New York’s Venture Emergence: The Agenda

1/10/12Follow @arleneweintraub

The startup scene in New York is red hot, with a plethora of financings in e-commerce, ad technology, and yes, sometimes even biotechnology. The innovators in these cutting-edge industries are helping drive New York commerce in new directions—a major priority of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is on a mission to diversify the city’s economy.

It is in this exciting environment that Xconomy presents its first big NYC event, New York’s Venture Emergence, coming up on February 1 at the Apella Event Space at Alexandria Center.

Today we’re announcing the official agenda for the event. We’ve assembled a first-class lineup of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and executives to share the stories of their New York startup successes.

The event will feature a keynote chat on the future of venture capital in New York with Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures and Todd Dagres of Spark Capital. The startup teams from bitly, Gilt, and Armgo will share their experiences.

There will be plenty of time for networking during the half-day event. And we’ll have demos from three of the newest members of the New York startup community: HackNY, Gotham Greens, and BarkBox.

Our special early-bird pricing is set to end tomorrow, so get your tickets today. And check out our special ticket prices for students and startups. Please join us for this stimulating afternoon with some of New York’s major innovators.
