The mission of the Southern Colorado Technology Alliance (SCTA) is to promote, support and nurture the aerospace, defense, and their dependent supply-chain industries in Southern Colorado and along Colorado’s Front Range. SCTA is a 501(c)(6) member-based, non-profit designed to leverage the passion and innovative spirit found in small businesses to collaborate, create, prototype, develop and deliver solutions for complex problems, quickly, reliably, and affordably. SCTA accelerates business growth by providing a platform to remove barriers and increase opportunities for members to bid on government and commercial contracts.
SCTA’s collaborative ecosystem offers entrepreneurs and businesses access to opportunities and military and industry leaders by building relationships that increase opportunities for teaming arrangements and potentially enhance contract eligibility. The alliance relies on medium and large-size businesses to mentor small businesses through the challenges of operating a business. SCTA recruits companies willing to collaborate with others in an open environment by protecting the collective best interests and intellectual property of the membership.
SCTA facilitates peer-to-peer networking and relationship building via a myriad of learning programs, CEO forums, social hours and partnership opportunities that offer the chance to foster trust between companies, stay relevant and competitive in the marketplace, and promote statewide connectivity. SCTA promotes the unique resources of Southern Colorado as an economic force on the state and national political scene and supports political advocacy and dialogue with decisions makers while providing a unified voice for advanced technology industries to include aerospace, defense, homeland security, cybersecurity, advanced manufacturing, information technology, and electronics. Members are the leading voices for the advanced technology industry needs.
