Surado Solutions, the developer of sensible On-premise and Cloud SaaS CRM solutions for more than a decade announced that the Intelligent Community Forum will visit Surado Corporate Center this week to see firsthand the efforts to build a high-tech and bio tech incubator. The ICF visit to Surado Corporate Center is part of a larger visit to the City of Riverside where many efforts in high tech innovation are in play.
On January 19, 2011, The Intelligent Community Forum named its 2011 Top Seven Intelligent Communities of the Year which included the City of Riverside. The City of Riverside was recognized for building a tech-based economy that seizes the opportunities of the broadband revolution. A nonprofit, SmartRiverside, focuses on technology initiatives, and a CEO Forum of local tech companies has produced a plan for tech-based transformation. The community has partnered with its universities to develop tech parks, incubators, business accelerators and mentoring programs. Carriers have deployed fiber and wireless networks reaching 80% of the city. A $1.6 billion revitalization program begun in 2006 is improving traffic flow, replacing aging water, sewer and electric infrastructure, and improving police, fire, parks and libraries.
Surado CEO, Sundip R. Doshi has a long history in helping grow high tech in this region. As the founder and past chair of the Riverside Technology CEO Forum as well as the Executive Vice President of SmartRiverside, Mr. Doshi continues to invest and promote Riverside as a destination for high-tech businesses. One effort currently underway by Mr. Doshi is to create an environment that is conducive for tech companies to innovate and grow in the University Research Park. To further this effort, Mr. Doshi is promoting the building of a High-Tech and Bio Tech Incubator in the Surado Corporate Center with the collaboration of the City of Riverside, County of Riverside and University of California, Riverside. Currently, Surado Corporate Center houses 5 high tech companies including Surado.
The Intelligent Community Forum is a think tank that studies the economic and social development of the 21st Century community. Whether in industrial or developing nations, communities are challenged to create prosperity, stability and cultural meaning in a world where jobs, investment and progress increasingly depend on broadband communications. For the 21st Century community, connectivity is a double-edge sword: threatening established ways of life on the one hand, and offering powerful new tools to build prosperous, inclusive economies on the other. The Intelligent Community Forum seeks to share the best practices of the world's Intelligent Communities in adapting to the demands of the Broadband Economy by conducting research, hosting events, publishing newsletters and producing an international awards program.
