Announcing the first Tech Meetup at the White House

On Friday, April 17th, 50 Tech Meetup organizers from across the United States will convene at the White House for a very special Meetup, hosted by U.S. CTO Megan Smith. These organizers will be welcomed by representatives from the National Economic Council and the Obama administration’s Tech Hire initiative, for this historic one-day gathering.

Tech Meetups are on the rise across America, creating tech infrastructure, spurring innovation, and changing communities for the better. “Tech Meetups are engines for growth, and Tech Meetup organizers are important local leaders,” says Meetup CEO Scott Heiferman. “The power of these Meetups is enormous, and we’re thrilled to see their contributions recognized at the highest levels of government.” The Tech Meetup at the White House marks the beginning of an exciting conversation about the important role Meetups play in the technology community, and we’re excited to bring Meetup organizers together with their peers for a day of conversation, collaboration, and community.

Join the conversation using #WHMeetup, and watch the livestream from 9am – 12pm.
