The panel will be held on Zoom at noon July 15. Joining Herrmann are Youngstown Business Incubator CEO Barb Ewing, Brite Energy Innovators President and CEO Rick Stockburger and Vern Richberg, regional director of the Minority Business Assistance Center.

Registration for the panel is available HERE.

OhioX was founded by Chris Berry to help companies across the state develop connections and gain an understanding of what’s happening in the technology industry in Ohio.

“By creating this new awareness of what companies are out there, what ideas are out there, we can increase opportunity and hopefully move Ohio forward through opportunity and innovation,” he said in a statement. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had conversations with people in Cincinnati, Dayton, or Columbus and I’ll mention something in Cleveland and they didn’t know that was going on.”

The Tech Tour started with a panel discussion about Cleveland on July 8. Upcoming events, held every Wednesday, will feature Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Akron/Canton, Toledo, Portsmouth, Ashland and Dublin.
