Let's hear your Voice May 22nd

It's an exciting time to be in Louisville, there are a lot of things going on but one of our big questions here at the LDA is what more is needed in tech and entrepreneurship – the focus of LDA. It is spring, it's time for change, it's time to make things happen, it's time to grow – so come join LDA as we discuss what you think it takes to help grow Louisville's entrepreneurial and tech communities.

This is for all you social media mavens, you corporate maybe entrepreneurs, you “I've got a small  gig on the side” or you I'm growing a business folks.  You see  the people in all these groups are related and how fast and large any one of our areas grows helps drive the others.

So come listen as Jason Falls asks our local helpers and our audience what needs to take place over the next year or so to continue moving Louisville forward. Our guests include Ted Smith, Chief, Economic Growth and Innovation at Louisville Metro Government; Tendai Charasika, Long time Business Supporter and Newly appointed Executive Director at Enterprise Corp and some of the leadership of other service groups around town – like LDA and Forge.

Come get your questions answered and let your voice be heard at this event . This coming Wednesday, May 22nd, at the iHub in Louisville.

Tell us what you want – so we can help give it to you! To sign up – go to: sign up

Free 3D Printing @ the Main Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library Mar. 9th

A key chain with your dog’s name on it, a personalized iPhone cover, a strange little piece of jewelry. Now you can use 3D printing to make and customize a long list of fun and useful objects!

At this workshop, computers with kid simple software will be set up, there will be 3D trained folks roaming around and the machines will be printing morning through – well, late afternoon. And you can be amongst the first of your friends to have printed out your own “thing” on a 3D printer!

Join LDA and the wonderful folks at the LFPL to print out your own 3D masterpiece. FOR FREE. For Men and women and children of all ages!!

 Sign up here!

Come even if you haven’t registered — but registering guarantees you a pre-printed 3d toy – we will not tell you what it is, but a hint is that it is Kentucky’s State Bird.

Time: 10-4

Date: March 9th

Location: Louisville Free Public Library

301 York Street, Louisville KY 40203
