Innovation Park’s TechTopics Series
At Innovation Park, we believe that new innovative ideas come from collaborating with others. Three times a year, we host our TechTopics event, which brings together members of our community to learn about Innovation Park, its residents, and the research being conducted in the Park, as well as the Big Bend Region. We believe that showcasing and sparking conversations about these subjects can foster new ideas, while also making the community aware of the world-class research, facilities, technology, resources, commercialization and entrepreneurship taking place in the park.
All of our TechTopics events take place at one of our facilities in Innovation Park. The event begins at 11:30am with grabbing lunch and networking. Our speakers begin at 11:35am, and includes time for discussions and questions. The event wraps up at 1:30pm.
Over the past few events, our audience has grown, so we suggest getting there right at 11:30am to get a good seat.
Our TechTopics events are FREE and open to the public. Lunch is provided complimentary to all of our attendees.
Our next TechTopics event will be taking place on Wednesday, November 15th in the CAPS Seminar Room. As part of Startup Week Tallahassee, we will be focusing on innovative companies in our community, how they’ve grown and their impact on Tallahassee. Plan for an exciting and thought provoking discussion! Speakers include:
Chris Eldred, President and CEO, TeligentEMS
Gus Ray,President and CEO, Baycom Diagnostics
Jim Cole, President and CEO, G5 Engineering Solutions
Kay Stephenson, President and CEO, Datamaxx Applied Technologies Inc.
