About Startup Tour

Are you an entrepreneur, freelancer or student interested in learning more about the tech & startup scene in NYC?  

Great!  But where do you start?

Join us on our inaugural Startup Tour NYC on Monday, April 25th as we formally introduce you to the NYC tech scene and startup ecosystem.  You will connect with fellow startups & technologists, meet “movers and shakers” in the NYC community, explore different resources and networks that can help your business or career and listen to great leaders in the space talk about their experiences building their ventures in New York.  As a bonus, you’ll also meet & interact with members of the Philadelphia startup community visiting NYC that same day.

The tour listed below was an actual event offered in April 2016. All tours provide similar content, programming and opportunities to those found from our 2016 retail and student Startup Tour program. Our goal is to help each attendee learn how to navigate and work with NYC startup & business community now and in the future.
