Lincoln got its start through events, and events remain a vital link in our strategy to engage technologists, explore innovation-fueled and market-based alternatives, and begin developing 21st-century solutions to some of the nation’s most urgent problems. Lincoln’s event strategy consistently draws high-impact individuals, as we deal with some of today’s most pressing issues.
Salon Dinners: Lincoln Network’s intimate salon dinners allows small groups of people to come together for candid conversations on contemporary topics. Salons are often hosted by Lincoln donors and cover a large variety of issues from potential privacy legislation to China and digital authoritarianism.
Reboot/Conference: Large-scale public forums where we explore topics at the forefront of technology and public policy today. Reboot is Lincoln’s premier annual conference that brings together a diverse audience of technologists, policymakers, and tech investors.
Policy Panels: Public events in tech hubs across the country bring together opposing sides on a particular topic. Recent topics for debate include “How Should Conservatives Approach Tech?” and “Platforms v. Protocols and the future of the internet”
Hackathons: An opportunity for Lincoln’s network of technologists to put their skills to use to promote innovation and liberty. In the past, we have hosted hackathons on everything from improving government IT to better ways to support refugees.
