Our approach:

  1. People in technology is our key audience, we want to attract and build the stronger tech community in the Hudson Valley. You can expect technology covered! 
  2. We know technology on it's own does not save businesses. It enables pivot, change. Entrepreneurship, financing, and other aspects of the business are needed to succeed. We are adding entrepreneurship and pivot track to our list. We welcome small and medium business owners,  people who could become customers of technology.
  3. Networking opportunities are same important as the programming. We always offer cool networking opportunities, nowdays online. Join us to see what is available!

Founded by OpenHub, Hudson Valley's premier tech education program, the two-day event will continue to be a major conference in the region's burgeoning tech space.
