Good to meet you, what do you do?

The Grand Opening of iHive @ NEST, now one of San Diego’s largest CoWork spaces with 16,000 square feet, was celebrated the evening of July 28.

It was a lively, fun night of CoWork space, sliders, sundaes, summer sounds, and speed – networking, that is.

First, the space: It’s a colorful, contemporary array of incubators, shared workspaces, temporary workspaces and co-working spaces.

The delicious sliders were prepared by the food truck InSlider, with sundaes courtesy of Baskin-Robbins.

The sounds of “Summer Strings Open Mic” that filled the Manpower courtyard were provided by an array of top local musicians, all presented by Ken Rexrode Productions.

As for Speed Networking, more than 30 guests got to know each other better – both professionally and personally – in a series of two-minute “chat sessions,” seated at a long table across from each other.

“It was wonderful to get to know so many interesting people who have such innovative ideas,” said CyberTECH member Lorna Ramos, an account executive with NCW Staffing. “I loved it!”

Judging from the many smiles, laughs and freely exchanged business cards, the first-time event was a huge success.

The next Speed Networking event will be held Thursday, Aug. 11, 4:30 to 7:30 pm – iHive @ NEST, 1855 First Avenue, Suite 103, San Diego, CA 92101.

All CyberTECH members, prospective members and guests are always welcome!

The future of San Diego’s CoWork Space has arrived

You’re invited to join CyberTECH members and special guests for the official Grand Opening of iHive at NEST, Thursday, July 28.

Covering more than 16,000 square feet, iHive at NEST reflects San Diego’s fast-growing leadership role in the hi-tech and cybersecurity sectors. The space is fully leased with 47 resident members.

That total is expected to grow to 80 companies by mid-2017. What’s more, for every resident member, iHive also supports an additional four non-resident members through its Community Social Incubation model.
