InnovatioNews ends 9-year run covering Colorado innovation

Friday August 20, 2021

LOVELAND -- InnovatioNews, a unique online publication spotlighting the latest in innovation across Colorado, has ended its publication after a nine-year run.

The publication began posting stories, blogs and interviews of Colorado's innovation movers and shakers on June 1, 2012.

Never accepting advertising, the publication relied on grants and sponsorships for its survival. 

Eventually, that wasn't enough.

"We thank our loyal readers and sponsors who stuck with us through the years," said Steve Porter, InnovatioNews editor.

InnovatioNews earned numerous awards from the Colorado Press Association during its run, including Best Website in its category.

"We believe there is a place for this kind of coverage, especially in a state like Colorado, which has a high level of innovation activity," said Publisher Lee Porter.

"We were probably a little ahead of our time.

"We look forward to another website picking up the torch and resuming daily coverage of Colorado's innovation scene at some point in the not-too-distant future."
