.@Arrow_Global believes technology can address social concerns in new ways

Arrow Electronics has established partnerships in our metro Denver headquarters’ community out of the fundamental conviction that the creative process in the arts and innovation in technology are intrinsically connected and must be nurtured. We engage in innovative social initiatives with the belief that technology can address persistent social concerns in new ways, while also helping clients in more productive and innovative ways. 

  • Rose Andom Center: Arrow support includes data center design, employment counseling and communications services, as well as refurbished electronics for staff and clients.
  • Cherry Creek Arts Festival: Arrow’s Five Years Out competition attracted submissions from 75 artists; five finalists were selected. The finalists were added to the company’s collection of commissioned artwork at Arrow’s headquarters in southeast metro Denver, as well as Arrow offices around the world.
  • Colorado Symphony: In 2015, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (CSO) performed the entire Arrow “Five Years Out” overture. This original musical composition reflects Arrow’s commitment to innovation and represents the orchestra’s expansion into creating original music.
