Initial Task Force Decisions

  • The incubator would be called the Kokomo Technology Center patterned after the Purdue Technology Center.

  • The Kokomo Technology Center would be referred to as a “technology driven” incubator instead of “high tech” – definition not clear.

  • The Technology Committee was charged with identifying the core technologies of our local “technology driven” companies. We got full cooperation.

  • We quickly recognized that this venture was an entrepreneurial experience like any new start-up.

Kokomo technology center ktc changes name
Kokomo Technology Center (KTC) Changes Name

In an October 2004 press release, the Kokomo Technology Center announced it had changed it’s name to:

The new name was derived from the word “invent,” which means to produce or contrive by the use of ingenuity or imagination, and “trek” because it takes startup companies on a journey that is sometimes difficult, and unities the two to reflect the mission and vision of the corporation.
