Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
The ETC (Emerging Technology Centers http://www.etcbaltimore.com) –Baltimore City’s award-winning technology innovation center–will host several events during Baltimore’s Innovation Week (BIW), leading up to a networking event “with a twizzt” on Tuesday, September 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. at ETC’s Haven Technology and Innovation Center in Highlandtown, MD.
“Bee in the Buzz” (http://bit.ly/1rMANcW) is the appropriately named networking event that is one of the many scheduled programs that the Beehive, ETC's co-working community of freelancers, entrepreneurs and other creative professionals, will be hosting during BIW. “The twizzt,” commented Jackie Albright, ETC’s Community and Program Manager, “is that in 30 minutes, participants play 3 games and gain at least 3 contacts that can help them move their business forward. It’s more than a networking event,” she continued. “We want attendees to leave with something tangible that they can use to benefit their businesses and expand their network.”
ETC will also be involved throughout BIW as hosts, panelists and speakers.
On September 11th, ETC’s President, Deb Tillett, on behalf of Technical.ly Baltimore, will be part of a dialogue with Baltimore’s City Council and innovation tech leaders to discuss strategies to enhance the city’s technology and innovation scene. Then, on September 15, Tillett, alongside Caroline Worrall, ETC’s former CFO in Residence, will be featured speakers at Women In/Tech (http://bit.ly/1pU3T8O). Lastly, on September 18, Andrew Schuster, co-founder and CEO of NewsUp (http://www.newsup.me), the current-events quiz game and an ETC resident company, will be part of Future of Digital Marketing where he will be presenting a case study titled Gamify your Marketing.
In addition to “Bee in the Buzz” and participation in BIW’s panels, ETC is hosting several events; all part of Tuesday’s Business Track Day (http://bit.ly/1BgOn9I), a one-day conference that focuses on cutting-edge topics where attendees “participate in targeted business boot camps, learn from local leaders on their biggest mistakes, and hear from investors [about] what they're looking for,” as described by BIW’s website. The events include Entrepreneurship Boot Camp, Regional Investor Roundtable, and #Failfest: A Conversation In Failure.
