30+ Years of STEM Collaboration
How We Got Started
The Technology Coast Manufacturing and Engineering Network, TeCMEN, was established by the One Okaloosa EDC in 1989 to be the premier business advocate for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) industries. TeCMEN provides opportunities for innovative collaboration and advanced technical expertise locally, regionally, and in the competitive global marketplace.
The TeCMEN member’s president, CEO or designated representative meets monthly to discuss business opportunities. These monthly forums allow member companies to remain aware of local business opportunities and to discuss expanding their capabilities through contract-teaming and networking. Throughout the year there are opportunities for guest participation events.
We Are Focused
TeCMEN represents more than 40 influential technology, engineering and manufacturing enterprises and key educational and workforce development partners with STEM specializations. This group is comprised of Fortune 500, mid-sized and small local businesses, to include disadvantaged businesses.
