Eight Colorado Springs or El Paso County companies have a shot at being named one of the state’s 50 “Companies to Watch.”

For companies to be considered for the list they must demonstrate a focus on growth, be privately held, be headquarted in Colorado Springs, employ between six and 99 people and have annual sales or working capital between $750,000 and $50 million.
