Xconomy held a great party last Thursday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The only caveats from our fantastic host NYSE Euronext was that if I rang the bell, the symbol XCON would never trade…(well, they didn’t actually say that, but I felt the hint was there).
So we didn’t ring any bells, and we don’t have any plans to go public anytime soon—but you can tell from the photo (click on it for a full-sized view) I had a good time anyway. So did our guests, we hope. And we’d like to thank NYSE Euronext and all the underwriters, venture and investment banking members, sponsors, and partners who made our first event in New York so memorable.
Our event sponsors for the evening, in addition to NYSE Euronext, were Halloran Consulting Group, IDA Ireland, and Sorin Royer Cooper. Thanks so much to all of you!
Our New York underwriters are not to be forgotten either—they made our first two months in the Big Apple so successful. Thanks to Alexandria Real Estate Equities; Goodwin Procter; NYSE Euronext; Sorin Royer Cooper; SRI International; and WilmerHale.
The same holds true for our venture members—Avalon Ventures; Boston Millennia Partners; Dogpatch Labs; and Penny Black—as well as our investment banking member Progress Partners and our partner the New York Academy of Sciences. Thanks to one and all.
Finally, thanks to our guests for perhaps delaying their Memorial Day weekend plans just a bit to come on down to Wall Street for the event. See you soon!
