About Us

Mission

To establish and grow a large, local, high technology business community with the purpose of conducting commerce together while enhancing our local community.

Purpose

To connect high technology businesses in the greater Las Vegas Metro area to conduct commerce, create partnerships, foster alliances, enable business education and establish an advanced business network in the Las Vegas Metro community.

History

HiTech Vegas was founded by three individuals with extensive backgrounds in the high technology business sector. The initial idea came out of a casual business meeting at a local coffee shop. We unanimously agreed that there are a lot of established high tech businesses in Las Vegas that seem to be operating as “islands” conducting nation-wide or global commerce that do not even do business or network with each other. HiTech Vegas was formed, aimed at connecting the high technology businesses that co-exist in the greater Las Vegas Metro area into a powerful community, to come together and meet regularly to better network, partner, and conduct business together, while enhancing our local community
