TECH SOCIALS are exactly what they sound like; home to both seasoned and fledgling technologists alike. They are down-to-earth, agenda-free community events where talented, enthusiastic tech nerds gather to socialize, wax technological, and meet future co-founders, employees, funders, and friends.

Our HACKATHONS rally experts and technologists to put their skills towards socially-beneficial causes. We partner with the U.S. Department of State on Fishackathon which runs in dozens of cities worldwide; with Facebook and the UK/Canadian governments on DementiaHack - the world’s foremost hackathon dedicated to dementia and Alzheimer’s, and many others. We also provide CONSULTING SERVICES to governments and corporations that draw from our unique experiences in producing blockbuster internal and external innovation events.

HackerNest MEMBERS are diverse, highly skilled, and passionate about their industry. Developers, designers, engineers, business/marketing/sales-types, entrepreneurs, investors, and others regularly attend and participate in our universally-acclaimed events and communities.

SPONSORS power our movement. They include the likes of the Canadian, UK, and U.S. governments, Facebook, Amazon, Airbnb, Microsoft, RBC, and many other stellar brands. Interested? Please email sponsor@hackernest.com
