We are a loosely organized collection of technologists, entrepreneurs, designers, and everything in between centered around Savannah, GA. We all have crazy startup jobs, but are trying to organize our tech/startup community into something that feels and acts like an actual community and not just a bunch of individuals.

We’re always looking for good trouble to get in, so if you have ideas on things we should be involved in, let us know!
