HELPING COLORADO SUCCEED
FOR THE LONG TERM
Colorado Thrives exists to advance Colorado as an inspiring and inclusive community known globally for innovation, collaboration, and overall well-being.
We are led by a group of 14 current and former executives, primarily CEOs, from some of Colorado’s largest companies who have made a commitment to collectively leverage our voices, platforms, talent and resources to help Colorado thrive for the long-term.
Co-Founder & CEO, Guild Education
Welcome our newest member Rachel Carlson! As the Co-founder of a homegrown Colorado company that was recently valued at $3.75 billon, Rachel understands the important role business can play in addressing civic issues. Guild Education's focus on upskilling opportunities for all Americans dovetails with Thrives' focus on workforce readiness, and we are overjoyed that Rachel will bring her considerable talents and energy to Thrives' work.
Honest Jobs recently added an office in Colorado, and is already hard at work offering employers and job-seekers a new matching resource. They offer a fair-chance employment marketplace that helps people impacted by the criminal justice system find employment. This fast-growing company provides hands-on placement services with a guaranteed retention period, as well as sourcing from a qualified applicant pool for job applicants who are ready and eager to work. Add your company to the growing list of employers (including many Thrives members) that hire from their talented pool.
We believe corporate citizens have an important role to play in creating a better future for all Coloradans.
