About the ITEN WIRED Team

Join the “Geeks on the Beach”

along the “Cyber Coast”

THE GEEKS ON (PENSACOLA) BEACH

Whether you’re an executive, entrepreneur, technology professional, student, or just looking for insights on current and emerging trends in IT, cybersecurity and entrepreneurship, the ITEN WIRED Summit welcomes you.

ITEN (Innovation Technology Entrepreneur Network) Wired Summit, which was founded in 2008 by the greater Pensacola, Florida Area Chamber of Commerce, has fast grown from a regional event to attracting attendees from across the U.S. who want to connect and collaborate on innovation, technology and entrepreneurship topics.

 

GROWING THE CYBER COAST

In 2012, as the Gulf Coast’s growing tech scene grew, ITEN WIRED expanded to nearby Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Escambia and Baldwin counties, leading many to think ITEN WIRED’s name originated from these interstate (I-10) locations.

Today, the event is hosted by IT Gulf Coast and Florida West Economic Development Alliance to highlight the Pensacola, Florida area’s growing and diverse tech and entrepreneurial industries, as well as its ties to the national scene. The annual summit provides networking and learning opportunities for executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to foster local economic development efforts surrounding innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.

ITEN WIRED proceeds are donated to IT Gulf Coast for re-investment in local STEM initiatives, including an endowment with the University of West Florida’s College of Science & Engineering.

The ITEN WIRED planning team is composed of volunteers from IT Gulf Coast, Florida West Economic Development Alliance, and other members of our local IT, tech and entrepreneurial community.
