Panel Discussion: Starting a business in tech / reaching second stage.

This panel discussion will feature a discussion geared toward those who may want to start a tech business as well as established business who are reaching second stage. 

• Carol Ann Dykes - Site Manager for The UCF Business Incubator – Central Florida Research Park (the former UCF Technology Incubator) which supports emerging high technology companies and helps them become financially stable business enterprises.

• Tammie Nemecek - Director for GrowFL - the program of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute at the University of Central Florida which provides strategies, resources and support to second-stage companies for next level growth.

Alongside Carol and Tammie, we will have two tech CEOs who fit both of these types of companies (startup and second stage) speaking about their experiences as female or minority business owners in the world of tech. 

The Tech Law Firm, a woman-owned company, will be sponsoring wine and cheese for this event. 

If you arrive past 6, the elevators may be locked. Please tweet us at http://www.twitter.com/echointeraction and someone can go get you at the lobby of the South tower of the Plaza.

    Hello everyone!

    Please take a few minutes to vote for apps to be pitched live at the Young Technopreneurs Showcase tomorrow. These were built over the past 12 weeks by Florida middle and high school students to address an issue in their community, a women's issue, or a teen issue.

    Thanks for voting, and feel free to join us tomorrow at 5:30 at Melrose Center (2nd floor of the downtown Orlando library) to see the winning teams pitch their tech startups!

    Last night combined the best Meetups can offer - two excellent speakers enthused about their work with enormous resources to offer who engaged completely with the group conversation, great networking with equally passionate attendees, a chance to brainstorm, ask questions, share ideas to build our businesses and our community.

    This was a great, lively, participative discussion about what we can do to help advance women and minorities in tech and entrepreneurship. Love the passion people have, it was a great energy. Thanks to everybody who came!

      What floor is it on? I have been there- but don't recall. I may come a bit early as another meeting will have wound down by then. So closer to 6:00 then.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
