High-tech industry to show off for W.Va. lawmakers

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Aspects of West Virginia's growing high-tech economy will be on full display at the Capitol in Charleston.

Monday is Innovation & Entrepreneurship Day, hosted by Industries of the Future-West Virginia and TechConnect West Virginia.

TechConnect executive director Anne Barth says the idea is to put a face on the innovation economy and let policymakers know the industry is growing and creating jobs.

The event includes a panel discussion about how to sustain such innovation.

Among the speakers are Greg Clutter of the Mid-Atlantic Technology and Research Innovation Center and Charlotte Weber of the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing.

More than 80 groups, companies and agencies are attending.
