Fort Wayne technology leaders and entrepreneurs will gather at a downtown business Tuesday evening for a “call-out” meeting that could influence policy talk among Indiana lawmakers.
The Indiana Technology & Innovation Association (ITIA) will meet from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Aptera, 113 W. Berry St., according to a Monday media advisory.
The association officially launched in November 2018, representing an industry it says is Indiana’s fastest-growing sector. The association has recruited about 115 technology company members across the state.
“Leaders involved in the Fort Wayne technology scene will meet to discuss ways they can get involved and shape Indiana’s tech policy at the Statehouse,” the advisory said.
The association’s policy priorities include better preparing the workforce for technology jobs, increasing access to venture capital and attracting tech talent to Indiana.
