Grab your tickets and get more info here! Let's drop a Beat...


The Big One

A breakdown on the day's biggest Inno story.

Uber for RTD

Uber announced a unique partnership this week with the Regional Transportation District, bringing the state's public transportation onto the ride-sharing giant's platform.

In a blog post on the company's site, Uber announced that this partnership would be the first ever integration with public transit in the United States.

When riders enter their destination on the Uber app, they'll see "Transit" next to other available transportation options. Once selected, they'll be able to view available transit routes that will get them to their destination, along with real-time departure and arrival times, and receive walking directions to and from the transit stations.

The real kicker is that soon you'll be able to purchase RTD tickets using the Uber app.

"Our customers want their trips to be as seamless as possible, and a collaboration like this one allows them to plan for travel from end to end, including additional first mile and last mile options," said David Genova, RTD CEO and GM. "RTD is pleased to work with Uber as we present riders with additional, complementary options to most efficiently reach their destination."

While the program has launched first here in Colorado, Uber is hoping to expand this to other major metropolitan areas in the near future.

Making Moves

Inside the people, companies and organizations making moves today.

12 Sports Startups to Watch

With the Super Bowl just days away (more on that in the Random Section), the Inno network took a look at 12 athletically focused startups making waves in each of their respective ecosystems.

In Colorado, we decided to highlight former Olympian Scott Shipley's engineering firm S2O Design for their work changing the way whitewater parks are built around the world.

To see the 11 other startups that made the list, check out the network-wide story here.

Social Impact Through PopSockets

Boulder-based PopSockets launched a new social impact program yesterday, called Poptivism, to benefit a host of nonprofit organizations.

When users purchase a specific PopSocket grip, 50 percent of that sale goes to the associated non-profit.

Want to donate to K9s for Warriors? Grab a Buck the service dog PopSocket and 50 percent of the sale will be donated.

Tech Madness Nominations

Know of a growing startup or just one with a great idea? Well, there is still one week remaining for Colorado Inno's Tech Madness nominations.

In this bracket-style challenge, readers get to submit startups to participate in a friendly competition designed to generate awareness and excitement for the local innovation community. Nominations remain open until February 8.

In March, we'll reveal the bracket. We will seed the "teams" based on a variety of factors including funding raised, number of employees and insights from our editorial staff on trajectory. Voting for each match will be open to community voting, with readers answering just one question - who would you invest in?

Get your nominations in here and make sure to share the competition with others.

Another Year, Another Super Bowl

For the ninth time in my life, my beloved Patriots will appear in the Super Bowl this weekend.

After last year's heartbreak at the hands of Nick Foles, I'm preparing myself for any result.

But I can assure you, win or lose, the Beat will be back on Monday. As Bill Belichick and the Patriots have commanded, we will abide by 'Do Your Job.'

Have a great weekend and go Pats!
