Register to Participate

Go Code Colorado is a competition that challenges multidisciplinary teams to turn public data into useful business insights and tools. Since 2014, hundreds of developers, designers, business and marketing professionals, analysts, entrepreneurs and other big thinkers have participated. Go Code Colorado and its participants also have enjoyed the support of dozens of private sector partners, as well as the many state agencies that provide the public data used in the competition.

Go Code Colorado begins with the Kick-off in February, followed by Challenge Weekend events held simultaneously in five cities across the state in April. Two finalist teams are chosen from each location to participate in an immersive Mentor Weekend. Finalists then present their business insights and tools to a distinguished panel of judges at a Final Competition Event in June. Three teams are chosen as the winners of Go Code Colorado at the Final Competition Event.
