• The Meetup

For our November meetup, we will have Henry Copeland from speaking about virtual races and fitness.

Humans have been racing since the dawn of time. We race to hunt, to play, to excel. And, increasingly, we use virtual races to stay fit.

Henry Copeland has spent the last four years running, which powers virtual races to motivate employee fitness. In this presentation, he'll talk about how companies like Fitbit, Peloton, Strava and Racery are trying (sometimes successfully, sometimes not) to keep people excited about fitness.

• Demoing

As always, everyone is welcome to bring their VR headsets to give demos. If you will be demoing, send us a message or comment below so we have enough tables ready.

After Henry's presentation, let us know if you have a start-up, project or another area of expertise that you would like to present on.


Looking forward to seeing everyone! Feel free to reach out to us on Meetup if you have any questions.
