Tech innovation is happening in Ohio and TECH CORPS is educating, exciting and empowering the next generation of technology creators, designers, innovators and leaders! We were so grateful to be part of the inaugural Ohio Tech Summit hosted at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio hosted by OhioX. We met tech innovators from all over the state and even got to speak with Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb.
Two of our TECH CORPS board members spoke at the 250-person event. John Phelan, EVP, Chief Product Officer at Hyland was part of a panel discussion about how Ohio’s biggest names are building our future. Doug McCollough, Chief Executive Officer at Color Coded Labs gave a 9-minute innovation spring explaining how the skill of learning will be the ‘one skill to rule them all’ fueling our future.
Longterm and new TECH CORPS partners were also featured speakers. Bai ju Shah, President and CEO for Greater Cleveland Partnership and Michelle Avery, Partner + VP, Engineering at WillowTree were part of a discussion on building Cleveland and Ohio’s tech hubs.
The April 23rd event was a huge success and is helping to position Ohio as the Silicon Heartland!
