Nick Birch

Indiana has a lot of the raw ingredients needed to be a major force in tech job creation now and in the future. This past summer, Nick set out on a 3-month national tour with a goal of learning what more than a dozen cities across the United States are doing to push their technical communities to the next level. Nick will share the unique perspective he gained from the tour, highlighting key observations about how Hoosier technical communities compare to those in cities such as Chicago, Kansas City, and Seattle, among others, and discuss what Indiana can do to accelerate growth and remain competitive with other innovative cities.
