Talking Tech at the Penticton Innovation Centre

Tech Talk is a casual networking opportunity to come and speak with like-minded tech sector people: employees, owners and interested people.

Next week, the Penticton Innovation Centre is playing host to its first networking event.

Tech Talk is a casual networking opportunity to come and speak with like-minded tech sector people: employees, owners and interested people.

Andrew Greer, Accelerate Okanagan’s community manager for the Penticton Innovation Centre, said about 25 people are already registered for the event. There won’t be any big speeches, Greer said, just business people talking to business people, making connections, finding out who else is out there in Penticton and South Okanagan.

“It is meant to be a grassroots networking opportunity (likely to be held monthly) for entrepreneurs, employees, and people interested in the tech sector,” said Greer, adding that they are welcoming the whole range of tech sector workers.

“Not just information and communications tech, but also clean/green tech, agricultural tech, and medical tech,” said Greer. “If you produce and sell technology or technology services, or have thought about doing so, you should come.”

That includes, he continued, those running a business as well as employees, people working on ideas in their basement or just interested people.

There is no cost to attend Tech Talk, which will be held  on July 12, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Penticton Innovation Centre in room 256 of the  Centre for Excellence at Okanagan College’s Penticton Campus.
