of the wealth created by these companies is not passed along to workers through conventional wages, but to a small number of insiders who own stock.

      Democrats sweep statewide races, with potential to impact business issues in AG, treasurer's offices

      The blue wave that led Colorado Democrats to take back the state Senate and to keep the governor’s mansion Tuesday also rolled down the statewide ballot, giving the party control of the attorney general’s office, treasurer’s office and secretary of state’s office as well. That sweep of statewide offices gives Democrats control of all four statewide offices and both chambers of the General Assembly for the first time in at least 70 years.

      Both ballot initiatives to increase Colorado transportation funding crash

      Given two opportunities to pump funding into Colorado’s congested and cracking transportation system, voters passed on both Tuesday, leaving the state still searching in vain for a new source of revenue for highways and transit. Statewide voters rejected Proposition 110 — a 0.62-cent, 20-year sales-tax hike that would have produced nearly $22 billion in revenues and funded repayment of a $6 billion bond issue for state highway expansion — by a margin of roughly 60 percent to 40 percent.
