Hudson Valley Tech Meetup

Tech Valley Built Here

What happens when four inventive Hudson Valley minds come together?

Explosive innovation.

That’s the momentum behind Hudson Valley Tech Meetup, co-founded in 2014 by Poughkeepsie-based entrepreneurs Dan and Sabrina Schutzsmith, of Digital Empire, and Dan Stone and Kale Kaposhilin, of Evolving Media Network.

Hudson Valley Tech Meetup is a bi-monthly gathering for more than 1,600 diverse and talented professionals, including creatives, coders, engineers, entrepreneurs, educators and students who want to share their passion for creating a thriving tech hub outside of New York City. And it’s working: attracting big names in tech, including founders and talent from Foursquare, IBM, Meetup and more.

The regional network meets every other month in Poughkeepsie and is quickly becoming a networking hotspot hosting collaborative events with Dutchess County businesses, innovators, and inspirational leaders.


A premier business-led organization, Think Dutchess Alliance for Business brings together 10 agency partners creating a one-stop shop for your site selection, financing, incentives, permitting and advocacy, strategic planning and counseling, marketing and networking needs.
