A venture capital firm that funds startups in the West is opening offices in Colorado.

Driving the news: Kickstart, a Utah-based seed-stage venture capital firm, said in a statement recently it will open an office in Denver.

  • The firm manages $487 million in assets, after recently closing on $230 million in funding for startups in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

What’s next: Dalton Wright, a general partner with the firm, is moving his family to Colorado this summer to open the offices.

Of note: Since its founding in 2008, the firm has invested in more than 200 companies across the region, including Artemis, Chatbooks, Havenly, Nomad, Sondermind, Spiff, and Taskeasy.
