Here's your opportunity to experience and experiment with co-working. Join fellow members at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the coworking space Halton HiVE, Burlington.

Random opportunities and discoveries that arise from interactions with others – play a large role in coworking
- from Working in the UnOffice from Night Owls Press
If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions, the random opportunities, that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable interactions with other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce discoveries, economic and/or professional growth.
If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?
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.
Free wifi, plenty of power outlets and seating locations to choose from.
The Halton 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.

Cost: No cost for Silicon Halton members ($39 value each).

Topic: Goal Setting
It's January and time for planning. We will review some techniques for setting goals and creating and using planning tools to help us reach them. This meeting will lay the groundwork for a year of success for members and the group as a whole to be revisted throughout 2017. Come out and get ready to move forward.
The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments.
Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton. Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.
Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting.
Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.
