HackerNest Tech Socials (http://hackernest.com/cities/) are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech community. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch), and brimming with Ultra Smart People.

Follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/hackernest) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/hackernest/), like us on Facebook (http://facebook.com/hackernest), hi-5 us in person!

The typical Tech Social agenda:

- folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize

- quick announcements, thank sponsors

- back to chatting

- head home, exhilarated from great conversations!


HackerNest Tech Socials are Entry by Donation - any amount appreciated, but $5 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.



RBC (http://www.rbc.com/)

RBC recently launched RBC Research, a team which supports RBC’s innovation strategy through fundamental scientific study and exploration in machine learning theory and applications with the goal of developing state-of-the-art financial technologies. RBC is also an active contributor to the Canadian innovation ecosystem, including working with organizations like TechToronto, the C100 and as a founding partner of NextAI, a global innovation program for artificial intelligence related ventures.

HackerNest is proud to have RBC as a North American sponsor!

Sponsors (http://hackernest.com/sponsor_info/) make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. Please email [masked] for ways to connect with the HackerNest community!


Retro's ESports Bar (http://www.retrosesports.com/)

They wanted to play video games, drink beer, and eat food. It started super small and had no intention of building to the 200+ members it has now.

Retro's boasts a vast array of video games and consoles. They have Xbox One, Playstation 4, SNES, N64, 12 gaming computers and many more! They also have numerous video games to go along with our systems.

We're on the lookout for easy to access offices with space that can fit our audience (standing-room only). Please email [masked] (or organizer email) if you’d like to host a Tech Social!


Peterborough's start-up incubator (http://www.innovationcluster.ca/) offering full residential and virtual support services. We love helping innovation & tech focused entrepreneurs & startups grow!

If you’re a Community or Meetup group looking to promote an event or discount for HackerNest members, please email [masked].
