If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable introductions to other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce economic and/or professional growth. Can you afford not to come?
Come prepared to do your work. This is not an 8 hour business networking event. Other than some members meeting for a Peer2Peer group meeting at 8:30am and potential Lunch&Learn, there are no other planned structured activities during the day.
What time you spend at The HiVE is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for the Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.
The Burlington HiVE is an open concept office space reengineered for IT professionals, startups, freelancers and entrepreneurs. Those in the tech space know that “collisions”, unplanned interfacing between IT, Digital Media, ecommerce, etc., professionals often produce economic and/or professional growth.

When: Friday, August 29, 2014. Open from 8:30am - 5pm
Cost: No cost for Silicon Halton members ($30 value each).
