Troy Innovation Garage grand opening

The Troy Innovation Garage is celebrating its grand opening March 6-10 with a series of events.

Among those events is a panel discussion Wednesday -- "Conversations on Innovation":

'Conversations on Innovation' is a discussion with executive level leaders, entrepreneurs, and creators where we ask them to talk about how innovation played a role in their organizational and personal success. Our panelists come from a variety of sectors, including video game development, cider making, public art and community empowerment and real estate development.

The panelists are Karthik Bala of Velan Ventures (and founder of Vicarious Visions), Breathing Lights project director Judie Gilmore, David Buicko of the Galesi Group (developers of Mohawk Harbor), and Alejandro del Peral of Nine Pin Cider Works.

The event starts at 6 pm. It's $30 -- free for Troy Innovation Garage members.

Other events during the week include a "Cowork for the Day" and a happy hour reception. See that first link above for details.

Troy Innovation Garage? It's a new co-working space "aimed at the Capital Region's creative entrepreneurs" on Fourth Street in downtown Troy. The project is backed by Tom Nardacci, the founder of local PR and marketing firm Gramercy Communications, which also has offices in the building.

Here's a photo tour from when it first opened last fall.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

... This will make Albany into a place that many of us don't want to live in and came here to get away from: Big buildings, heavy traffic, congestion, noise, and parking shortages are really not what we or what people seeking to raise families and considering moving to our area want. Building big and tall will change Albany from a family friendly city to a metropolitan city and only increase the gap between the have's and have not's. ...
