We’re excited to announce that 14 local Bloomington companies have been selected to be featured at Thursday’s Tech Cocktail Bloomington event. The Tech Cocktail Startup Mixer will serve as the opening event for this year’s Combine. In addition to networking with fellow Combine attendees and speakers, it’s a great opportunity to get the inside track on some great startups emerging from Bloomington, Indianapolis and beyond.
Bloomington Tech Cocktail “ambassador” Betsy Trotzke is leading the startup mixer once again and it is sure to be a fantastic event. Trotzke provided a rundown of the companies selected to demo – and Tech Cocktail will do a more complete write up on each of the startups.
