The Hub88 TechTalks have become a staple of our community outreach and inspiration efforts. Our mission to ignite the next wave of innovation starts with bringing people together and presenting topics and conversation that challenge the limits of our past experiences with technology and open our minds to new opportunities.
With our inaugural year of Hub88 TechTalks, we’ve brought hundreds of people together to listen, see, and converse with our TechTalk speakers and panels. We’ve furthered our reach with many views on rebroadcasts on the Hub88 YouTube channel. We’ll continue to build this channel so that you can watch and learn from past TechTalks.
The Hub88 TechTalks series is always a free event that makes seemingly deep technical topics accessible to everyone. We’d like to thank the Hub88 programming team for their help in designing and putting on the Hub88 TechTalk series. The programming team is led by Ms. Laurie Swanson, CEO of InspiHER Tech.
Take a look at the breadth of topics and quality of the Hub88 community subject matter experts that continue to inspire us. Stay tuned for more exciting events…
