Utah Tech Week is officially kicking off its first year the week of January 23rd! With the slogan “It’s a tech week by the people, for the people, happening wherever people want,” we are thrilled to be one of the places where Tech Week is happening. We have a great week ahead lined up with the following events:
Monday, January 23rd: Panel series with venturecapital.org at 9:30am and 11:00am.
Tuesday, January 24th: Networking breakfast with V School at 9:00am followed by a mixer with One Utah at 3:00pm
Thursday, January 26th: Bench to Bedside Mentor Mixer at 6:00pm
Friday, January 27th: Pride ERG Gathering with Equality Utah at 5:00pm
Additionally, we are partnering with all our host organizations during Utah Tech Week for a warm winter clothing drive! We are asking members of the community to donate any warm, winter clothing that they have available. The list includes, but is not limited to: gloves, hats, scarves, and coats. Please drop any donated items off during any tech week event, or at the front desk of The Shop during business hours, Monday- Thursday 8:30am-6:00pm, and Fridays 8:30am-5:00pm. At the end of the month, we will be assembling donations into warm weather kits, which we will then drop off to neighboring shelters. The assembly is open to anyone in the community that would like to participate!
We are so excited to be hosting throughout the week and continuing to support startups, VC firms, community organizations, and more to help cultivate and enrich the Utah Tech Industry. If you’re interested in learning more or attending Tech Week, head to their website. We can’t wait to see you at The Shop SLC!
