Looking Beyond Silicon Valley

With cities like Denver, Columbus, and Detroit making Amazon’s shortlist of locations for its second headquarters, it’s clear that interior regions are ripe and ready for serious tech growth. Lead by Jason Michael, VP at Barokas PR, this session will discuss the rise of tech hubs emerging in middle America. Panelists including reporter Tamara Chuang (The Colorado Sun), Julie Penner (Techstars), Richard Park (Vertafore) and Pamela Glick (SyncHR) will discuss the appeal of choosing Denver and why tech companies are making the move from Silicon Valley to Denver.
