Drinks on us. That's right: free beer/(possibly wine)/water.

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.

We believe that strong, supportive tech communities should exist everywhere - not just in hotspots like San Francisco and New York. In 2011, we started running Tech Socials in Toronto (, where our monthly attendance grew to over 350+ technologists literally 100% from word-of-mouth.

Our local team is looking for folks interested in helping run this splinter cell. Please read the FAQ ( on our continually broken/changing site and GET IN TOUCH ([masked]) if you or someone you know want to help us make awesome stuff happen.

The typical Tech Social schedule:
- 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

SURF Incubator: ( A community-supported place for entrepreneurs.

SURF Incubator was founded in 2009 by entrepreneur Seaton Gras as a way to provide mentorship and meeting space for startups launching technology-focused businesses. This local group of technology entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts have collaborated to advance SURF’s mission and opened a 22,000 square foot facility in downtown Seattle. Aspiring entrepreneurs are provided office space, educational programming, peer-to-peer collaboration, free or heavily discounted business resources, and access to a network of mentors, investors, and corporate partners.

Wanna show off your office? We're always looking for big open spaces with 100+ (standing room) capacity that are easily accessible.

We love hardcore nerdcore.
Tech folks, tech events, tech love.
