Since 2012, the Denver OED has named deserving companies to the annual Gazelle list. Gazelles exhibit exponential job growth, high potential for further growth and a commitment to the local entrepreneurial scene, according to the OED. Over the next 10 years, the city expects companies like the Gazelles to be responsible up to 50 percent of the city's job growth. Past Gazelles include Galvanize, Full Contact and Inspirato.
"Everyone's hard work at MindAptiv has brought us to this moment — being named a Gazelle by Denver's Office of Economic Development is an amazing honor," said Ken Granville, co-founder and CEO of MindAptiv. "In five years we've taken the company from bootstrapping to $5.8 million in angel funding and deals with Fortune 150 companies."
During 2016, MindAptiv doubled its staff and advanced from a startup incubator to its own office in the Denver Tech Center (DTC). In addition to illumin8, the company is also working on several other products, which will be introduced in the coming months.
"illumin8 is just a preview of the technology that MindAptiv is developing," said Michael Cushman, a MindAptiv advisor and the senior fellow at the DaVinci Institute. "Everything they do is based on rethinking software on the most fundamental level, and that's going to lead to a whole lot of surprises for the computing world."
Unhappy with the status quo in technology, Ken Granville and Jake Kolb founded MindAptiv in 2011. The company, based in the Denver Tech Center, is redefining innovation with software that adapts to the user and empowering the world to Create at the Speed of Thought™. Its first consumer product, illumin8, will make photo and video files dramatically smaller and enable faster, more efficient distribution of digital content. The company's investors include former Denver Bronco Rod Smith. Learn more at http://mindaptiv.com
