I always enjoy learning more about other businesses in the tech industry and had a chance to explore several during the CR Tech Crawl. Tech Crawl was created to be an evening of exploring different locations in major cities across Iowa while getting to know fellow Iowans in the industry. Last year the two largest metros of the state played host to a Tech Crawl in both Des Moines and Cedar Rapids. This networking atmosphere, hosted by Clay & Milk, provides incredible opportunities to interact with other tech professionals in the area.
Not only is networking a highlight of the evening, but the time proved to be a great way to hear about the creativity and pioneering of new technologies right here in the Corridor. Some of the participating companies present at the Cedar Rapids Tech Crawl covered industries ranging from hospital and health systems to national IT service providers. Iowa truly has a diverse and growing population of technically skilled professionals who desire to be key players in moving all facets of the industry forward. I was honored to represent Bio::Neos at the CR Tech Crawl and am excited about the local tech industry's trajectory fostered through events like the Tech Crawl! Looking forward to many yet to come!
