JaxTech is about the tech of business in Jacksonville. This group’s mission is to highlight local Jax organizations and how they are using technology and innovation in various ways—whether it’s for marketing or ops, hardware or software, so we can all collectively learn and apply that knowledge in our own businesses and industries.
Jax Tech was founded by Kelly Dyer, serial entrepreneur and CEO of SourceFuse and Inventory Source, in 2015 as a way to bring together the siloed Jacksonville community under one roof to discuss technology and highlight the innovation that was happening in the city. Over the last five years, Jax Tech has grown to over 2,000 members who meet regularly to learn, share, and collaborate. Each meeting allows for interactive presentations on the creative and practical use of technology from Jax businesses and startups, and provides for the exchange of new ideas, meeting fellow innovators, and continuing to expand the overall technology scene in Jax.
From startups to executives, those seasoned in the technology space, and those that don’t work in technology at all—all are welcome! The strength of Jax Tech comes from its diverse members that form the Jax Tech community. Come meet fellow technology-minded individuals and build lasting relationships.

“There’s a tech community here; there’s a tech community in BayMeadows, there’s a tech community in downtown, there’s a tech community in Orange Park. Being able to bring them all together through events like Jax Tech, I think, is really how you create those connections. Then, people start meeting together individually and really driving new ideas, new technologies. Its really from people who are interested in it getting the opportunity to get to talk to each other in this type of setting. I really think Jack Tech does a great job!” Phillip O’Donnell, VP Data Science and Analytics at Adecco.
