UPDATE from University Tech Park | March 2017

NEXT THURS., March 9 at UTP:  Connected Car Chicago Meetup featuring Mike Stacey  

The automotive industry is a hotbed of new ideas with cars that talk to each other and the roadways, drive themselves, are powered by electricity and allow several drivers to share one vehicle. The rethinking of the automobile offers a lot of opportunity for innovators. But how can startups get their best concepts in front of key industry decision-makers?
Mike Stacey 

UTP's own Mike Stacey, founder and CEO of resident company   VG SmartGlass, will be sharing his experiences as a startup in creating relationships with automotive OEMs .   
Mike's presentation is hosted by the Meetup group  Connected Car Chicago,  a group of tech and car enthusiasts who act as a virtual think tank on the future of transportation, the connected car and other mobility issues. 

This free event is next Thursday, March 9, from 6 to 8 PM in UTP's Technology Business Center Atrium.
