When you think of Cheyenne, do you think of a technology happening kind of place?
Most people think about the wide open spaces, the beautiful landscape and access to outdoor recreation. We have all of those wonderful things and technology. We are the home to UCAR/NCAR! Globally this is a HUGE deal, National Center for Atmospheric Research. They are integral in predicting our weather, giving scientists the capabilities to measure what has never been measured before. Their latest computer was named “Cheyenne” after the Capitol City and home of their facility. The information derived from the Center is incredible and is one of the main sources of data for even our Nation’s military.
Also, we are home to several data centers, Greenhouse Data and Microsoft. There is also Echostar in Cheyenne who is the leading satellite communications company in the world! When you are having to stay up on your latest episodes of Netflix original shows, well Echostar probably had their hand in getting you that show. Why all of this technology you might ask? Laramie County provides the optimal climate for computers.
If you have ever seen Mrs. Congenelality you will get the quote, “April 25th when it is not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.”
That is the perfect description of why our area is a prime location for technology based businesses. What this means for the community, more opportunities for careers in the technology sector and a growing economic base.
