VIRTUAL – Lunchtime Topic with Jen Bonnett: An Overview of the Savannah Logistics Technology Corridor
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDTFREE
Savannah is one of two designated technology corridors in the State of Georgia. Augusta has the Cyber Technology Corridor, and we have the Logistics Technology Corridor. The goal of the corridors is to activate more technology firms and jobs in each region.
Technology firms and jobs are important for a couple of reasons: first, starting salaries in technology firms tend to be at least 10 percent above average Chatham County wages, even for less technical roles like customer support; second, technology jobs are skills based, meaning technology skills are more important than a degree.
The Savannah Logistics Technology Corridor (SLTC) Taskforce has been working hard over the past three plus years with the goal of growing Savannah into a globally recognized location for logistics innovation. One of our biggest wins to date was obtaining $400,000 in state funding plus $100,000 of local matching funds for a series of studies on how to achieve this mission. The first of these studies was completed this spring.
Come learn about the study’s findings and how you can be a part of the SLTC mission.
