Why Attend:   Tri-State TechVoice Chapter EventAccording 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 (also falling within the top 150 companies nationwide) are technology firms that are experiencing astronomical year-on-year growth. The emergence of these tech firms necessitates a policy agenda at the state and federal level 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 as Newark Mayor Cory Booker shares his vision for technology policy and Robert Feldstein offers remarks on the hot issue of high-skilled immigration reform.
