A Note from the Board

It's that time of year when we all pause and take time to give thanks. We'd like to take this opportunity to tell you how grateful we are for you. Each month as we focus on a pertinent technology trend or topic, gather to connect and network, we leave inspired by those in our community. Each attendee, sponsor and guest adds to the vibrant and rich conversation and together we grow. So thank you for being part of the Tech Forum community. We value your participation and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Annual Holiday Extravaganza.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Rick Sommer

The Delaware Technology Park (DTP) is a recognized leading East Coast non-profit research park, providing development-stage life science, information technology, advanced materials and renewable energy companies with access to the resources and connections needed to drive and accelerate their economic success.

DTP welcomed its first company in 1992. Since its inception, DTP has housed more than 75 companies, including 25 companies that have matured and graduated from the Park. There has been $300 million invested in the Park and an additional $300 million given to DTP organizations through research grants. DTP has helped create more than 16,000 new jobs in the community.

The tremendous success of DTP is possible because of its strategic alignment with the State, the University of Delaware, and the private sector, and it is successfully using this partnership model that has won DTP national recognition. In 2005, the Association of University Research Parks (AURP) recognized DTP as the Outstanding Research/Science Park of the Year. Additionally, the U.S. Council on Competitiveness recognized DTP as a model research park for its regional economic development initiatives across the U.S. and Mexico.
