WHY STARTUPS ARE MORE VITAL TO THE ECONOMY THAN EVER Presenter: Travis Linderman, Managing Director of Innovation DuPage
Join Travis in a conversation about how startups can assist DuPage County in diversifying the local economy and driving business to service industries, restaurants and stores. Support of startup growth can attract new residents, corporate sponsors, angel investment and national press to the Glen Ellyn area. Existing models show how startup communities have helped even the most economically damaged regions spring back to life with greater vitality and programs that help them grow.
Travis Linderman has served as director for three venture incubators prior to his selection as Managing Director of Innovation DuPage. He founded a startup with Princeton University, secured venture capital backing, scaled rapidly and enjoyed a successful IP acquisition. Travis has spearheaded capital campaigns that have raised over $600 million for technology development.
