Vancoffee: A Vantechy Track, November 14th

Designed for tech executives, but welcome to anyone, this meetup is a birds-of-a-feather discussion group for those who are looking to benefit from the shared experience of Vancouver’s tech community. Why so early? Because when you run a company or manage a team, your free time either happens before employees show up for work or at the end of the day (and the last thing you want to do after a day of meetings is entertain a group discussion).

Feel free to bring your breakfast and a mug; we will bring the coffee, creamer, and sugar.
