With a focus on providing Access, Education, and driving Commerce, the Urban Tech Fair, a 30 day interactive community based cloud and ground experience, brings urban dwellers ages 12-55 together around underserved communities to demonstrate what is possible through technology and collaboration by leveraging local resources, talent, and innovation, aka the Silicon Valleys that exist in our OWN backyards.

 

ABOUT URBAN TECH FAIR

The Urban Tech Fair is the brainchild of Software Developer, Publisher, and Blogger Jim Neusom, more commonly known as the Digital Drummer. UTF merges his community and small business advocacy, wealth of connections, and technology experience into purpose and outcome driven activity. Marketing Strategist Jacqueline Taylor-Adams brings definition, clarity, and strategy to the vision as Chairperson and CMO. Collaboration with national technology associations, business organizations, and local community groups allows the Urban Tech Fair to effectively promote Access, Education, and drive Commerce via these urban tech fairs.
