SMASH Alumni Summit 2018

THE FUTURE IS SMASH.  THE FUTURE IS US.

We’re bringing the SMASH community together to reconnect, engage and grow at the first-ever Alumni Summit!
Come out and reunite with old friends, expand your professional networks, learn the latest in career development in STEM and beyond, and hear from inspiring leaders in tech and entrepreneurship, including some from our very own alumni community.
The SMASH community we’ve built over the last 14 years is more important now than ever before. Let’s build the future we want to see together.
