What’s Tech248?

Posted by – Stephanie Carroll, Manager of Business Development & Community Relations

In 2014, Oakland County launched an initiative called “Tech248.”  Since then, there have been quarterly meet-ups that focus on networking and collaboration opportunities for the local tech industry.  The City of Auburn Hills is excited and proud to be a part of this economic initiative.

Yesterday, Tech248 held a summit in Auburn Hills at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum that focused mainly on talent development and recruitment.  The room was filled with experts in the tech community eager to find ways to help address the talent shortage in their industry.


The featured speaker was Jennifer Llewellyn, Manager of Workforce Development for Oakland County.   Jennifer discussed how Workforce Development can partner with the IT industry to assist in addressing the talent shortage that is being experienced and also announced that Workforce Development now has a dedicated resource that can help the industry to develop strategies for IT talent recruitment.
