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?

Are you a Halton based tech company that hires summer students?

Silicon Halton cares deeply about building opportunities for students within Halton region - making this a great place to live, work, and play.  After all, our core is about Technology, Community, and Growth.

With that in mind, we're looking for 30 Silicon Halton members / companies that may be hiring summer students this year - for projects, for internships, and/or for summer employment.  We'd like to help TU20’s gain experience pitching themselves and networking face-to-face.  Each member / company that participates will listen to all 30 second pitches individually, then spend 2 minutes in rapid Q & A with each student.  If you don’t have a current opportunity to offer, you’re still welcome to participate.  You never know when you might need one of these talented Halton students.

Silicon Halton Member / Company Experience From 2016

"When I attended the Tech Under Twenty Pitch Night last year I was truly impressed by the caliber of high school students that we had an opportunity to interview. It was a well organized event and in less than an hour I met several young people who conducted themselves very professionally. There were at least 3 or 4 students that I thought could make a contribution to our entrepreneurial organization over the summer months. In the end we settled on one who worked with our Marketing Department to update our website. I believe it was a mutually beneficial experience and would encourage other employers to get involved. " - Dianne Beveridge - President AYVA Educational Solutions
