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!

October Happy Hour in Santa Monica

Needs a location

Hi all! Our next joint happy hour will be on October 5th and we will be going back to the Santa Monica Whaler! It will be our usual four meetups plus UCLA alumni that we sometimes do our event with :)
Here is the info Bryan posted for our event:
Hello,
We are doing our five way meetup group happy hour again! This time we will return to The Santa Monica Whaler (not to be confused with the Venice Whaler).
I was able to work in an exclusive extended happy hour from 6:30-8:00pm. So, a little added incentive to get there on the earlier side to reap the benefits!
For those of you that made the last event, it was a little crammed with how many people we had. I was able to secure the Ocean Ave facing patio as well as the full west side of the bar for our event. They are staffing an extra bartender for our group this time around as well.
The Santa Monica Whaler is located at 101 Broadway Ave SM CA 90401. (The Corner of Broadway and Ocean)
Check out the venue on their Instagram page @santamonicawhaler
Feel free to bring friends and business cards if you are looking to network.
PARKING:
• The big public parking structure located just North of the corner of Broadway and 2nd Street is your best bet for parking.
• Public Meters and street parking lining Ocean Blvd and surrounding streets
No car? No problem:
Uber (https://www.uber.com/) – request, ride and pay via your mobile phone
Lyft (https://www.lyft.com/) – a ride whenever you need one
Lets not forget these environmentally friendly options
Metro - $1.75
Blue Bus (http://bigbluebus.com/) - $1.25
Bike – free but lock your bike
Walk – free
Rollerblade – free
See you there!
