How Can Startups Battle the “Tech 15”?

One of the more common perks of working in the tech industry is the free food.

With plenty of pizza and beer to go around, local innovators braved the weather to hear three different presentations, chime in with feedback, and network with like-minded individuals. First up was Amanda Delcore, who used open-source hardware licensing to provide the materials and designs for a robust and customizable headlamp, which is especially important in developing countries without common access to electricity. Red Spark’s very own Steve Dorazio took the stage next to present his Android App, Draft Tracker… Read More
