365 Connect, a leader in the multifamily housing industry, announced its involvement in the first ever Tech Cocktail Social in New Orleans. The company is one of the sponsors for the local startup celebration and networking event taking place on October 1st at Ohm Lounge from 6:30 to 9:00 PM.
“We are excited to have 365 Connect as a sponsor for the Tech Cocktail Social Event to be held in New Orleans,” said Julia Ballard, SBN’s Editor-In-Chief. “New Orleans has consistently been named as one of the top cities for startups, and having Tech Cocktail host this event in our city is another major achievement for our entrepreneurial community. 365 Connect is not only one of our homegrown technology companies, but a local success story and advocate of the startup community. We have watched 365 Connect grow into a national company that has brought home 14 technology awards to date. Their sponsorship of this event demonstrates their continuing commitment to our city and its technology community.”
365 Connect President and CEO Kerry W. Kirby said, “365 Connect is proud to sponsor this landmark event taking place in our hometown of New Orleans. As we were once a startup trying to find our way in the market, we know how critical it is to gain exposure, support and advice to grow those early stage ideas. Since our founding 10-years ago, we have watched New Orleans embrace and foster a robust startup community that is now nationally recognized. Tech Cocktail coming to New Orleans sends a message across the country that the Silicon Bayou is alive and well, and open for business. We want the local startup community to know that we stand ready to support them, as they are a vital part of the new economy that is pushing our city into the national spotlight.”
Over the last few weeks, local startups have been encouraged to apply for a chance to win tickets and part of their expenses paid to Tech Cocktail Celebrate, the national startup competition and conference in Las Vegas at the end of October. At the New Orleans Social, a member of the Tech Cocktail team will Skype in to announce the winners (you must be present to win!).
“As a proud New Orleans-based company, 365 Connect is honored to be part of this wonderful event and contribute to the local startup community,” added Kirby. “Known as the Silicon Bayou, Louisiana is rapidly becoming a place where entrepreneurs, technology developers, innovators, and venture capitalists are making great strides in modern technology. 365 Connect will continue to foster new technology into the marketplace by supporting our entrepreneurial community.”
