Celebrating a Year of Tech Innovation at Carnevale 2017
By Matt Czach, Senior Lead Industrial Designer
Tekna is committed to supporting Michigan’s creative technology community. Recently, Dan Altenritter and I were fortunate enough to attend Carnevale’s 2017 Gala in Grand Rapids, where we rubbed shoulders with some of southwest Michigan’s brightest tech minds. Along with David Johnson from our embedded software partner, DornerWorks, we indulged in Marti Gras-themed fare, including French wines, Abita beers, and charcuterie. We enjoyed both catching up with old friends (talking shop with Mercy Health Innovation) and meeting some new ones (Aesthetic Interactive, an augmented reality design and development firm). All in all, it was a fantastic way to spend an evening, topped off with a little tarot card reading. Thanks for throwing a great party Mike—we look forward to next year!
