Silicon Halton Day @ MEVIC – June 2018

June 1 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Once each month the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre opens its doors to Silicon Halton members.

Whether this your first opportunity to experience co-working or your 15th time, join fellow Silicon Halton members, and Innovation Centre members, at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the MEVIC in Milton.

Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem.” – Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term “Coworking” and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

FREE for Silicon Halton members on Silicon Halton Days

What time you spend at the Innovation Centre is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for a Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.  Free wifi, plenty of power outlets and seating locations to choose from.

Blockchain technology has been hailed as everything from the renaissance of money to the new internet. Early adopters are looking for ways to apply the technology, with use cases currently focused on financial services at the industry level, and even in terms of new forms of governance at the discipline level. This meetup aims to present an overview of this fascinating technology. (more…)
