February2018 Meetup100

Tuesday, February 13, 2018  |  7:00 pm to 9:30 pm | QE Park Community Center, Oakville

Being A Tech Company Founder Can Be Challenging

Being a company founder in Tech is an incredible adventure in anyone's life.  Whether you're building platforms, selling software, delivering IT services or disrupting industries,  it takes a great deal of panache, persistence, patience, and perseverance to build a business in this rapidly evolving industry.

As we have reached Silicon Halton's Meetup 100, we’re calling upon Silicon Halton member companies to come tell their story about the lessons they learned in building their businesses - their business models, their successes, their failures, their challenges, and what they would do differently if they had to start all over!

Rapid Style Presentations

We'll have 10 x 10 minute presentations with networking before and after

Friday, March 2, 2018  |  Drop-in Anytime, 8:30am-4:30pm  |  MEV Innovation Centre, Milton  

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.
