We Are Wearables (WWTO) is the largest wearable tech community in Canada that was founded by Tom Emrich–INcubes Mentor, Canadian tech writer, and consultant—back in January, 2014 in Toronto. “I founded We Are Wearables, a community that rallies people together to learn, discuss and celebrate wearable tech in order to foster adoption and facilitate innovation in this space,” Says Tom. The Toronto based group has over 1,800 members on Meetup.com, with around 350 people attending the monthly events.
This week, Tom brought We Are Wearables to our partners at 1871 in Chicago, and it was a huge success! It was the first We Are Wearables meetup outside of Toronto, surely with many more to come. Read the full story on Chicago Tribune.
