NLT at DCWeek 2012
New Light Technologies had the wonderful opportunity to be a web sponsor for [http://digitalcapitalweek.org/] Digital Capital Week Festival 2012, more commonly known as DCWEEK 2012. The week-long festival in the nation's capital, which took place Nov. 2 thru Nov. 9, allowed New Light Technologies' CEO, Ghermay Araya, to network with the brightest and most innovative designers, developers, social innovators and entrepreneurs from around the country.
In addition to the wonderful networking opportunity, Ghermay had a chance to attend some of DCWeek's sessions. What resonated with him the most was the message and tone of Mayor Vincent Gray's presentation during the keynote event on Wednesday, Nov.7.
"Mayor Vincent Gray spoke to a crowd of 2,000 about the importance start-up businesses, especially those in the tech-sector, play in the DC area. His dedication to making DC the number one technology start-up hub in the country was evident throughout his entire keynote," said Ghermay Araya, CEO of New Light Technologies.
"Mayor Gray noted the DC tech-sector incentives bill that will encourage more [tech-sector] start-ups to move to the district. This bill illustrates that the government is eager to energize and provide incentives to businesses looking to move to the district. I believe it's a great start."
Thanks DCWEEK 2012 for putting on such a great event. NLT is looking forward to next year!
