Innovative Tech Company, HNA Live, Chooses Denver for New Headquarters
DENVER – HNA Live, a data analytics company that serves manufacturing and real estate industries, has selected Denver, Colorado for its new headquarters. The Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (EDC), Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade and the Global Business Development Division of Colorado Office were pivotal in helping HNA Live choose Denver.
“The Metro Denver EDC was pleased to be able to showcase the entire Metro Denver Region to HNA Live during their site search, and we are excited to have them landing in Denver to bolster the already thriving start-up ecosystem. We would like to thank all our economic development partners that assisted in bringing HNA Live to Colorado,” said Morgan Alu, director of International Development and Special Projects for the Metro Denver EDC.
The Metro Denver EDC lead the site selection process for HNA Live, showing them sites in nine different communities including Aurora, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, Denver South, Lakewood, Louisville, Northern Colorado and Westminster.
The placement of their headquarters in Denver will lead HNA Live to add to an already growing technology sector and support the growth of Colorado’s manufacturing and real estate industries. The company expects to create 36+ net new jobs in sales, engineering, executive and administrative roles, with an average annual wage of above $99,000, which is 132% of the average annual wage in Denver County.
“Colorado and the Front Range are home to a growing roster of tech companies that are changing the way more traditional sectors do business. We’re pleased to welcome HNA Live to Colorado, where the company’s spirit of innovation will add to this technological revolution and support the state’s thriving economy,” said Patrick Meyers, executive director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.
HNA Live provides uncharted data insight technology for manufacturing executives to get visibility of their globally distributed plants to solve complex problems. The 360-degree real-time visibility of their globally distributed plants is at their fingertips, saving them expensive time and travel, meetings and lead time, and it provides recommendations and solutions for the problems it identifies.
“Denver’s rich assets continue to make our city an attractive place to do business; from The Commons on Champa - that offers newer companies, such as HNA Live, a place to ‘land’ while they are navigating the complexities of starting a new company, to marquee events like Denver StartUp Week that bring players across the industry together to mingle and innovate. We’re thrilled to welcome another successful tech company to our thriving ecosystem in Denver!” said Jen Morris, Denver Economic Development & Opportunity Executive Director.
The Metro Denver EDC is thrilled to have had the opportunity to show HNA Live the Metro Denver region and be a deciding factor in their decision. We look forward to HNA Live being a positive impact on the growth and development of Denver’s tech industry and community.
