Women 2.0 City Meetup – Toronto Launch Event

Women 2.0 City Meetup is coming to Toronto, and will be launching with their first meetup on November 6th. Women 2.0 is a media brand focused on connecting with the next generation of tech leaders, both men and women, and they currently host their networking events in over 20 cities globally.

The launch of Women 2.0 City Meetup Toronto will host featured speakers Shaherose Charania, the CEO and Founder of Women 2.0, as well as Betty Devita, President of MasterCard Canada. You can also expect to see and rub shoulders with a veritable who’s who of Tech in Toronto, so make sure to set this event in your calendar!

Women 2.0 City Meetup Toronto welcomes both men and women, and will continue to host their events on the 1st Thursday of every month. Visit Women 2.0 City Meetup Toronto to find out more or to get your ticket.

#EdAppHack: Saturday, October 25th & Sunday, October 26th

 

We’re going to be joining learners, teachers and community app developers this weekend at the MaRS Discovery District for the #EdAppHack, a two-day learning opportunity, using the Hackathon model to address the changing dialogue between students and their teachers, mentors, and  industry professionals. #EdAppHack will be focusing on the theme of STEM and using the hands-on experience to address concerns and talking points on the changing nature of education, all while creating original apps and with the aide of various supportive  collaborators. There’s also going to be a keynote by Robleh Jama, founder of Tiny Hearts,  an award winning app studio based here in Toronto, and lots of industry professionals from all ends of Toronto.

Both students and teachers will be able to get their hands dirty, work together and collaborate to brainstorm, build and pitch their app ideas, and it’s all going down this weekend.  To get involved, visit edapphack.com and sign up.
