Have you ever heard of #givingtuesday? It’s a global movement where, on December 2nd, charities, community and companies get together to give back. Coinciding with it this year our friends at Hootsuite are hosting a panel to talk about how Vancouver can build an enduring and inclusive tech ecosystem. Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes will be moderating and panelists include Steve Rio (Briteweb), Steve Anderson (Open Media) and John Bromley (Chimp).
The event kicks off an auction that’ll run from December 2nd til the 16th and the items up for bid are lunches, dinners, and even snowmobiling excursions with leading Vancouver tech CEOs & venture capitalists! Below is a first look at the folks who’ll be up for this auction of which all proceeds will benefit The Next Big Thing‘s CODE CAMPS for kids in schools on the Downtown Eastside. If you’re looking for a super unique holiday gift this year for that person who has everything, this could be your ticket to the best one they’ve ever received.
