John Honney, managing partner of Bootstrap Capital, has moved to the Denver area and is actively working on investment opportunities along the front range of Colorado.

The decision to leave Chicago after more than 20 years was a difficult one. The people of Chicago and throughout Illinois are among the best in the world and the city is the most livable major city in the country.

But, there are certainly issues that are causing a net loss of 161 people per day, according to this Bloomberg article. And, as Bootstrap Capital became involved in more and more opportunities in the Denver metro area, relocating to the area became an imperative.

John’s phone number remains the same, but please note his new address:

7742 S. Eudora Ct. / Centennial, CO 80122

Please let us know when you are in town.
