HackerNest Tech Socials are a fun, relaxed way to connect with your local tech community. Atmosphere: chill, friendly, unpretentious, agenda-free (no sales pitch), and brimming with Ultra Smart People.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram, like us on Facebook, hi-5 us in person!

The typical Tech Social agenda:  

– folks arrive, grab drinks, socialize  

– quick announcements, thank sponsors  

– back to chatting  

– head home, exhilarated from great conversations!  


Fishackathon returns November 18-19, 2017 in over 40 cities around the world. Be a part of the movement – an international hackathon series to make our fisheries more sustainable and equitable.


HackerNest Tech Socials are Entry by Donation – any amount appreciated, but $5 suggested. No amount is too little! If a cash donation is too restrictive, please join us anyway – just let us know at the door.




RBC recently launched RBC Research, a team which supports RBC’s innovation strategy through fundamental scientific study and exploration in machine learning theory and applications with the goal of developing state-of-the-art financial technologies. RBC is also an active contributor to the Canadian innovation ecosystem, including working with organizations like TechToronto, the C100 and as a founding partner of NextAI, a global innovation program for artificial intelligence related ventures. 

RBC has come onboard as a North American sponsor of Hackernest.

Sponsors make this growing movement possible, so we treasure and build deep, long-term relationships with the companies that endorse us. Please email [email protected] for ways to connect with the HackerNest community!
