New Local Business Series Debuts on the Nine Network September 16
The Domain Tech Report, Hosted by Edward Domain, Focuses on Local Startups and Entrepreneurs
St. Louis, MO - August 26, 2015 - The Domain Tech Report, a new program about startup companies and entrepreneurs, premieres Wednesday, September 16 at 10:30 p.m. on Nine PBS. The weekly series will be repeated the following Sunday at noon beginning September 20.
The Domain Tech Report is created and hosted by Edward Domain, the founder and CEO of Techli.com, an online news site covering technology, businesses and ideas. In each episode, he will talk with entrepreneurs who have recently started tech companies to discover how and why they decided to launch a new business, challenges they’ve overcome and best practices they’ve pioneered.
"The St. Louis region is fast becoming regarded as a hot city for entrepreneurs and startups," said Domain. "Each week we’ll look into the people and companies innovating in the St. Louis region and with it, the way we work, live and play."
Each episode will contain a panel discussion with participants in startups such as GlobalHack, Manifest Digital and Prosper Women Entrepreneurs; a Why I Became an Entrepreneur segment; a site visit to locations such as T-REx, the incubator for technology companies; a quick quiz called Jargon Watch; and an interview with people active in the entrepreneur community, including Arch Grants Executive Director Ginger Imster, St. Louis Regional Chamber President and CEO Joe Reagan, Greetabl founders Zoe Scharf and Joe Fischer, and Artifox founder Sarah Mirth.
"The Domain Tech Report adds to the Nine Network’s robust lineup of business- and innovation-focused content," said Nine Network President and CEO Jack Galmiche. "Along with Nightly Business Report, PBS NewsHour and BBC World News on Nine PBS, programs like Revolutionaries on Nine World, plus 1 Million Cups held every Wednesday morning in our building, the Nine Network gives St. Louis’ entrepreneur community many opportunities for collaboration and idea generation."
