Each month, we bring together speakers from the top tech brands across the country to share their expertise and lend advice to our community of tech professionals and entrepreneurs. Each event draws between 300-400 attendees. We also highlight one emerging entrepreneur at each of our events to showcase what they're working on to the community. The organization has grown from 4 entrepreneurs at a Starbucks to 9,000 members across South Florida.
Our hands-on workshops cover a variety of emerging skills, helping the community stay competitive in today's workforce. Topics include PR/Media Training, Data Science, Search Engine Optimization, Intro to Wordpress, ReactJS, Unity3D, Product Management, UX/Design, How to Pitch to Investors and many more!
Our networking events allow the community to get to know each other better. Each event includes an icebreaker where founders can meet their next co-founder, designer, developer, marketer, etc. This helps those looking to fill jobs or looking for job prospects, as well as entrepreneurs looking for investment or mentorship.
