The next event is Tuesday – November  1st, 2016 – 6:00pm. In partnership with Grand Traverse Area Manufacturing Council, TCNewTech will highlight manufacturing technology in the region.


The venue remains the same, Ecco Event Space located beneath Front Row Center at 121 E. Front Street, Traverse City, MI.  Look for the Red Door. We greatly appreciate that the venue was once again sponsored by Charter Spectrum, tv, internet and phone (Charter.net).

How TCNewTech works:

We have 5 presenters each month. Each presenter is allowed 5-minutes to present and 5-minutes of question and answers (time limits are politely enforced). Between each presenter the audience is allowed to make brief announcements for things such as job openings, persons seeking employment, other events happening in the area related to technology, etc. 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 consist of 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 things.  Meetups are live broadcast 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.
