What is Silicon Halton?
We are the grassroots hi tech community of people who make a living, make meaning, and make things happen in technology in Halton Region. Everything we do and stand for is based on our three pillars:
Technology. We are passionate about technology and how it can make our lives and our planet better, more fun and meaningful.
Community. We are committed to connecting and creating a strong social network for IT professionals, hi-tech entrepreneurs and executives, educators, students, companies and technology enthusiasts that live or work in Halton.
Growth. We are focused on helping people, companies and the hitech industry grow and have Halton become known globally as the best place for people in technology to live, work and play.
What Do We Do?
We action various physical and virtual programs to help members connect with their Halton hi-tech community and create opportunities for business growth, professional growth, and partnerships. We have become the platform for Halton tech companies to dream, discuss, develop, test, and launch their business ideas. We've watched members become empowered and launch new companies. At present we run:
- Peer2Peer Groups
