Tap into new perspectives


What is TechTalk?

TechTalk is an event designed to bring together entrepreneurs, technologists, business people and investors for networking -- and more. Members are interested in adding more value to each month’s event while supporting and growing North Iowa’s creative class, including tech employees and employers.

TechTalk creates a space for sparking new ideas and conversations between innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, educators, technologists, community members, and community partners. TechTalk’s goal is to engage, encourage, and elevate technology in North Iowa by creating the opportunity for meaningful interactions.

When is TechTalk?

TechTalk currently holds 9 events per year in Mason City and Clear Lake, with 2 additional “on the road” events in neighboring North Iowa communities. Each month features a discussion topic, Q&A panel, or presentation hosted by the featured sponsor.
