Beta Testing Night

Syracuse CoWorks and The Tech Garden present their first Beta Testing Night!

On the eve of Hack Upstate, please join us on October 11th from 4:30pm to 7:30pm to learn about and test-drive this quarter’s most innovative, locally developed technology! The format is simple: sign up and bring your laptop, tablet or other internet enabled device with you. The companies are numbered, so start at the beginning – sit down with the company, learn about their technology and take it for a spin!

It’s free to sign up, but we’re limiting the event to 40 people – so sign up now to reserve your spot! Food, beer and wine provided courtesy of Anthony Stevens at AXA Advisors and Dave Carnie at Pyramid Brokerage.


Contact the Syracuse CoWorks Community Manager, Ben Bragdon with any questions regarding this event at [masked].
