The Glendale Economic Development Department has also started a monthly tech meeting called Glendale Tech on Tap. What is tech on tap? A monthly meet-up series where techies and entrepreneurs discuss the latest technological innovations in a social and open environment. This is a group for anyone interested in Glendale-based tech startups found in film, entertainment, media, animation, music, healthcare, finance and other emerging technologies. This group was started because the City wants to build on the region’s burgeoning tech sector. Tech on Tap meets monthly at the Moose Den, 156 S. Brand Blvd. in Glendale and brings in various types of technologies and entrepreneurs who share their experience. This month’s Tech on Tap meeting was on Aug. 17 and featured Vahe Kuzoyan, president of ServiceTitan. Service Titan is a four-year-old company, and is a mobile, cloud-based management platform for home service businesses. ServiceTitan’s platform helps service companies streamline operations, improve customer service, and grow revenue — bringing a fully operational modern technology infrastructure to an industry traditionally under-served by software. These monthly meetings are also sponsored by the Glendale Economic Development Corp. You can join their Meetup Page at meetup.com/tech-on-tap!
