A three-day conference in Madison this week will highlight the most impactful trends and policy challenges facing tech companies.
That’s according to Doug Robertson, chairman of the board of directors for the Technology Councils of North America. The 2019 TECNA Summer Conference is being hosted by the Wisconsin Technology Council today through Thursday.
“This will be an opportunity to hear first-hand from people who are immersed in the dynamic industry that is tech,” Robertson told WisBusiness.com. “We’re going to talk about initiatives that we’re delivering to help our companies grow. … We learn from each other at conferences like this.”
Aside from his board position with TECNA, he’s also the president and CEO at Venn Innovation, which is active in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. He explains that in Canada, all the TECNA groups are not-for-profit, and generally have a higher level of government funding than their U.S. counterparts.
