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.
