Innovations Seekers"I travel all over the world looking for innovative companies; but for TechQuest, I might have not found some of the best right here in my backyard".
- Mark Denissen, Vice President, Worldwide Strategic Marketing, of Texas Instruments
"By hosting the Tektronix and Fluke TechQuest, we were able to meet with 5 extremely innovative companies located right here in the DFW Metroplex that we may have otherwise have missed. TechQuest was also consistent with our company focus on open innovation."
- Doug Dickerson, President, Network Intelligence Business Unit, Tektronix Communications
Innovations Providers"Our company, Inspherion Corporation, participated in the Tektronix/Fluke Techquest program and was one of the few successful innovator companies chosen to move forward for direct discussions with Tektronix. What's great about the Techquest program, is that it provided our company a venue to showcase our innovative technology platform to larger companies, which directly fed into our "Go to market" strategy. Also, the fact that our technology was chosen for further discussions gives instant validation of our innovative technology, as well as enabled us to gain direct access to the decision makers at a major company. The bottomline is, with this program we were able to make optimal use of our marketing resources, reduce our marketing time to our target partners/customers. I would recommend the Techquest program to any company looking to commercialize innovative technology directly to or in partnership with major companies."
-Ramesh Balin, CEO, Inspherion Corporation
"We are very grateful to the Metroplex Technology Business Council for their TechQuest program. As a scientist at a smaller biotechnology firm, there is little hope of ever getting an audience with high-level managers or executives at large companies like Raytheon. TechQuest made that possible for us and completely facilitated the interaction with Raytheon which was intellectually stimulating and productive. Regardless of the ultimate outcome, we probably never would have had the opportunity to present our innovative ideas and data on such a stage without TechQuest bringing together small and large companies."
