Business Partners

Business Leaders of the Year Award presented to


Presented in partnership with The Chamber & EDC

Leaders in business share an interest in quality of life, essential to attracting and retaining a creative and driven workforce. A vibrant local culture is often deciding the factor when recruiting for our business. At dpiX, we know all too well that a vibrant business and a vibrant community are inextricable intertwined.

The Colorado Springs Philharmonic has done so much to promote quality of life. In turn, I’m calling on business leaders to help safeguard this irreplaceable asset.

Business Partners receive tailored benefits for entertaining clients and employees, and attention-getting media and marketing recognition. I commend this opportunity to you now, and urge you to join the growing list of Business Partners.
