Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/(possibly wine)/water.
HackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech brethren. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch, yo), and brimming with UltraSmart(TM) people.
***follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, hi-5 us in person!***
We believe that strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere - not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York. In 2011, we started running Tech Socials in Toronto, where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.
Our local team is looking for folks interested in helping run this splinter cell. Please read the FAQ on our continually broken/changing site and GET IN TOUCH if you or someone you know want to help us make awesome stuff happen.
The typical Tech Social schedule:
- 8:00pm: folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize
- 9:00pm: quick intro, thank sponsors, quick announcements
- 9:10pm: back to chatting with interesting people and new friends
- 11:30pm: go home exhausted from great conversations
Sponsors make this growing movement possible - email us to chat!
SURF Incubator: A community-supported place for entrepreneurs.
SURF Incubator was founded in 2009 by entrepreneur Seaton Gras as a way to provide mentorship and meeting space for startups launching technology-focused businesses. This local group of technology entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts have collaborated to advance SURF’s mission and opened a 22,000 square foot facility in downtown Seattle. Aspiring entrepreneurs are provided office space, educational programming, peer-to-peer collaboration, free or heavily discounted business resources, and access to a network of mentors, investors, and corporate partners.
Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 100+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible.
We love hardcore nerdcore.
Tech folks, tech events, tech love.
HackerNest is an international nonprofit uniting local tech communities through unpretentious Tech Socials and hackathons. We cram lots of smart, accomplished people into a room with free drinks.
