FORT COLLINS - Jeff Poore, president and COO of Loveland-based Numerica Corp., is the newest member of the board of directors for the Rocky Mountain Innosphere, a nonprofit technology incubator.
"Innosphere is fortunate to have Jeff Poore as a new board member," said Mark Wdowik, assistant vice president for research and industry partnerships at Colorado State University and chair of the RMI board.
"We are looking forward to working with our growing and more diverse board, and Jeff's extensive entrepreneurial and business development experience base, and guidance in understanding how to promote the development of a regional entrepreneurial ecosystem, will be an invaluable asset to the organization."
"I want to do all I can to help grow small business in Northern Colorado," said Poore. "The Innosphere promises to do just that by accelerating entrepreneurship and job creation in our high-tech sector. I'm excited to support such an important economic engine for our region."
Poore co-founded the NoCo Talent Task Force and NoCo Defense Contractor's Network. Under his leadership, Numerica received the U.S. Small Business Administration's 2011 Tibbetts Award, which recognizes exceptional innovation and commercialization efforts in the Small Business Innovation Research program.
Numerica was also honored by former Gov. Bill Ritter and the Edward Lowe Foundation as a 2009 Colorado Company to Watch.
