Events Intern

Each week The Next Web team interview some of the most innovative early-stage startups from all over the world, in preparation for our Boost program co-hosted by Braintree at TNW Conference in New York.

We’ve received many hundreds of applications, but our conference floor will host just 100 of the best startups – and 80 of those spots are already full. For the third edition of TNW USA, 1500 people will join us from over 25 countries to enjoy the conference, TNW-style.

Aside from the awesome keynote content and workshops on offer, our attendees will come to explore the innovation being offered by our early-stage startups on our business floor. Take a look at five of these startups from the East Coast that you can meet this November:
