Details

Join us for our first 2019 Tech Social at the offices of goeasy!
Be sure to come catch up with the awesome people in your local tech and entrepreneurship community - All are welcome! We'll have food, drinks, and awesome conversations!

We've also got some left over gifts from Santa that we'll be giving away to some of our lucky guests, so be sure to stick around at the event for our announcements and our SuperConnect session right after!

"SuperConnect" is a quick, simple, effective activity that connects people with who they need. Participants get 10 seconds to tell the room who they are, who they want to meet, and something they care about. It runs after announcements and sponsor intros. Follow these instructions exactly the 1st time. After that, you can improve it based on feedback. Trust that we only publish stuff that's battle-proven.
