Silicon Halton Day: Milton Innovation Centre

Friday August 5, 2016  |  Drop-in Anytime, 8:30am-4:30pm  |  Milton Innovation Centre

MEV Collage

Once each month the Innovation Centre opens its doors to Silicon Halton members.  Whether this your first opportunity to experience co-working or your 15th time, join fellow Silicon Halton members, and Innovation Centre members, at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the MEV in Milton.

"Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem." - Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term "Coworking" and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Choose your own window

What time you spend at the Innovation Centre is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for a Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.

History

We got the idea for a New Tech meetup from the Denver Tech Community and sudcess their New Tech meetups have had since 2006.  Not solely the sudcess of the meetup itself, but the success of instilling a sense of belonging and connectedness in the Denver area, the same as Silicon Halton has inspired to do since we launched in 2009.

speed networking 300x100We are excited to be providing an opportunity to generate additional buzz about each local tech company and their products. Each company can expect up to 1,500 people will learn about them and their product by the end of the New Tech meetup.

We hope everyone leaves the New Tech meetup inspired and with an even greater appreciation for the cool technology that is being created locally and the numerous tech jobs created.
