PubHub is a free monthly event series put on by the Casco Bay Technology Hub for the public.
Each month up to 100 of Portland’s business, tech, and entrepreneurship focused professionals attend PubHub to learn, share ideas, and grow together. The events feature a speaker with real-world business expertise who share their experiences and insight on technology and how it relates to business development, growth, and entrepreneurship.
January’s PubHub event is TBA. Stay tuned right here and sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to hear about the upcoming event. Thanks to everyone who came out in December. Read the event recap below.
For December’s PubHub event, we had the privilege of hearing from Kerem Durdag on… The Quest for the Holy Grail: Why Monty Python Was Right. Kerem is always thinking outside of the box, and at our event he creatively shared with us about the existential struggle of why we do startups, why it is necessary and how to keep sane in the sea of insanity. Having served on numerous executive teams, boards of directors (such as MCED), and having started a number of organizations himself, Mr. Durdag is a prominent presence in Maine’s tech and startup scene. We couldn’t have been happier to have him share a piece of his brilliant mind with us. If you don’t know Kerem and want to find out more, check out one of his TEDx talks on YouTube and check out his current startup, Biovation.
Like always, December’s event featured free admission, drinks thanks to Baxter Brewing and snacks thanks to our premier sponsor, New England Tech Project. We also worked with New England Tech Project to distribute their Maine specific survey that they are partnering to complete with Northeastern University. New England Tech Project is here to help our tech community in Maine and all of New England, so do not hesitate to contact them and chat about how they can help your company and our tech community.
Are you a startup founder, professional or entrepreneur based in Maine? Please take NETP’s survey!
The New England Tech Project works to support the region’s tech, startup and innovation economy by advocating for public policies that make each NE state the healthiest it can be for that community. Most recently, NETP has partnered with Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy to commission a white paper identifying local and state policies to spur and support the region’s startup and innovation ecosystem. Your answers will help shape NETP’s policy recommendations and regional overview for Maine. Survey here: http://bit.ly/1c7eggO
