GRAND JUNCTION, CO (May 25, 2021) – Last week, the Economic Development Commission, a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), approved Hayden Data for the Rural Jump-Start Program, a Colorado incentive program that provides companies located in rural areas with significant tax breaks if they bring a new technology, product or service to the state.
“We are very pleased with the local support from GJEP and the approval of our Jump-Start application. This encouraging support will help Hayden Data to grow our presence in Grand Junction and to contribute our share to the economic development of the region,” said Hayden Data CEO Steve Whitehurst.
Hayden Data has developed a patent-pending technology to monitor structural, environmental and operational conditions of infrastructure equipment including utility poles, oil and gas assets and telecommunications towers. The technology is particularly useful to help identify fires and other issues before they become catastrophic events.
“Particularly rural Colorado, characterized by wildfire risk and remoteness will greatly benefit from seeing the deployment of our technology across transmission and distribution infrastructure in the region,” said Florian Gegier, Director of Sales and Business Development at Hayden Data. “Making the power grid and communities safer and more resilient is our mission, after all.”
