@Mikebiselli talks about how they made Colorado the number #5 health cluster in the US

The story began with the discovery that Colorado already had birthed 4 large healthtech companies. They then set about starting to build a hub.

They analysed the local data set and found out there were at least 70 healthtech startups in the city. They then formed @catalystHTI.

Then they found that millennials were flocking to the city of Denver. They were coming because they couldn’t afford to live in the surrounding areas.

Then politicians took notice and started to promote the area in this way. VC firms and other ‘money’ started flowing in as well.

That’s when they decided to build a campus to bring all these elements together.

This all came about due to ‘serendipitous collisions’. That is what they believe leads to new innovations and progress.
