Who has covered us:
Endorse our community movement, connect to a quality peer-group of like-minded technologists. We believe in developing deep, long-term sponsor relationships. Our sponsors are continually engaged with our highly technical audience in a personal, not-so-formal way. Typically, our sponsors:
want to connect with potential recruits
We complement your traditional recruiting methods. Like a team-based recruiting exercise, your people will come out in droves, engage with our audience informally, and really get to know potential hires, before they even step in the office for an interview.
evangelize their products and services
No sales pitch, no long, boring presentations, and no one falling asleep in the back of the room. Build on natural curiosity and the informal and tactful approach of informal conversation. Evangelizing your business hasn’t ever been this easy.
build community goodwill, and, nurture more brand recognition
By throwing weight behind our localized, well-respected communities, you demonstrate excellence in socially responsible citizenship that complements corporate, recruitment, and brand development goals.
Sponsorship funds our community building efforts, quality events, strategic expansion, brand development, and infrastructure. Email us for our sponsorship docs, we’d be glad to send them over and chat.

Around the World
With zero marketing, HackerNest Tech Socials have gone international, and with significant momentum:
- 7,000+ actual, in-real-life members in 5 countries and 10 cities – and growing!
- 18,000+ drinks served (it doesn’t include water!)
- 60+ events hosted in 10 cities, 5 countries, 3 continents
- 75 to 450+ attendees per event, depending on city and theme
World Domination. Seriously.
Today, HackerNest is in a dozen cities internationally. We’ve anchored our Tech Socials in opposite sides of the world – from Toronto to Kuala Lumpur, and are now sowing the seeds in other cities for new HackerNest “splinter cells’ to start and flourish.
For 2014-15, we’re developing our audience in the established footholds we currently have, and are building the infrastructure and platforms that will allow for efficient and exacting multi-fold city growth, in the manner and flavor of our original Tech Social 3 years ago.
