If you are in the business of technology and you live anywhere near the upstate of South Carolina, the best annual showcase of that local technology is clearly InnoVenture. The show's focuses on events that bring tech companies together in a loose networking environment in hopes of making something happen.
The event draws organizations of all sizes, many of which are looking for funding or partners. Some of them even bring along samples of the cool stuff they are working on.
Last year, after the show, I interviewed the InnoVenture's idea man, John Warner, and asked him how it went. His comments and observations of InnoVenture 2005 are the subject of this podcast.
