One of the many things we look forward to at the Rails Machine office are events in Savannah that bring some awareness to the local tech scene and it just happens that two such events are happening this month, Tech Crunch Mini Meetup and the Downtown Tech Crawl.
July 6th–11th, Tech Crunch, is doing a tour of tech companies in the Southeast, blogging about it along the way, and Savannah is their first stop of the tour this year. From there they’ll hit Atlanta and then right up to the coast until they reach Charlotte, NC. The Creative Coast is lending their great space, we’re going to be supplying the drinks, and the food will be supplied by the farm to fork liaison, Revival Foods, so we hope for a spirited evening of spreading the good word about what Savannah has to offer the tech world.
“The goal here is networking and connecting with the exciting projects happening in your cities. These mini-meetups are a great way to get noticed and to chat about what you’re working on and, in addition, get some advice on next steps.”
Tech Crunch Mini Meetup
Friday, July 6th

15 W. York St.
6pm – 10pm
Downtown Tech Crawl
July 17th, Made in Savannah, is putting together the first Downtown Tech Crawl to give curious Savannah residents a chance to peer into the local tech scene, via trolley rides no less. We’re the last stop of the tour before the closing party starts at Thinc and we’re excited to be a part of the event. The variety of companies participating in the inaugural crawl presents a great way for someone wanting to get a bird’s eye view of what Savannah’s creative companies are all about. If you’re thinking about planning a trip to this haunted city, this would be a great way to start your trip. You can reserve a free spot on the trolley via EventBright. Oh, I didn’t mention that the whole crawl if free of charge? Free food, drinks, and transportation, how cool is that!? We hope to see you there.
“Hop on an Old Savannah Tours and get an inside look into the growing technology community in downtown Savannah. Established Start-up Savannah Technology companies and start-up ventures will open their workspaces and give a quick show and tell of their product and team. Curious Savannahians will be able to check out their digs, hear about their products and meet the people leading the technology movement in Savannah.”
