Welcome to TechSwizzle, the Miami social that builds bridges between the tech, art, business, and music communities in Wynwood and beyond. First Friday of every month.

Mixing business with pleasure since 2013.

Text

Last month’s Tech Swizzle was a hit and we want to see the same turn out this month. So save the date for happy hour Friday, October 4th from 6-9pm at the LAB Miami.

Not only is this the best $5 networking event in Miami — beer, music, smart, funny people — but this month we’ll be supporting a worthy project that’s homegrown right at LAB Miami.

Join Sweet Willie Roll Bar and Jen$ who will be spinning some beats that will make you shake a foot! While you’re there, pitch in & support the launch of their Kickstarter campaign called (in)vision by Artistin.us.

They hope to create an interactive art installation to premier at Art Basel 2013. 

And if the great tunes aren’t enough….

A big hooray and welcome to AkermanIN, who have taken up residence at LAB just in time to party at Tech Swizzle. In addition to bringing us the awesome tunes, Akerman’s legal team will be on the ground to mix it up with what they believe is ”the fabric of the grassroots entrepreneurial movement in the United States” according to Andrew Smulian, Akerman Chairman and CEO.

"Disruptive technology and breakthrough business solutions are frequently born from collisions of discovery. We want our lawyers to integrate with an environment that allows these collisions to occur - helping to build a culture of collaborative innovation and continue to disrupt traditional methods of providing legal services." -Andrew Smulian, Akerman Chairman and CEO

We say, “That’s awesome!” Welcome to the party, friends, because entrepreneurs need good partners and good mentors.

See you Friday!

For an event whose stated mission is building bridges between Miami’s various creative and business communities, it’s fitting that our first TechSwizzle will feature the slinky acid-surf spy-fi stylings of Wynwood darlings Gold Dust Lounge.

Each of our events will feature one of Miami’s best local bands from 7-9pm — we want you to have a little sizzle with your Swizzle!

Come on — great company, great music, and a great time for only $5.00! Tickets are limited, so get ‘em now! 

“Led by songwriter and guitarist Russell Mofsky, the group’s sound is a loops- and effects-laced take on jazz, trip-hop, surf, and more contemporary sounds.” Arielle Castillo, New Times, Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

***

“This Trio (Gold Dust Lounge) slinks and swaggers through subgenre favorites such as surf rock, spy-movie soundtracks, and spaghetti western film scores, with a dose of wandering groove to keep the audience feeling loose.” -Matt Preira, New Times Crossfade, April 9, 2012.

Tech Swizzle is about to become your favorite Happy Hour!

Do you go to Meetups to network, but end up leaving before the talks and presentations begin? Then Tech Swizzle is for you!

As our local entrepreneur community grows, so should the opportunities to meet people who will make a difference for your business. Tech Swizzle is more than networking, it is an opportunity to mix business and pleasure.

Tech Swizzle is a Happy Hour networking event bridging the tech, art, design, music and the business communities, which are all interconnected and fuel each other. Investors, programmers, developers, designers, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs and service providers will have the opportunity to freely mingle without an agenda.

We believe when it comes to making connections, sometimes you need you just need to unwind and focus on the networking.

This is the only Happy Hour networking event where you can catch up with friends and colleagues, make new connections and collide in a laid back atmosphere over some cold beer and live music entertainment. 

Each Tech Swizzle event is only $7.50 per person for unlimited drinks, or you can buy a yearly pass (good through December 2013) for just $20 through LAB Miami’s Eventbrite page (insert LAB EB page here).
