HELPING COLORADO SUCCEED
FOR THE LONG TERM
Colorado Thrives works to advance the general well-being of the state, all people and all places, through innovation, inclusion and scale.

Managing Director, Caruso Ventures
Founding CEO/Chairman, Zayo Group
Dan Caruso is one of Colorado's most successful and innovative entrepreneurs, and he recently shared his expertise with the 2022 graduating class of MBAs from the CU Leeds School of Business. In his commencement speech, Dan pointed out that “Every product and service is being reimagined, every industry is transforming" and that “each of you is prepared to play a pivotal role in shaping the world. We need you to lean in.” We know that that the next generation of entrepreneurs like Dan will be inspired by his example and passion!
Breakthrough believes that humans are more than their past. Through compassion, connection, and community, Breakthrough helps people rebuild their lives and ultimately help them reintegrate into society—all while challenging outdated perceptions to reform how our country defines criminal justice. Breakthrough prides itself in helping people with criminal histories transform their lives and altering the community’s perception of the incarcerated population. Breakthrough understands that every person deserves to be seen, heard, and challenged to rise above their past to break through to a better tomorrow.
We believe corporate citizens have an important role to play in creating a better future for all Coloradans.
