Meet the Experts: Hangouts

No man is an island, and perhaps no island has felt more deserted than 2020. If you’re missing your colleagues, stop by a hangout for a loose hangout: no project pitching, no pressure, just a place to connect and hang out. Some hangouts will even feature music, thanks to our partners Polish Docs, others are targeted at specific groups of guests, such as our dear students, sales agents, and buyers. Others have no structure at all, we just want to be together, forever.
