Kingpins of Silicon Alley: meeting entrepreneurial luminaries and supporting entrepreneurship in New York City
If you’re an entrepreneur or VC in New York, clear off Monday, April 15, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM.
I’ve written before about InSITE, the entrepreneurship group I started working with at Columbia Business School, and a friend there winning a competition with a business to reduce pollution.
If you didn’t know, InSITE brings together graduate students at various schools around NYC (mainly from Columbia’s and NYU’s business, law, engineering, computer science, design and PhD and post doctorate programs in natural sciences and medicine) for a two-year program designed to engage these talented people in the NYC startup community. It recently expanded to Harvard and Stanford too, but it’s still strongest here in New York. I learned a lot working with the group as a student, consultant, and entrepreneur and I think I helped a few business grow.
InSITE is doing a networking and fun fundraising event that Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures (if you know entrepreneurship in New York City, you know him. His old firm, Flatiron Partners, gave my company, Submedia, a serious look in the late 90s) just posted about since he’ll be there and is already supporting it.
So if you want to make yourself or company known or meet other luminaries and successful people, here’s a great opportunity to interact with important people in this community in a casual environment. Did I mention the event is a bowling night at Bowlmor Lanes near Union Square?
Come to think of it, last week I ran into one of the guys I consulted for with InSITE in 2005 or 2006 — one of the co-founders of Flavorpill, which has been doing amazingly since then. That’s the caliber of people and company InSITE works with and the type of community it forms. Another reason to participate!
