This month, we will explore in depth the IT industry in the region, its contributions to the regional economy, and the efforts being made to elevate Cincinnati as a top choice for businesses. Where there is IT leadership and talent, there is innovation. That’s what companies and organizations in Cincinnati USA find to be especially true. And as a result of their significant investment to develop top IT talent in our region, game-changing innovations and opportunities are created on an ongoing basis. Cincinnati USA profits from a robust and diverse IT cluster that includes FORTUNE 1000 companies, a strong network of highly-rated academic institutions, a number of global IT service providers, world-class infrastructure, and passionate, engaged IT leadership. Many notable technology and technology-enabled companies were born in Cincinnati USA, including Bluespring, Cincom, ConnXus, Convergys, Paycor and TechSoft Systems.

- Did you know that IT investment by the top 20 companies in Cincinnati exceeds $3 billion annually?

- Did you know that our region's pipeline of IT talent includes over 15,000 IT professionals an another 15,000 IT-related consulting experts?

- Did you know that Cincinnati USA features a number of incubators, accelerators and support organizations (like BDPA!) that provide resources to help start-ups succeed?

- Did you know that the Greater Cincinnati CIO Roundtable provides a professional forum for IT leaders of some of the largest companies in the region to address common concerns and opportunities?

This is the type of information that will be shared by our two special guests this month: Tammy Riddle is Director of Development for IT, Insurance, and Finance at the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Cincinnati. She will be joined by Brian Berning, President of The Circuit, the information Technology association for the Greater Cincinnati tri-state region.

Tammy is a University of Cincinnati alumnus and served as the Economic Development Director for the city of Sharonville before joining the Cincinnati USA Partnership as part of a team tasked with filling the IT talent gap in the region.

As President of The Circuit, Brian connects the regional players in the IT industry to provide opportunities for networking, education, access to capital, and advocacy.

Both Tammy and Brian play are key players in the region and have a wealth of knowledge to share.  BDPA is pleased that they will share their expertise and wisdom with attendees of this meetup. Anyone … regardless of race or color … interested in tech is welcome!
