Tech Forum December Update

A Note form the Board

With 2017 coming to a close, we look back on a great year of connecting in the Delaware tech community. We have a full calendar of events planned in 2018. We will tap the knowledge and insight of local tech experts, as well as, several networking events to help build connection within the community.

We enjoyed another successful holiday party last Wednesday at the newly renovated University and Whist Club. Check out the photos from the event!

Mark your calendars for January 17 for our 2018 Emerging Technologies event, Jim Lee of StratFi, will be talking about the future of cities. Scroll down to learn more and register.


We trust you had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends and we wish you all the very best for a happy and prosperous new year

Our Next Event



The future of cities.

This January, professional futurist Jim Lee of StratFI shares his insights on "what happens next?"

Cities are becoming important centers of innovation. Technologies such as autonomous vehicles, the internet of things, blockchain, and green technologies are going to make our built environments radically smarter, flexible, efficient, and liveable. How will cities evolve and change over the next fifty years?  We'll also discuss how can Delaware can thrive during the coming urban renaissance.


 When:  Wednesday, January 17, 2017
 Time:  5:30 - 7:30 PM
 Where:  Delaware Biotechnology Institute
 15 Innovation Way
 Newark, DE 19711



Sponsor Spotlight


The Delaware Technology Park (DTP) is a recognized leading East Coast non-profit research park, providing development-stage life science, information technology, advanced materials and renewable energy companies with access to the resources and connections needed to drive and accelerate their economic success.

DTP welcomed its first company in 1992. Since its inception, DTP has housed more than 75 companies, including 25 companies that have matured and graduated from the Park. There has been $300 million invested in the Park and an additional $300 million given to DTP organizations through research grants. DTP has helped create more than 16,000 new jobs in the community.

The tremendous success of DTP is possible because of its strategic alignment with the State, the University of Delaware, and the private sector, and it is successfully using this partnership model that has won DTP national recognition. In 2005, the Association of University Research Parks (AURP) recognized DTP as the Outstanding Research/Science Park of the Year. Additionally, the U.S. Council on Competitiveness recognized DTP as a model research park for its regional economic development initiatives across the U.S. and Mexico.
