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

HVTechFest-2020 will continue to build momentum during two-day festival October 23-24th, 2020.
