National Harbor, MD -Last week, the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) hosted a Technology Executives Roundtable sponsored by the Peterson Companies at their impressive National Harbor headquarters along the Potomac River waterfront. The Roundtable discussion allowed for top technology leaders to discuss how the EDC, Prince George's County Tech Council, and regional firms can work together to share trends and create more tech opportunities in Prince George's County. EDC President & CEO Jim Coleman likened this Roundtable to the building of a community to rival Silicon Valley.
"The Roundtable is just the start of a powerful relationship with the Prince George's County Tech Council and the technology community," said Coleman. "Prince George's County is blessed to have the talent and the ability to start up our own ecosystem to support these great companies in the technology sector. Listening and learning from the top bosses in the industry gives me confidence that within the next three years, we will have created thousands of high-wage, competitive jobs in a nurturing technology community and become a global leader."
Participants in last week's Roundtable seized the opportunity to share their expertise on trends in technology, as well as voice their strong support for engaging in open, candid and results-driven dialogue with their colleagues.
"The time is now," said Alfred G. Edwards, President & CEO of Exceed Corporation. "The County couldn't be better positioned to have top thought leaders join forces to expand and strengthen the technology sector."
The Roundtable also has the support of the Prince George's County Tech Council.
"The EDC's 'Technology Executives Roundtable' is the first step in organizing our tech community in Prince George's County," said Tony Marshall, President of the Prince George's County Tech Council. "The Prince George's County Tech Council welcomes the partnership and collaboration with PGCEDC on their Technology Executives Roundtable initiative."
The Roundtable will meet monthly to share the latest trends in the technology sector, discuss opportunities to bolster the technology ecosystem, and develop strategies to create a culture of innovation in Prince George's County in collaboration with the Prince George's County Tech Council. The Roundtable also plans to participate in job fairs and meet-ups while fostering a relationship with the Tech Council to make the County a place that tech companies come and thrive.
