Glendale, CA – The City of Glendale is proud to announce the schedule of events for the 2nd Annual Glendale Tech Week. Kicking off on Monday, October 9th with a City sponsored summit on Wednesday and Thursday, attendees can look forward to a program packed with talks, panels, site tours, happy hours, and networking events. This year’s theme “A Startup Journey,” will address everything from moving ideas through development, funding, marketing, and more.
