HELPING COLORADO SUCCEED
FOR THE LONG TERM
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!
Congratulations to Juntos Community, a nonprofit initiative supported by Thrives through Techstars Workforce Development Accelerator, which recently received a $310,000 of grant from The Colorado Health Foundation to support the creation of an advocacy program to help Colorado’s dreamers and undocumented families learn how to thrive financially and live healthy lives. Juntos Community’s mission is to help Dreamers learn how to renew and submit their work permits so they can become self-sufficient and self-advocates as they earn wages to help themselves and their families.
We believe corporate citizens have an important role to play in creating a better future for all Coloradans.
