It’s been a techie week in Denver, everyone.

First, Galvanize solidified a whole bunch of of funding, and then Denver-based FullContact announced Wednesday its acquisition of a Boulder-based start-up.

If you don’t know FullContact, it is a contact management platform that makes a suite of apps and APIs designed to broaden and unify the business networks of its users.

FullContact started in 2010 with about 100 users. Today, FullContact manages 40 billion customer contact records and has secured $50 million in venture capital funding in the past five years — including the $25 million it pulled in just last week.

FullContact’s new acquisition, Conspire, is a web analytics company whose technology analyzes online communications to determine how well its users know their various contacts. It takes that data and uses it to connect its users to potentially beneficial contacts in their extended business networks.

“By incorporating Conspire’s unique analytics offerings into FullContact, we’re ushering in a new era of professional networking where personal contacts, in addition to social media sites, are the basis for creating meaningful connections with customers, prospects and other professionals,” Bart Lorang, co-founder and CEO of FullContact, said in a statement.

Before the acquisition, FullContact employed 73 in Denver and 101 worldwide. In a statement, a spokesperson for the company said they pan to double their workforce in the coming year.
