Data-analysis giant Palantir is moving its headquarters to Denver
Wednesday, August 19, 2020
Palantir Technologies Inc., a $20 billion data-analysis software firm that sells its products to governments to help them track everything from immigrants to terrorists to the spread of coronavirus, is relocating its headquarters from Palo Alto, California, to Denver.
Company officials have not yet responded to Denver Business Journal's requests for interviews, but the firm now lists Denver as its headquarters on its website, its social media pages and its Wikipedia entry — changes believed to have been made quietly on Tuesday. The address 1555 Blake St. is listed as its Denver location with the Colorado Secretary of State and on its LinkedIn profile, although it's not clear if that's where the ultimate headquarters will be.
The move comes after CEO Alex Karp told Axios during a May interview on HBO that he was getting close to a decision on whether to move the company out of California, citing in particular the “increasing intolerance and monoculture of Silicon Valley.” And he specifically cited Colorado as a potential destination.
