“Georgia has become a hotbed for startups and emerging technology companies, and without a doubt, co-work spaces like Digital Ignition play a critical role in this innovation,” said Senator Perdue. “As a business guy, I know about the challenges of growing a company and keeping it competitive. I’m proud of the work Digital Ignition and the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber are doing to support Georgia entrepreneurs as they turn groundbreaking ideas into a reality.”

“Last year, we engaged the local technology executives in Forsyth County to come together and meet on a bi-monthly basis to discuss ideas and items that are important to the tech community,” said Scott Evans, Senior Technology Project Manager for the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce. “The group, branded Forsyth Tech Execs, has grown from the original 14 to over 50 tech executives meeting on a regular basis. We are flattered that Senator Perdue has agreed to sit down with us and participate in our conversation. It speaks volumes that he’d take time from his busy schedule to sit down and hear directly from technology executives the ideas, issues and challenges circulating our industry. We are flattered, and it is our pleasure to welcome him here.”

“Digital Ignition is a business launching pad for companies and entrepreneurs focused on innovation, partnerships and growth,” said Joanne Sanders, General Manager of Digital Ignition and President of EWISE Communications. “As the official incubator for Forsyth County, we work with our members, the tech community, and area businesses to bring cutting-edge Blockchain, AI, IoT and other product and service innovations to the U.S. market. We are honored to have a successful executive like Senator David Perdue foster dialogue and show his continued support for innovation in Georgia and beyond.”
