CLEARWATER, Fla., June 6, 2018 /CNW/ -- Tech Data (Nasdaq: TECD) today announced it has partnered with the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre (MEV) in Milton, Ontario, Canada. The partnership combines Tech Data's position at the center of the IT channel with the MEV's position as the business center of the local community, bringing the collective groups together to provide local businesses with the extended resources and knowledge they need to be successful. Plans for the partnership involve developing a number of new offerings, including free events, workshops, and specialized programming and conferences aimed at increasing business development opportunities and implementing technology services.
"Working with the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre provides us with a unique opportunity to strengthen ties not only with the community, but also with our partners in the region," said Ed Galasso, general manager of Canadian operations, at Tech Data.
