Meet the Team: UK DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRY & TRADE
January 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
ATC is proud to bring “Meet the Team” to the Austin tech community. Tech business leaders will opt into a conversation with peer executives about solutions to challenges that come up within their areas of expertise. The breakout chat session will begin with a brief facilitator welcome, topic review, and attendee introduction then move right into open discussion. We will then reconvene in the plenary meeting room for a wrap up including highlights from facilitators and opportunities to take the first step to connect with attendees across disciplines. Privately sending a “hello”, email address, or LinkedIn link to connect post-event is highly encouraged.
We will host a myriad of businesses in the tech community who are at different stages of growth so keep an eye out for your favorite companies to host our next Meet the Team! Tell us who you want to hear from by emailing Jessica Camarillo.
