Access to the Internet, cyber security, and all forms of digital information are incredible drivers of the economy that aren't just nice options any more. They are necessities.
Addressing this topic, co-founder and CEO of Troy Ventures and SecureNetMD Jack Berberian will speak at the League of Women Voters of Sussex County's public Land Use Forum Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the County Council Chambers.
Joining Berberian on the topic of: "Economic Development in Sussex: What and When?" will be Bill Pfaff, Sussex County economic development director; Ken Bounds, deputy secretary of agriculture; and Scott Thomas, executive director of the Southern Delaware Tourism office.
Having everyone connected is going to be one of the keys to the future in Delaware, said Berberian. He will speak on technology and its importance to economic growth in Sussex County as well as some of the achievements and problems in establishing reliable connectivity for everyone.
For years Berberian has served on Sussex County working groups to help solve connection problems, such as increasing fiber optic technology in the county. "Connectivity is going to bring companies and jobs to our area. It's really doing good things," said Berberian.
