New York is a destination city, especially for startups. Each month, Brian Frumberg hosts Venture Out featuring startups from one country or other (Brazil, Britain, France, Italy, Israel, Amsterdam, etc) and brings them to our fair city, where they present to a panel of investors, who offer their feedback. It’s always interesting to see what entrepreneurs from other parts of the world are up to, n’est pas? After all, the Next Big Thing can come from anywhere. $20
Global Innovators is another monthly event that hosts startups from all over the world that come in to pitch to a panel of VCs who offer feedback. A reporter from one of the large news media entities usually moderates – and the networking is always amazing. The event draws a veritable who’s who of NY’s tech and venture community – investors, corporate executives and relevant partners. The food is always good, too, but you’re more tempted to mix and mingle.
