Tech After Five @ Edmund's Oast Brewing Co.
Jul 23 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

In every city, every month Tech After Five connects the tech community. We invite IT Professionals, Startups, Entrepreneurs and Service Providers to the IT Community to come together and make meaningful professional connections.

The first Tech After Five was in Greenville, SC on February 20, 2008. Now, 11 years later, we’ve have hosted 500 events where we bring the IT community together within cities between cities. We are a community of communities.

You may be looking for work or looking to hire. You might be looking for customers or prospects. You may need co-founders, partners or mentors. We’ve got you covered.

Tech After Five is not like other networking events. We work particularly hard to make sure we get the right people in the room and then make sure it’s easy for you to find each other. Sign up using the right ticket type for you. We will then follow up with custom emails that let you know who you can expect to meet. We will print custom badges for the event that make it easy for you to find the people you are looking for.

We know that networking can be hard. We try to make it as easy as possible for you to meet the right people. We know that when smart people come together we can make things happen. We hope you will join us and become part of our community.

By the way, have you checked out the Tech After Five podcast? We’ve got ideas you can use at our events as well as introductions to important people and ideas. Check out the “Tech After Five Podcast” on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts, Anchor FM and more!

1 Million Cups: Entrepreneurs @ The School House
Jul 24 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a chapter of the Kauffman Organization that created a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Their weekly “caffeinated” events offer local entrepreneurs valuable exposure and feedback on their startups in a supportive environment.

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday the program offers one or two entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, investors,  entrepreneurs, the public, you name it! Presenters prepare a six-minute educational presentation and engage in twenty minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that cares about their progress and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to network in Charleston, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones. Coffee is provided each week and all events are free to attend and open to the public. To check out who’s up next to present, visit www.1millioncups.com/charleston.

We hope you can make it! If you are interested in presenting your startup at one of the 1MC events, click here.
