The IRT, under the interim leadership of Matt Blumberg, a technology entrepreneur and founder of Return Path email software in Broomfield, is tasked with:
• Developing a statewide system for mass testing and rapid results.
• Developing mobile and other technologies to help track the virus spread and support infected citizens.
• Creating a suite of services for citizens under isolation or quarantine.
• Developing locally sourced alternatives to secure critical medical supplies.
IRT leadership also includes:
• Sarah Tuneburg, CEO of Geospezia, who will eventually lead the team
• Brad Feld, a Boulder-based venture capitalist, who will chair the IRT’s Private Sector Task Force and coordinate private-sector volunteer activities in manufacturing, telemedicine and at-home service delivery.
• Noel Ginsburg, a member of the Chamber Board of Directors and CEO of Careerwise, who has committed to using his network and companies to start manufacturing personal protective equipment in Colorado.
