Featuring Keynote Speaker Jon Hallsten
Technology innovator and thought leader, Jon Hallsten has led the charge to promote technology collaboration in greater Akron. Jon worked with Turning Technologies, a Youngstown incubator-based startup, to help streamline workflow, boost sales and expand the company’s technology footprint. Jon ventured out to start his own business, Hallsten Innovations, with offices in Barberton, OH and Chicago, IL, which provides custom-designed IoT electronic products and engineering services. As Jon likes to say, basing his company in Barberton was his way of bringing a little magic back to the “Magic City.” Today, Jon continues to be featured throughout local media as a change agent for Northeast Ohio.
