Registration is now open for the fourth annual celebration of regional innovation and entrepreneurship, TechGROWTH Ohio’s Innovation Celebration. This premier event will take place March 29, 2016 from 5:30-7 p.m., in the Ohio University Baker Center Ballroom.

Four years after TechGROWTH Ohio first hosted the Innovation Awards Gala, this year’s event has been updated to create a more engaging opportunity for attendees to meet and network with the region’s key stakeholders in the southeast Ohio entrepreneurial ecosystem, including CEOs and management teams of new high-growth companies; members of the region’s investment community; entrepreneurs and innovators; Ohio University dignitaries; civic leaders; bankers and individuals from the area’s business community.  The networking reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the evening will conclude with a short program highlighting key innovators. 

This year’s Innovation Celebration will focus on success stories from the region and will feature new and exciting startups and entrepreneurs who are the “ones to watch.” 

“This is a great opportunity to connect with established movers-and-shakers and up-and-coming venture creators,” Lynn Gellermann, Executive Director of TechGROWTH Ohio and the Ohio University Center for Entrepreneurship, said. “We have a lot to be celebrating in southeast Ohio.”
