Technolink Mission Collage


about



Founded in 1995 by Ssusan Forte O’Neill and Billy Robbins, Technolink Association began as a futurist conference to answer a need for a “Silicon Valley cluster” in Southern California with the core mission to expand economic development. Today, members of Technolink Association benefit from a club-like atmosphere that encourages the sharing of ideas and cutting-edge innovations among executives through themed forums and round table discussions.

Technolink Association is a coalition of national and international leaders from the fields of aerospace, defense, energy, finance, legal, life sciences, innovation, public safety and policy that provides a bridge between public and private sectors to develop a virtual high technology corridor in Southern California.





Mission



Our mission as a trade association is to serve as a resource center for emerging and start-up companies and to enhance development of innovation through public and private partnerships. The Association's aim is to link the business community with the collective technological resources of organizations and institutions such as the California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the University of California, Los Angeles, University of California, Irvine, California State University, Long Beach and Saddleback College.

Throughout the years, the Technolink Association has proudly created “linkages” for many start-up companies to enhance economic development throughout Southern California. It continues to support a plurality of high technology clusters by serving as a resource base for start-up companies conceived from the universities and research institutions in the area. The Technolink Association is a premier example of the positive aspects of government and industry partnerships.
