How We Built the Sons of Technology Meet Up

Tuesday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 208
110 E 2nd St


In a world deeply impacted by large multi-nationals seeking to streamline and homogenize professional culture, behaviour and workforces for decades; both social and professional networking have suffered. Authenticity lost in an attempt of constant and polished networking for rapid commercial gain, and with that, true and lasting connections are rarely formed.

As a response SOT created a highly differentiated networking culture. Our culture lives somewhere between the reality of demanding high-tech careers and the social reality of a true MC culture - a culture based on intelligence, authenticity and fellowship. In less than two years we have grown to be more than 800 Sons strong.
