Mission Statement

Wherever technology booms, prosperity follows. HackerNest builds tech and innovation communities because they’re the cornerstones of economic development that will lead to people living healthier, happier lives. We help tech nerds support each other, businesses find talent, and innovators meet collaborators.

Description

A Canadian federally incorporated nonprofit corporation since 2012, we run two superconnectors - Community centric Tech Social events that bring technologists from all walks of life together to find friends, get advice, and check out opportunities, and Elite Meets, the small, invite-only dinners hosted by our sponsors to focus on learning and thought leadership specific to technology roles.

Our special events rally around causes and innovation: CourtHack for access to justice, Fishackathon for oceans preservation & sustainable fisheries, et al. Expos and Job Fairs bring technologists and the companies, NGOs and governments looking to hire them together.


We have been afforded Special Consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council. We are in the City of Toronto’s economic and technology roundtable and was part of the White House's Opportunity Project delivering solutions empowering Americans to build tools to improve community access and opportunity using federal/local open data. The U.S. Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships also named HackerNest as Managing Partner for Fishackathon 2017-18, a global hackathon series in dozens of cities around the world.
