Who We are

As an entrepreneur, you play an integral role in contributing to our community’s well being and shaping its future.  We know from first-hand experience that starting or running a startup company isn’t easy. That’s why we’re happy to do our part in supporting you and your endeavor.  Welcome to the Colorado Springs Technology Incubator (CSTI)!

CSTI is a non-profit organization run by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We combine the expertise of startup pros, investors, community/ business leaders, and industry partners with a 22,000 square foot facility and state-of-the-art equipment to help entrepreneurs turn their ideas into brilliant reality.  Led by Dr. Ric Denton, a Silicon Valley veteran with extensive experience in taking early stage companies from concept to multimillion dollar businesses, the incubator team and our extensive mentor network provides an array of reduced-rate services, all designed to help entrepreneurs accelerate innovation and company growth.  

Did You Know?

Startup companies in incubators have a higher success rate than those developing without the critical business assistance provided by incubators. More than 65% of incubator-based early-stage companies are likely to receive third party financing, compared to less than 10% of early-stage companies not based in an incubator.

“There’s a lot of poor advice out there, which can seriously damage or kill a new company. Entrepreneurs must be very careful about who they invite on their journey and what advice they take. I’m incredibly grateful to the Incubator team for their wisdom and expertise, which have been invaluable to my company.”
