TCNewTech Membership Donations.

TCNewTech is going to remain free to the public and to the presenters. However, in order to maintain our financial viability as an organization, we are asking for members to kick in a minimum $15 a year, which will go towards covering costs like website hosting, software expenses, etc.  What your $15 subscription fee gets you is the right to run for and/or vote for our Board of Directors and a TCNewTech tee shirt (while supplies last). You can pay the $15 fee by cash, check or credit card at the door.


Department of Defense

The Department of Defense will be in Traverse City in October searching for new and emerging technologies. Specifically, they will be looking for technology companies to give presentations on topics such as cyber security; vehicle safety; light weight vehicles, autonomous vehicles and intelligent systems; connected vehicles; advanced storage technologies; propulsion technologies; and active suspension technologies. There are opportunities for no-strings attached technology development contracts. If interested, contact Mike Naughton or Dennis Aroucato discuss further.  As the event gets closer, updated information will be sent out to the membership.


How TCNewTech works:

We have 5 presenters each month. Each presenter is allowed 5 minutes to present and 5 minutes of Q&A (time limits are politely enforced). Between presenters the audience is allowed to make brief announcements for things such as job openings, persons seeking employment, and other events happening in the area related to technology. We also make announcements related to various TCNewTech initiatives such as the area wide fiber-optic, co-working/incubator space, etc.


The audience is typically made up of technology-minded people and consists mostly of programmers, IT staff, people looking for opportunities for their tech company, tech companies looking for staff, individuals looking for investment opportunity, start-up founders at all stages looking for investors and tech geeks that just like learning about new offerings.  Meetups are broadcast live via Facebook live stream. You can watch the live stream on the TCNewTech Facebook page. The videos remain there for later viewing.


After the presentations, attendees mingle for refreshments, food, and networking.


There is no cost to attend or to present at TCNewTech.
