Remote Colorado: Home to Cantaloupes… and Life Saving Technology
There’s lots of recognition that Denver and the Front Range where the weight of our economy is centered. That’s why when I recorded the last episode of ProCO360, with guest Jack Barker of Innovative Water Technologies, I felt compelled to highlight that his company is doing amazing work from its global headquarters (and only location) in Rocky Ford! Where’s that? Go south to Pueblo, then east and little south for an hour.
Why Rocky Ford? Because Jack lived near there when he built a prototype, and a building that had been sitting vacant for over 10 years was offered to him. Now Innovative Water Technologies’ SunSpring has produced and installed over 850 solar/wind powered water filtrations systems being used by communities all over the world, preventing disease, serving emergency needs, the military and more. Jack’s story is a great reminder that Colorado – the whole state of Colorado – is a great place for business innovation!
