Casey Technology Expo
This year the City of Casey held a technology expo to showcase some of our local technology businesses. It also included presentations from four businesses on how they got through the start-up phase and concluded with a shark tank pitch event for entrepreneurs aged up to 25.
As part of this event we included a demonstration of 3D printing. We were also pleased to see our friends from Zain Digital also there and providing one of the entrepreneur pitches.
Start-Up Success Lessons
We had the privilege of four companies sharing their story of how they got to a successful operating position. There were two start-ups and two transitions. I presented one of the stories. As an engineer, I discovered I had not learned enough about business to be able to run an engineering business that designed products for other people. I had the technical skills but not the business skills.
Young Entrepreneur Shark Tank
As part of the event, three sets of young entrepreneurs pitched as business proposition in a shark tank setting. I was one of the sharks. The winners were an architectural service L8 providing superior 3D renderings of new housing developments.
We look forward to next year’s event.
