Our Hosts

The Digital Media Zone at Ryerson University is a co-working space and business incubator for technology startups in downtown Toronto. Located in the heart of the Yonge/Dundas district, a number of the DMZ’s own startups will be showcasing some of the great experiences they design for their customers.

Feedback

A lot of last meetup’s attendees took the time to complete the post-event survey, which we really appreciate! We heard you on some of the pain points, and we’ll do our best to grow a community driven event series. If you’ve got ideas or feedback, please send them to the organizers: [masked] or [masked]. You can also connect with us via twitter: @tailoredUX.

Volunteers

We’ve got an amazing roster of volunteers, but please let us know if you’d like to help out. You’ll be put on the official volunteer roster and we’ll reach out to you about our upcoming volunteer meeting.

I need a job/I'm hiring! Can you help?

Sure thing. Send us an e-mail ahead of time with your company's logo / name for an opportunity to hop on up during the announcements and introduce yourself and the opportunity you're looking for.

Will there be food?

Pizza and drinks, as always ;) This time around, we’ll start with the pizza right at 7pm, so being on time is a great idea if you love pizza! We will have 1 vegan and 1 gluten-free pizza available as well for those who let us know about their dietary restrictions in advance when they RSVP.

How much does it cost?

Event attendance is free-of-cost, but you must RSVP. If you are bringing a guest, please have them sign up on Meetup and RSVP as well. Check-ins will be happening at the door.
