A monthly meetup presented by Techstars Startup Programs and Entrepreneur First. This event is consisting of like-minded individuals to discuss the efforts of their startup, entrepreneurship, deep tech, corporate innovation, market insights or personal goals.

We welcome any curious individual to celebrate entrepreneurship with us. No matter you are students with an interest in startup; industry experts with fast moving, open-minded, critical thinking; or someone who sees problems, finds creative solutions, and drives innovation.
