Colorado Cannabis Consumption Device Company Included in Internet of Things Accelerator Program

Earlier this month, Colorado-based GoFire LLC was named as one of the eleven companies included in the inaugural class of TechrIoT XLR8, an accelerator program focused on the Internet of Things (IoT). TechrIoT offers monthly networking and educational events, design mentoring, supply chain access and financing and is backed by Innovation Pavillion, Denver South Economic Development Partnership and Arrow Electronics, the global distributor. The TechrIoT XLR8 is a hybrid program that takes place both virtually (via online interaction) as well as via periodic in-person workshops in Denver, Colorado, over the course of a 6-month period.
