Part of the iHive Incubator Posts Category.
San Diego, California is a fine and strong city. The people here want this city and region to remain a place of prosperity and growth. We in the Information Technology industry work hard with companies and government to achieve and then surpass worthwhile mutual beneficial goals. Today I was part of the launch of iHive, one San Diego Technology Incubator. I sit on the Advisor Board of iHive. Today is also the start of San Diego Startup Week and it kicked-off at iHive headquarters with a strong leadership lineup. Darin Andersen, Chairman & Founder of CyberTech and iHive, started the event with an audience of about 60 or m0re political leaders, corporate leaders, and entrepreneurs gathered in the courtyard area of iHive. Darin then introduced a round of speakers including these San Diego elected officials:
Other industry speakers followed including, F Christian Byrnes, Gartner Managing Vice President IT Risk and Security. At the break, I had a few minutes to speak to Christian about his security comments regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) and how my company’s Newbound Network software fits in with the security model of IoT. All the speakers validated the premise that we are putting San Diego on the map on par with San Francisco and Silicon Valley as one more premier technology region. All the speakers today reinforced that vision and pledged along with the rest of the attendees to work hard to continue. There are a number of Technology Incubators in the San Diego region. iHive will play a strong role in delivering the promise of the Internet of Things to San Diego. I’m proud to be involved with iHive at the start as all in iHive move forward. Stay tuned!
