Summertime Meetup!

  • Jun 25, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

There has never been a better time to be a tech entrepreneur in Victoria, and you're invited to come celebrate this at our summer meetup! For the first time in this group's 3-year history, this meetup will be co-hosted in the downtown offices of two Victoria tech companies, ushering in a new era of the group by taking it "on the road" to the offices of different Victoria tech co's. 

At this meetup, we will hear a talk from the Mayor of Victoria, Dean Fortin. Those that know Mayor Fortin know that he is a major supporter of our local tech sector, which now makes the largest economic impact in the region ahead of every other industry. This meetup will be a great opportunity to hear from the Mayor about what the tech sector means to Victoria, learn about what the city is doing to support and encourage entrepreneurs to start their companies here, and most importantly a great opportunity for you to meet the Mayor and tell him the story of your business! 

We will have beer, wine, and soft drinks provided by our hosts. Space is limited to 100, so please RSVP early (it WILL fill up). See you soon!

    Covering the topic of what is being done to make economic development take off locally is welcome.
    Could Sage Baker, director of Victoria's Economic Development, be invited to speak at a future session. We're all hands-on people (techies, finance people, etc.). I think hearing from the mechanic who works on the engine of economic development would be fascinating as we all know, first-hand, what the experience of running a business locally looks like, but hearing of the initiatives that are going to be put into place would be great.
