Drinks (beer, wine, soda, water) on the house! This month, we feature women in technology, held here, and at Tech Socials across multiple HackerNest cities. What we'll do:
- kung-fu-kick gender stereotypes in the face and push for a 50:50 male-female ratio at an open tech event!
- encourage further inclusion of women in STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math) industries.
- help local groups and organizations get more face-time and funding to run community-building events.
We'd like partners and sponsors that encourage and support the proliferation and success of women in technology. Join us as a...
Collaborating Partner if you are an advocacy, support or interest group/organization that would like to co-produce this event with us and get funding to run even more community events.

Rough lineup (pretty much always in development)
- 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
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. Strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere - not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York. Tech Socials in Toronto saw our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.
Sponsors make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. We're always looking for new friends!

Tech folks, tech events, tech love.
HackerNest is a nonprofit community movement focused on building supportive Silicon Valley like tech communities in every city - strengthening local tech ecosystems globally through unpretentious social events and hackathons. We’re nurturing cohesive communities today to empower them with more relevant and accessible peer-based tech education tomorrow. How? We do this by cramming lots of smart, accomplished people into a room with free beer. Our relaxed, down-to-earth Tech Socials became Canada’s largest tech meetups in year 1 (now we're in multiple cities). Our membership - diverse and highly technical. Developers, designers, engineers, social media/business folk, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. gather regularly to socialize, talk tech, maybe hear a speaker, and meet future co-founders, employees, funders, and friends. Strict no-douchebag policy.
