History

We got the idea for a New Tech meetup from the Denver Tech Community and sudcess their New Tech meetups have had since 2006.  Not solely the sudcess of the meetup itself, but the success of instilling a sense of belonging and connectedness in the Denver area, the same as Silicon Halton has inspired to do since we launched in 2009.

speed networking 300x100We are excited to be providing an opportunity to generate additional buzz about each local tech company and their products. Each company can expect up to 1,500 people will learn about them and their product by the end of the New Tech meetup.

We hope everyone leaves the New Tech meetup inspired and with an even greater appreciation for the cool technology that is being created locally and the numerous tech jobs created.

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. 

Our ideas are products of our environment. They are influenced by the conversations around us.
- Clive Thompson, Contributing Editor, Wired Magazine

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?

Lunch & Learn? Maybe

FRIDAY March 24, 2017 | 9am - 10:30am (Date moved due to March Break)

Last Month Chris Herbert of MI6 Agency led us through Traction Marketing goal setting, and as a group we developed 2 goals to focus on:

For the Solopreneur P2P: Consistenly have 10 people at each Solopreneur Meetup over the next 12 months

For each person in attendance: Achieve 1 expression of interest over the next 30 days by promoting both SoloP2P and our companies

We then ran through the 19 Traction Channels, and in the next couple days will focus on 1 or 2 to trial over the next month.  On March 24, we're going to evalutate the results and choose another 1 or 2 channels to trial.

At our April Meetup, we'll evaluate again, and run through the process for one Solopreneur in attendance.

This is an open group targeting the Solopreneurs in Halton. A valuable forum where hi-tech Solopreneurs in our community can learn, grow, and seek peer advice.

Topic: Market Segmentation

Continuing with our sales and marketing track, this month we will be joined by long time Silicon Halton member Nancy Mancini, Principal Consultant at Marcom Blueprints and Marketing Instructor at Humber College to take a look at the power of market segmentation.  This is also a quick sneak peek at some of the programming that will be available with the upcoming launch of the CoLab.

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.
