What we're about

Hello and welcome to the group! This group is created to help improve human lives by means of technology and have fun along the way. We used to showcase new technology monthly followed by networking, but the world is changing, and so are we!

Going forward we will be posting online and in-person events.

Our goal is to promote new technologies to the tech-interested public, as well as potential clients, employees, and investors. Our mission is to provide inspiration and networking opportunities to those who want to find their passion, pursue what they love and fulfill their potential!

If you have an event that you want to post or organize, please contact the Organizer via Message button. Let’s innovate and share tech with humans around the world!

Online event

Free Event.

This is a virtual meeting on Zoom (www.zoom.us). The meeting ID is posted on this page under the "Online event" heading. The passcode will be sent to you after you RSVP. Please make sure that receiving email notifications from group Admins is enabled for your Meetup account.

VIDEO CONFERENCE DETAILS:

10AM-11AM Introductions on Zoom. 11AM-12PM Informal Networking using Zoom breakout rooms or other channels.

You can download the Zoom client ahead of time at https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting. I recommend you familiarize yourself with the Zoom app. There are some helpful tutorials at https://bit.ly/3alN4NV.

A few things to prepare:

• You should check in at about 9:45 to make sure you can connect and your audio and video are working right.

• To handle introductions, you will be called on when it's your turn to introduce yourself. A microphone will be required for us to hear you. If you choose computer audio please make sure yours is set up and working with Zoom — there is a test function within the app.

• Having your own camera and having it on is required.

• By default, you will be muted at the start. You can unmute yourself when it’s your turn to speak. Please mute yourself again afterward to avoid disruptions to the meeting.

• Once we are done with the introductions we'll have some themed breakout rooms (tech, sales/marketing, finance, general) for networking, or you can contact other participants directly through LinkedIn/email/phone/Skype/FB/other channels.

• IMPORTANT: If you'd like to connect with other participants after the session by using the messaging feature in Meetup make sure to change your Privacy Settings to allow being contacted by other SMNT members.
