About Tech Connect Summer Socials: Downtown Windsor Edition

Explore the Core this summer while you engage with the local tech community and partake in some fun “after 5” networking and unique activities.

Held throughout July and August in the heart of downtown Windsor, these events are your ticket to break free from the screen! It’s all about building connections, learning new things, sharing laughs, and supporting our beloved downtown local businesses.

Who Are These Events For?

The Tech Connect Summer Social events are open to all members of the tech community, both downtown and beyond, including students, professionals, and members and organizations of the broader tech network. Attendance is free, but space is limited.

In this month’s session, let’s talk tech with the former managing editors of TechCrunch…

Join us for an evening of insight, networking, and community at Craft Heads in downtown Windsor. This special event features a Q&A session with University of Windsor Alumni, Darrell Etherington, Network Development professional at OMERS Ventures, founder of The Angle, startup and venture advisor, and former managing editor at TechCrunch, as well as Matt Burns, a former TechCrunch editor as well as the Editorial Director & Co-founder of Michiganian.

Engage with Darrell and Matt as they share their expertise and offer valuable advice on navigating the tech landscape, whether you’re a founder, student, professional, or tech enthusiast. This is a unique opportunity to connect with two prominent figures in the field and ask your burning questions about the tech industry, their career advancement, and advice for startups.

We’ll be hanging out at Craft Heads enjoying their finest brews, accompanied by pizza from Terra Cotta. Network with fellow tech community members, gain insider knowledge and enjoy one of the coolest spaces that downtown Windsor has to offer.

What’s included?

Your free ticket includes entry into the fireside chat as well as a non-alcoholic beverage of your choosing and wood fired pizza from Terra Cotta.
