TRAVERSE CITY – TCNewTech, The Traverse Area Chamber of Commerce, and Startology are hosting a free homecoming event for “Boomerangs,” people who grew up or summered in Traverse City, moved away to pursue education or other goals, and are now considering moving home and continuing their careers.
The goal is to connect returning professionals with some of Traverse City’s top tech, professional service, and high-growth companies, as well as venture capitalists and angel investors interested in financing scalable or innovative business ideas.
“Traverse City has more to offer than outstanding restaurants and beaches—it’s quickly becoming the place to launch and grow startups and build careers. With people coming home for Thanksgiving, we thought this is a perfect time to introduce them to our organizations, the phenomenal companies growing here, and some of the resources Traverse City has to offer,” says TCNewTech’s Russell Schindler.
The hosts are particularly eager to connect with people in tech, engineering, professional services, project management, sales, as well as all manner of entrepreneurs involved in scalable ventures. “The companies in our portfolio will all be hiring in the coming months, from CTO and programming positions, to engineers, to experienced sales directors. Now is the time for talented professionals to consider coming home,” says Megan Crandall of Boomerang Catapult, a venture capital firm that invests in Traverse City businesses.
The event will be held at The Workshop Brewing Company, 221 Garland St, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm, Wednesday, November 22.
Pre-registration at Eventbrite.com will be rewarded with a free beverage ticket and appetizers. (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tcnewtech-boomerang-homecoming-tickets-39340783342?aff=ehomecard)
