6/14/12 | NYC Startup Kickoff Mixer at Village Pourhouse

We kicked off our summer mixer series with an event at Village Pourhouse. This was a fun one and met a lot of great people. It was very exciting to see the positive response that we received from the 200+ attendees advocating for more of these types of events. The crowd included students from NYU, Columbia, NYU-Poly, Baruch, Fordham as well as entrepreneurs, startup founders/employees and investors. The idea behind this event was to bring together the business/technology schools in NYC with the startup scene. We especially take pride in the attendees who contacted us after to let us know of the opportunities that came about as a result of being there, some of them even landed jobs! We also heard of a lot of new business ideas exchanged that night. Feedback was that we needed a bigger venue and more facilitation of connections in real-time, we started on working on that right away.

A special thanks to our bartender, Vallery, who kept the drinks flowing all night!

And last but certainly far from least, thank you to our sponsors who made this event that much more fun by being great hosts at their tables:
