Jaffus Hardrick, President, Florida Memorial University
Marcell Haywood, CEO, Encompass

The town hall was presented in partnership with the Future of Tech Commission, ExcelinEd, and the Florida Chamber of Commerce. The Commission is a private, independent and bipartisan working group developed in response to discussions with the White House and the Federal Communications Commission to recommend a comprehensive tech policy agenda for the nation.
