Fostering an environment of authentic connection in consciously designed spaces, each element of the Startup and Tech Mixer reflects the best of conferences, pitches, exhibitions, and parties to create a thoughtful and fun experience.

Kalfayan added, “We expect the August 8 event to be the most entertaining and informative Startup and Tech Mixer to date.”
