ATTEND FROM HOME: Welcome to the HackerNest Canada Tech SpeedMeet event, specially made for those of you who love serial conversations over the entire night with the other great people in our tech & developer community. No long panels-talks-speakers (or any for that matter), no breakout sessions, no other distractions. This event is a fun, 2 hours of 1-on-1 conversations in 5 minute bursts - just enough time to get to know someone at a more-than-superficial level, and long enough to know if you vibe well.
"HackerNest feels like coming home" - attendees

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE: Folks in tech who want to meet other like-minded people - This event covers our local communities across Canada - Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Mississauga, the Greater Toronto Area, Peterborough, Ottawa, and Montreal.
FEATURES OF THIS HACKERNEST EVENT:
SpeedMeet 1-on-1s: Be automatically matched with other guests to talk directly on-camera for 5 minutes (less if your convo ends faster); opt to stay in touch in one click and your info will be shared with each other. Roll-on to the next person thereafter. Never match with the same person twice. Also, you can also select people to chat directly with too. When it's all done, you'll finally leave, exhausted from great conversations with awesome people!
Ticket sales and funds support our nonprofit's mission to continue uniting tech & developer communities. Thank you for your support!
