Stephen Patterson

Stephen Patterson started his entrepreneurial career at just 29 years old with a focus in technology.   In 2002, Stephen founded his first telecommunications company which he sold 3 years later that enabled him to lead his subsequent ventures.  With a vision to provide industry leading software-based products to fulfill the demand for interactive experiences, Stephen founded Broadnet which is known for its flagship product, AccessLive.  

Today, Broadnet’s customer list includes teams from every major sporting league in the United States including the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and MLS as well as every Presidential candidate since 2004, most Members of Congress, and large membership organizations around the world.   Broadnet’s customers all have one common trait in that they all enjoy large audiences that are interested in real-time access with thought leaders, recognized personalities and entertainment figures.

Under Stephen’s leadership, Broadnet has been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States and has also ranked as the fastest growing company in Colorado and the top 5 fastest growing companies nationally in software.  Broadnet holds the World Record for simultaneous attendees on a single conversation and has enabled over 3 billion conversations on its patented network. Fostering an open and collaborative atmosphere with a contemporary leadership style, Stephen and his colleagues have been able to develop a portfolio of new products and services that allow Broadnet to maintain a strong leadership position within the category.  Currently, Broadnet is redefining live audience engagement and how brands connect with their clients and constituents on any device on a multitude of platforms.  

As a resident of Colorado and an avid skier, Stephen spends his free time enjoying the mountains with his wife Angie and their three children.
