The weather was on our side Thursday July 16th, 2015 for the annual Tech meets taste celebration. However, this past Thursday the Tech Garden was celebrating its 10 year anniversary as well. We attended last years Tech Meets Taste, so we were excited to participate this year. This year Gaber set up a table, handed out flyers, tested the trivia knowledge of the guests and gave away Gaber garb. All in all we met a lot of great people.
Not just another networking event.
The event covered the courtyard surrounding the Tech Garden with local business tables and booths. Unlike other “networking” events, the reason this event is special is because it directly supports Syracuse small businesses. We all had an opportunity to present to attendees that knew what to expect. The venture capitalists, Syracuse business professionals, and local enthusiasts in attendance all were there to see the tech companies working hard to be seen, but often overlooked.
Of course, let’s not forget the food.
Local “foodies” from town all came, as they do every year, to see what Syracuse small food business are up to. Food trucks lined Harrison street throughout the event. Wood fired pizza from Toss ‘n’ Fire, and Pat’s delicious grilled cheese with spinach and tomato from PB&J’s Lunchbox were on our menu. Guests were able to try delicious samples from Broadway Café, Hunka Foods, Cathy’s Cookie Kitchen, Good Nature Brewing, and Liehs & Steigerwald just to name a few. Guests picked up tasty samples and then mingled with leaders of local startups.
We were there. As a Tech Garden resident and a company that supports local business whenever possible, of course we were there. Thanks again to everyone at the Tech Garden who helped set up this event and who tirelessly continue to support local community and local small business.
