The mission of Meetup is as big as it gets: Have a Meetup Everywhere, about Everything.
With over 32 million members in over 180 countries, Meetups members build networking groups & communities based on shared passions that range from figure drawing to robotics to marathon training. At any given time, there are 6,000 meetups happening, & out of the 280,000 registered Meetup groups, 30,000+ groups are dedicated to technology.
As CTO, Yvette Pasqua heads the engineering team. She joined Meetup in 2015 to bring her passion for continuous learning & data-driven product development to the influential platform. Prior to joining Meetup, Yvette held leadership roles at startups & agencies, including helping to build the popular dating app, Grindr.

They will touch on Meetups unique approach to product development (including its famous hackathons), the companys approach to accessibility, & the role of community in strengthening individuals & cities for the better.
