After a year of virtual events, Tech Hub South Florida started the year off right with some safe, outdoor fun at their annual member-exclusive Tee Off event ⛳ hosted at Drive Shack West Palm Beach. Expectations ran high after many months without in-person events and we could not be happier with the way things turned out.

To kick the evening off we heard from Nikki Cabus, VP of Development, welcome the members and talking about the recent rebrand.  Joe Russo, President & CEO, recapped the accomplishments made and growth achieved to date. 


Premier Virtual was honored to have the ability to sponsor the annual Tee Off. Being able to give back to an organization that has supported our firm since day one was something we always talk about. Even though we are a virtual company, we understand that social interaction is vital. The event itself was a needed escape for many people out there with all that is going on. Tech Hub South Florida is a great organization and helps bring the tech community together with their weekly and monthly events. There is something for all types of members…from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, THSF has a place for you…the person looking for work to the executive looking to network” said Steven Edwards, Presenting Sponsor and Managing Partner at Premier Virtual, as he took a moment to express his gratitude. 


For some, this was the first in person event since the shutdown; in fact many had not attended any in-person events since last year’s Tee Off. Nobody took the afternoon for granted, seizing the opportunity to network with new associates and to meet virtual connections for the first time in person. Attendees were encouraged to invite somebody they didn’t know to a round of golf; college students were frequently seen teeing off with CEOs.

South Florida’s newest coding school, Boca Code, brought their Software Engineering Career Course cohort to network and potentially meet their future employers. Shane Vander Kooi, President and Founder of Green Mouse Academy and one of the event’s supporting sponsors, had this to say about the afternoon: “We were really happy to support the Tee Off event not only to hear about the incredible impact that Tech Hub South Florida is making, but to also join with you in safely restarting these community building, face to face interactions, that are so rewarding at a personal and professional level.  Being able to share the exciting news about the launch of HADO Florida was an added benefit! Thank you for all you do!”


We are looking forward to having more events like this in the new year to continue fostering community growth and relationship building, furthering our core value to create diverse and inclusive spaces for all levels in the tech world. Tony Gruebl, event sponsor and President at Think, a local technology and operations consulting firm, expressed it perfectly, “Tech Hub South Florida is bringing the community together in new and exciting ways, and we are thrilled to support that effort any way that we can. Where else can you find a diverse community of software, engineering, digital, and information technology professionals from various verticals to connect, share, and innovate with. Tech Hub South Florida is building something phenomenal.” Tony also gave away his book, The Red Pill Executive, to all those in attendance. 


Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Premiere Virtual,  and Supporting Sponsors, Modis, Green Mouse Academy and Think Systems  who made this night of good food and great company possible.
