FoodLogiQ CEO Dean Wiltse took the main stage last week at the CED Tech Venture Conference, an event that brings together over 800 tech innovators, entrepreneurs and investors from across the country to present new ideas and discuss the state of the industry. Now in its 33rd year, this annual event is the country’s longest running entrepreneurial conference and was held on September 19-20, 2017 at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Wiltse presented on the mainstage last year and was invited back to present again to update investors and our tech industry peers on our company’s advancements and milestones. Spirits were high as we had just announced that FoodLogiQ had secured Renewal Funds as a lead investor to help fuel our growth.
