(PHOENIX) February 13, 2014 — U.S. Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) will visit the content marketing agency iAcquire on Tuesday, February 18 at 1:30 p.m., on a tour of Phoenix-based companies involved in technology-related fields. During the tour, iAcquire co-founders and CEOs Joe Griffin and Jay Swansson will showcase the agency’s facilities and upcoming product launches, including the beta version of a Google Authorship-driven content platform called ClearVoice. Griffin and Swansson will also discuss the local impact of technology and Internet-focused companies with Rep. Schweikert.
“These innovative technology companies are bringing jobs to Arizona and are proof of the need for continued development of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education in our schools,” said Schweikert. “I want to see firsthand how they are propelling technology forward and understand the impacts of the STEM gap and what can be done to support their needs for skilled workers.”
Companies scheduled for a visit also include Mac6, a for-profit incubator based in Tempe and Picmonic, an ed-tech startup, developing interactive, online, audiovisual learning systems that help students retain and recall information through the use of mnemonic methodologies.
