Our goal is to try and connect folks in Northwest Indiana into a Tech Startup community. So this is a group for anyone interested in tech startups, development, web software, internet delivery, etc. Our goal for the evening is for people to simply get to know each other and to discuss future hack-a-thon's and startup weekend. http://valparaiso.startupweekend.org
Whether you are a Zen coding master or a newbie looking to connect up on a project, all skills levels are welcome. (And all ages- family friendly venue)
We started this group for the support and development of Hackers, Hipsters and Hustlers( developers, web designers and tech entrepreneurs or businesses) from Valparaiso, the University, and the surrounding areas. With express purpose of developing into a an Startup accelerator program with access to a startup venturee fund
We are looking forward to exploring and building great and enduring companies with everybody.
