Happy summer! As things begin to open back up, including events, it will be interesting to see which ones will be in-person and which will stay hybrid. I hope to see some of you at an in person or virtual event soon. A bunch of events and application deadlines are coming up, including applications for Women’s Fast Pitch by Stella Labs, which are due June 25.
See our Events section for more.
This week’s podcast reconnects us with the Cox Business team, which has been cooking up a number of new cloud tech tools to help businesses keep a competitive “edge.” They’ve been working with us in the community for more than four years to help grow our ecosystem. Give it a listen!
