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.
