SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Feb. 10, 2019 - PRLog -- TechEdge, the Capital Region's premier event focused on technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship will see tremendous growth as a result of the partnership. Foreman states specific interests in partnering with the Journal. "The Journal is the largest platform for business in Sacramento and this partnership is something I couldn't have dreamed of. I grew up in Sacramento and am very passionate about cultivating a culture of entrepreneurship and technology in the Capital Region. This partnership allows us to take the conversation on disruptive technology and innovation and turn it to action in the Capital Region. When I am in the Sacramento area doing business, I am meeting with executives from healthcare, fitness, government, universities, finance, and other sectors but the topic is always technology."

This partnership is key to bolstering the TechEdge speaker lineup, support, and attendance, and building momentum for coming years. The partners are working and planning creatively and thoughtfully to ensure the program's long-term success and growth. They are exploring ways to attract companies and individuals beyond the general business audience. The 2019 program will include an impactful and well-known keynote speaker (to be announces in the near future), several panel discussions with industry-specific experts, and offer invaluable networking and talent recruitment opportunities. The focus of this conference is accelerating innovation, integrating cutting-edge technology across sectors and creating a platform for talent within the technology space.

Worldbridge Partners managing partner Dave Sanders will chair TechEdge, and notes, "I'm very excited to see TechEdge taken up a notch. Looking forward to some dynamic keynote speakers and a refreshed platform to showcase Sacramento's growing presence in the technology space."

Foreman adds, "TechEdge allows us to put everyone under one roof for a day to empower entrepreneurs, show the investment community what Sacramento has to offer and be a recruiting tool for companies that are looking to find talent in tech. My goal is to take the resources and partnerships I have from around the country to put the spotlight on the capital of California."

Business Journal publisher David Lichtman adds, "With George and Dave's extensive knowledge nationally and locally in the technology world, and the opportunity for exponential tech company growth in the future of Sacramento, we are poised to bring a world-class program to the region."
