Powderkeg is the place to plug into tech in the center of the country.
Our community mindset is what sets us apart. We believe in the power of people and network, which is why we empower connection. Here’s how we do that:
Events | Meet up with the best and brightest. Targeted events to give tech leaders opportunities to learn, cross paths, and connect in-person.
Digital media | Access the digital resource hub for tech leaders outside the Valley. Relevant, curated digital resources and tools to support leaders like you.
Matches | Match community vetted talent with top tech teams. Our job-matching platform leverages thousands of participants, employers, and teams within our ecosystem to address the biggest pain point for our community: talent.
Our Core Values
- Create Magic. Ignite your creativity and be remarkable. Always aim to exceed expectations.
- Trust Yourself. Share your best self and some of your weirdness. Trust that you know how to learn: you know how to find answers, try something and see if it works, iterate, repeat…
- Embrace Diversity. Be creative, compassionate, and inclusive. Explore more. The best solutions come from diverse inputs.
- Nurture Relationships. Connections don’t matter unless you continue the relationships. Shared experiences advance relationships.
- Practice Mindfulness. Be mindful, positive, and intentional. Create better connections, listen, be aware. Balance. Stay connected with yourself and your work.
- Own It. Hold yourself accountable and have the courage to be vulnerable. Show up and let yourself be seen.
- Play Big. When you give yourself fully, you receive fully, so spend your time on this planet focusing on things that can make the biggest impact.
