According to Inc. 5000, which ranks the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States, eight of the top ten companies in the tri-state area are technology firms that are experiencing astronomical year-on-year growth. The emergence of these firms means the technology industry must speak with a unified voice to support a policy agenda in Washington and State Capitols that will support growth and job creation. The ubiquitous nature of technology also means transformation of how government functions in service to its constituents. Join us for what promises to be a unique event.
