Now, reports are surfacing out of a newspaper in Denver that Jason Sharkey, the founder of the company was charged with a securities fraud for his role in a real estate scam years ago.
City officials discussed the claims at the economic and development committee meeting Tuesday night.
"Obviously it is a concern of the city," said economic and development director Christian Schock. "We have not paid money out to Quantum Ventures or their team yet, they have made significant investments in the riverfront."
Leaders with Quantum Ventures will be at the city's finance committee meeting Mar. 13 to answer questions.
