   Conversation will continue!  

We will not stop here, and plan to continue the conversation through a series of webinars that will carry us through fall and winter. You can also expect more Networking With Purpose sessions. Interested in participating? We want to hear your thoughts. We’re looking for transformative seminars that will inspire our next decade of solutions using technology, data, and design for the public good.

2020 was a blast while a challenge

We skipped a big in person event, but we learned a lot switching to remote webinars and even Hackathon! 

The Pivoteers and Pioneers Webisode series presented by OpenHub and HVTechFest was our prelude to the theme of HVTechfest 2020, a theme of divining opportunities for individuals and business within the Hudson Valley in the new normal. With the pandemic lockdown we’ve initiated our own pivot to continue the theme and momentum. HVTechFestival — which originally consists of a one-day conference and one-day Hackathon — continued with the two-day youth Hackathon on October 23–24, 2020.

 

Inaugural 2019 was an ignitor 

HVTechFest 2019 was the largest gathering of the HV Tech ecosystem to date, with 250+ participants and 120+ Hackathoners in attendance. With 40+ speakers, 23 sponsors and 30+ volunteers on board, we were able to achieve our three primary objectives:

  • Brought HV Tech ecosystem together to connect, collaborate, find jobs, hire talent, and create new partnerships and engagements
  • Increased energy and excitement about the HV Tech ecosystem
  • Established HVTechFest as a signature annual event for the ecosystem
