About Hack Night:
Every Tuesday night from 6pm to 10pm, “Hack Nights” come alive with hustlers, hackers and hipsters coming together to work on their start-up ideas. If you are working on something tech related, and are in the pre-investment stage, this event is for you!
We are committed to helping grow Calgary’s tech ecosystem by starting at the bottom, with the simple, yet profound ideas that explode into full time startups and eventually big time businesses. After years of working with existing entrepreneurs and startups, we noticed that there are many organizations, mentors and funders that support existing startups. There isn't many that assist individuals that have an idea for a startup and doesn't know where and how to get started! This is how where we come in. Join us on a Tuesday and learn more about the support that exists in your community for you and your idea.
