Join us for an Industry Connect event and equip your team with the knowledge and best practices of how to be effective at networking events. Industry Connect events leverage existing industry tradeshows/conferences in specific, and relevant industries including (not exhaustive): Agriculture, Mobility, Internet of Things, Big Data, Defense, Energy, and Healthcare. This program lends teams the opportunity to introduce themselves, pitch their idea to technology decision makers, setup follow-on meetings, acquire feedback on their best path forward, and identify key milestones. This unique program gives teams the opportunity to connect with like-minded innovators across the Midwest.
