Dozens of people gathered at the Black Tooth Brewing Co. Thursday night for a special presentation by a local business owner and current CEO of one of the state's fastest growing internet technology companies. The presentation was part of the Wyoming Technology Business Center's Entrepreneur-to-Entrepreneur program. Chris Foy has more.


The CEO of Sheridan-based Ptolemy Data Systems Ryan Mulholland took to the stage to share the story of how his business grew from just an idea in 2008 to what it is today. Just two months ago, Ptolemy powered up its massive 6,000 square-foot data center here in town with clients ranging from government, private to finance sectors.

Mulholland explains what it takes to create a successful business.

While designing his business plan, Mulholland said he was asked a question over and over by prospective investors. Why choose Wyoming?

Assistant director of the Wyoming Technology Business Center John Dick, on behalf of the University of Wyoming, said these meetings help encourage local entrepreneurs.

Dick said he encourages anyone interested in starting a business to get in touch with him with any unanswered questions. To find out more about the program, contact John Dick at 766-6384 or visit www.uwyo.edu/WTBC.
