TECHTalk Highlights

Top Moments from TECHTalks in Rochester, NY

TECHTalks was one for the record books! Joined by over 75 of Rochester, NY’s technology enthusiasts and business leaders, we explored the latest emerging technologies and innovative trends that are predicted to shape the future of our businesses and industries for years to come.  

We did this through a series of short, but powerful, “talks” from some of the region’s leading innovative thinkers in technology.  

From learning how to break common barriers to innovation, to the growing importance of valuing the user experience, TECHTalks was a great success that brought together the Rochester tech community for an inspirational morning of conversation surrounding innovation and emerging technologies. 

Some of our top moments…
