Tucked into the eastern slope of the Colorado Rockies in an anonymous business park, magic is brewing. On the south side of Colorado Springs incredible feats are running rampant. At 6,035 feet (1839m) the ground work for the extraordinary is being laid….. one handmade piece at a time. In the shadow of Pike’s Peak dream makers and technology leaders are one of the same and instead of “why” leading meetings and watercooler discourse….the creative, crazy brave engineers look at a product and music market and ask “why not.” Although the energy that permeates this place of cutting edge technology has no name, the location and people that make this collective band of engineers, marketing gurus, road warriors and industry pioneers does.
The invitation to visit and perform at Westone was a very exciting email to wake to a few weeks ago. I pulled up to the low slung business-meets-warehouse designed building that from far away, blends in with any of the litany of business park tenants you drive by in that area of “The Springs,” however the orange letters out front and festooned on the front door serve as a beacon for the creativity and excitement that sets it apart from it’s neighbors, and as I would soon learn, it’s market peers.
