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!
See and feel how Augmented Reality brings Oakville to life in a new way!
If you have kids, or are a kid at heart, you've probably heard of Pokémon Go and even played it! As of April 2017, over 65 million people were playing this augmented reality (AR) game monthly and the app had been downloaded over 750 million times*.As millions have hunted for Pokémon with their smartphones they've also been introduced to Augmented Reality (AR).
AR blurs the line between what's real and what's computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear, feel and smell.
But, how else can AR be used to provide new, fun and interesting experiences? That's what OAKVILLE IMMERSED is all about. It's an Immersive Exhibition that brings photography, video and augmented reality together to showcase Oakville in a new way.
Join us Jan 25 and 26, 7 to 10 pm at Apple Suites, in Oakville. You will see local photos and products come to life! Just bring your smartphone. Network, enjoy some fine wine and experience how technology can bring new experiences to tourism, culture and product promotion.
Special: Bring your AR experience home! Purchase an AR calendar while quantities last!

Topic: Breaking Bad Habits and Building Confidence
A few of our members have already taken Mel Robbin's CreativeLive course "How to Break the Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence", so we are going to share some of her teachings with the group and coach each other to better outcomes in 2018.
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.
