Consumer electronics startup GOTRAX™ has made its home in the heart of the Mile-High City. The new Denver-based brand recently launched its science-inspired line of HOVERFLY hoverboards with more electric rideables on the horizon and is currently ramping up its marketing and operations teams.

These characters are designed to make learning fun and will inspire high-profile interactive contests and campaigns in Colorado and around the country. Blog and social media content will also incorporate timely and educational topics relating to science and technology.

Wakefield aims to utilize his experience in the market to not only launch the tech toys to success but build a company and culture as fun as the rideables themselves.
