It feels like summer outside, but I'm not fooled. I know it's fall, because I just sent out a press release for the 7th annual Vermont Tech Jam, which is coming up in a few weeks. Here it is, below:
Burlington, Vt. - Dozens of the state’s fastest growing and most innovative companies will participate in the 7th annual Vermont Tech Jam, a free job fair and tech expo on Friday and Saturday, October 18 and 19, at Memorial Auditorium in downtown Burlington. Job seekers, tech enthusiasts, students and anyone curious about the state’s rapidly expanding tech economy should plan to attend.
The Jam is presented by Dealer.com and MyWebGrocer — two of the area’s largest tech employers. It’s organized by Seven Days, Vermont’s free, independent newsweekly, and the Vermont Technology Alliance, the trade organization supporting Vermont’s tech business community.
“Vermont is home to a remarkable number of fast-growing, innovative technology companies, and the Tech Jam is an opportunity to see many of them all in one place,” said Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance. “From the displays to the panel discussions to the Tech Jam awards, visitors will discover the businesses that are creating world-leading technology products, software and services right here in the Green Mountain state.”
