High Tech—Southern Oregon’s Edge
Did you know that Medford MSA ranked Number 1 in the nation for the highest concentration of high tech firms in the country?(*ranked by the 2013 Milken Institute Best Performing Small Cities report)
Were you aware that the Medford MSA ranked Number 12 in High Tech GDP growth (2007-2012) out of 179 similarly sized communities in the nation?
This year’s Business Conference features guest presenter, Minoli Ratnatunga, economist and co-author of the Milken Institute’s annual “Best Performing Cities” report. The Milken Institute is among the top “think tanks” in the country that conducts in-depth research, hosts conferences, and publishes strategic studies. Medford is honored to be among the very first to have the 2014 report unveiled.
Joining Minoli will be Dr. Tim Duy, adjunct professor of economics at the University of Oregon and director of the Oregon Economic Forum. Dr. Duy is also author of the quarterly Regional Economic Index which he authors on behalf of KeyBank, the Business Conference’s Presenting Sponsor. Dr. Duy will provide solid data behind Oregon’s economic rebound in 2014—and beyond.
We have brought together yet another stellar panel of local companies—high tech firms that are enjoying tremendous growth and success--Coding Zeal, an app developer and designer of web and mobile products; Carestream, a worldwide provider of medical and dental imaging systems and IT solutions; and Linx Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of wireless products. These three firms represent just a sampling of the variety of high tech firms spread throughout the Rogue Valley.
