DENVER - Comcast Corporation, one of the nation's leading providers of information and communications products and services, announced that Galvanize has selected Comcast Business Class Ethernet to provide bandwidth connectivity to its entrepreneur and startup company members.

Galvanize, launched in October in a 30,000-square-foot collaborative workplace facility at 1062 Delaware, is an innovation ecosystem that provides capital, community and curriculum to some of Denver's leading digital entrepreneurs and technology startups including ROXIMITY, Uber, GoSpotCheck and Forkly.

"We chose Comcast because they were not only the clear leader in Business Class Ethernet, but they came highly recommended from trusted friends, colleagues and other businesses in the area," said Jim Deters, Galvanize founder.

"Comcast's strong interest in aligning with a community focused on innovation affirmed in our mind that we had found the right partner.

"High-speed connectivity is like oxygen to our community - it must be insanely fast, plentiful and reliable."

"For entrepreneurs, we know that scalable and reliable connectivity is second only to coffee in terms of importance," said Rich Jennings, regional senior vice president of Comcast in Colorado.

"While Comcast isn't in the caffeine business, we have connectivity handled. It's no secret that advanced technology is the foundation for success in the startup world, and that's why it's so rewarding to partner with forward-thinking organizations such as Galvanize to support entrepreneurs and power the next generation of innovation."

Galvanize is designed to support the development of fast-growth digital companies through mentorship, venture funding and flexible space to innovate. For more information, visit http://galvanize.it/.
