Morning Buzz

7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Hilton Garden Inn
1307 East Market Street, Akron

The Morning Buzz, sponsored by SummaCare, Roetzel and Spectrum Reach, is a monthly speaker breakfast series which aims to connect small and medium size businesses by facilitating the exchange of ideas and strategies for business growth and success. 
Join us to hear Ian Schwarber, Chief Strategy Officer, DriveIT.  

DriveIT is an Akron-based startup launching its inaugural location in Spring 2018 in Akron, Ohio.  This innovative company will redefine the Information Technology skills training landscape.  The most effective training requires hands-on immersion, social interaction with mentors and peers, and verification of competency. In contrast to other platforms and services which are missing one or more of these features, DriveIT will be offering “Gyms for the Brain,” meant to improve the fitness of the IT workforce on a year-round basis, for less than the cost of sending an employee to a conference, or providing traditional consultant-based custom IT training

In March 2016, Schwarber co-founded The EX[L] Center for Entrepreneurship and Civic Engagement at The University of Akron (OH), named to “Top 50 Innovation Centers in US” by President Obama on June 17, 2016.  Schwarber founded his own innovation consulting practice, ALTITUDE Strategy, advised a number of successful startups, founded non-profit organizations and held leadership roles in various political campaigns, grassroots movements and community projects.
