Tech Tuesday Format

Networking, Networking, Networking

By design, approximately three-fourths of each Tech Tuesday event is devoted to networking. With attendances usually exceeding 150, Tech Tuesday events are the perfect opportunity for inventors, entrepreneurs, service providers, and TVC's knowledgeable staff to meet and forge strategic relationships.

Format Description

Following the co-host speaker presentation, a number of TVC's Business and Development Technology Managers (BDTMs) will perform short speed pitches to the audience on two or three new, marketable technologies developed by University of Utah faculty. After these speed pitches, the BDTMs will be available to talk to interested parties at showcases setup in the event room where informational materials may be acquired.
