The tech and innovation sector of the Sunshine Coast economy is growing. Indicators like the recent sell-out of a Startup 101 course and District of Sechelt leadership for a regional partnership agreement with Innovation Island are positive signs for this part of our economy.
And now we are reaching the point where there is a visible local tech + innovation community. People are coming together to pursue collaboration opportunities and connect for mutual support and motivation through groups including the maker community coastmakers group (www.coastmakers.com) and the @SCtechhub professional tech network (www.sctechhub.ca).
@SCtechhub is a network for people working in the tech/ digital space and living on the Sunshine Coast. Designers, developers, animators, analysts, managers, writers, etc. are part of this group that has grown from 20 to 80+ members over the past year.
People working in the tech/ digital space, or interested in learning more about this part of the local economy are invited along to come along next Tuesday evening, April 28, 7pm at the Davis Bay Hall. Please register via www.sctechhub.ca or via this link http://bit.ly/1DBMCXr.
