Although we’re based in Seattle, New Tech Northwest takes its networking/educational opportunities on the road to the Eastside and Portland monthly and Tacoma quarterly. If you’ve never visited one of our events in these locations, you might want to check out Tacoma next week. (And check out our Tacoma Awesomeness page full of fun Tacoma hidden gems like our Seattle/Eastside Awesomeness page.)
On Wednesday, October 17 beginning at 5:30 pm, you’ll have an opportunity to meet entrepreneurs, startup members and founders and more established company representatives in Tacoma’s Court House Square (the historic post office building). This month, the agenda is particularly diverse — you’ll get a chance to hear from the following:
Surge South Tacoma is just one of the many businesses, and 3rd co-working space, the Moreno family has sponsored to help advance Tacoma as one of Washington’s best communities. Surge Tacoma has been in the news recently as the lead consortium member awarded the Old City Hall redevelopment project by the City of Tacoma. The iconic, 125-year old Italianate style building with a particularly interesting clock tower will become a multi-use destination with restaurants, micro apartments and co-working space.
Windtalker Innovations will be showing off GigaNet; device networking that will extend existing coverage and provide off-grid connectivity. You’ll discover how they’re using existing technologies in unconventional ways to provide 3D safety and data communications around the globe. Overall they’re providing precise positioning and safety without the need for costly satellites and extensive infrastructure laydown like 5G.
Startup Astro Proxima makes apps for multilingual users. Founder Joseph Casebeer will introduce Jargonaut, an app with a glossary of mathematics, physics, art and music terms in Japanese, English and French. If you’re an artist or scientist and want to talk about physics or techniques in secondary languages, this app is for you.
If you’re a veteran, you’re in luck – because Nate Amidon will be in the house. The president of Form100 Consulting will talk about how Form100 leverages the experience of military veterans to provide exceptional project management consulting skills to its clients. Nate continues his service as an active C-17 pilot in the Air Force Reserve 131th Airlift Squadron.
