Dear Members and Friends of the World Trade Center:
 
Alaska is home to a small, but growing, tech community. There are a cadre of entrepreneurs who are creating cutting edge technologies here in the 49th state and gaining recognition and customers in the Lower 48 and around the world. The potential opportunities for this sector to flourish here are very real, but not always discussed enough in conversations about growing and diversifying the state's economy. 
 
We've launched the Tech Forward Alaska Luncheon to highlight Alaska's tech sector and to shine a spotlight on the entrepreneurs who are helping to put Alaska on the map for innovative technologies and successful e-commerce business endeavors.
 
This year's luncheon features a keynote presentation by Ragu Bhargava, a former Alaskan and UAA graduate (BBA Accounting '89) who turned his ideas into a global enterprise headquartered today in the heart of Silicon Valley. 
 
In addition to Bhargava's presentation, the luncheon will also feature presentations by four successful Alaskan tech entrepreneurs in the areas of software development, e-commerce, high tech manufacturing, and tech finance. 
 
Don't miss this once-a-year event focused on technology and innovation in Alaska! Reserve your seat today! Also, take advantage of the "early-bird" savings when you buy a table and invite your colleagues and customers.
 
I look forward to seeing you on December 6th!
 
With best regards,
Greg Wolf
Executive Director
