Community

Bringing people and ideas together under one roof.

Enabling the power of inspiration, collaboration, and contagious ah-ha moments.


Building community among technologists, creators, movers, and doers; It’s our passion.

Entrepreneurship thrives when based on collaboration and social responsibility.

LEE DECKER
FOUNDER OF OC TECH HAPPY HOUR


What if you wanted to connect with like-minded people to have an exchange around your business ideas? And what if you desired a great conversation that surfaced multiple points of view to arrive at the best way to obtain funding or launch your product? Or you just wanted to learn about what and how others in the “Community” where approaching tech innovation?

In the absence of such a forum, we launched our first tech meet-up group, OC Tech Happy Hour, at the beginning of July 2014. Since that time the group has grown to 5,440+ members and continues as the fastest growing tech group in OC – soon to be the largest. OC Tech Happy Hour conducts monthly meet-ups at UC Irvine and local area restaurants where people learn about the latest companies and trends in technology, while making new contacts and enjoying a collaborative atmosphere.

With the success of OC Tech Happy Hour, additional meet-up groups have mobilized and been established in Laguna and San Diego, California. Each of our groups are closely affiliated will LA Tech Happy Hour, who has a membership of over 8,000+ people. These Communities help to support numerous companies, entrepreneurs, and people that have innovative dreams – all striving to advance opportunities for business and others throughout Southern California.
