Anyone that’s found themselves eying New York’s tech scene is bound to have heard of NY Tech Meetup, the massive monthly gathering that comes together to watch approximately 10 companies demo their work to the tech community for 3-5 minutes each. Every month a slim 850 seats are available for the meetup’s more than 25,000 members at NYU’s Skirball auditorium, and so once the tickets go live, they sell out almost instantly.
In case you didn’t grab a ticket this month, or are geographically-challenged, TNW has a list of the 10 startups demoing at tomorrow’s event so you can see what you’re missing. Keep in mind that some of these companies are just starting out and may have announcements planned, while others have already made a name for themselves in the industry (aka Twilio).
Have you visited TNW's hype-free blockchain and cryptocurrency news site yet?
