It has been said that to build a great technology-based business, you need three types: the Hacker (coder), the Hustler, (entrepreneur) and the Hipster, (designer). The SuperMeetup is a about connecting Winnipeg innovation communities: learning together, understanding the skillsets of others in the innovation community and hopefully fostering partnerships that lead to great things. The SuperMeetup is also about recognizing the rapid growth of the Winnipeg meetup group community.

The talks will be of interest to everyone in the room with a focus on connection points between design, entrepreneurship and coding. The talks should be fairly sophisticated, not shy of jargon, preferably actionable and aspirational in nature for a professional audience.
