NEOSA launched Tech Week in 2011, with the intention to expand on the Best of Tech Awards and create additional awareness of the regional IT industry. In 2012, we grew Tech Week to engage more stakeholders and in 2013 we expanded yet again with community partners.
As a result, we've seen incredible growth in Tech Week participation in three, short years:
2011: 515 attendees
2012: 879 attendees
2013: 1,556 attendees
Community partners such as the Greater Cleveland Partnership, SIM - NEO, JumpStart and others have been key to this substantial growth.
Tech Week brings together entrepreneurs, educators, students, IT executives and others to connect, celebrate and grow our regional tech industry.
Our event series this year included:
Pitch Night with SIM Crain's CIO of the Year Awards Linking IT Talent to Opportunity
Perfecting Your Pitch Spring IT Summit Best of Tech Awards
Growing Tech (Talent) NASA Space Apps Challenge Virtual Job Fair
A re-cap of the week, including event attendance and links to photo galleries can be found here.
