ND Tech Forum
The Notre Dame Technology Forum is hosted periodically by the ND Founders Club and Amy Guarino, an alum active in tech business. Tech Forums are attended by University Notre Dame alumni active in the tech and biotech industries in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
The primary goal of the ND Tech Forum is to create and foster a community of professional sharing among Notre Dame alums and friends of Notre Dame. We host evening events throughout the year that focus on relevant topics of interest to the tech community.
2020 Tech Forums will be held virtually, via Zoom, making them available to all in the Notre Dame community.
