Silicon Alley is looking to grow and ready for funding, if these numbers presented by Forbes are any indication. From plentiful coworking spaces to the most vibrant meetup ecosystem, startups are in good company. So we’d like to cordially invite you to come out and mingle with the startups, investors, mentors, and community leaders who are making things happen in New York City in today’s tech world. Join the community on Tuesday, June 16 from 7 to 9:30 PM at the Center for Social Innovation on W 26th in Chelsea for New York City’s Startup of the Year Competition and Mixer.

During the event, you’ll get the chance to interact with each startup as they demo their product in a casual environment. Ask them questions about their startup journey, their ideas for growth hacking, and their plans to raise funds. You can also meet with other members of your community and chat with the evening’s sponsors: the team from CEA, the company that produces the legendary Consumer Electronics Show, and 43North, looking to award a total of $5 Million in cash to accelerate your business!
If you’ve got a startup in the area and you haven’t applied to demo at this event, you’re going to want to get in on this. If you’re looking for funding, need pitch practice, enjoy telling people about your product, and especially if you want the chance to pitch at a global event for major prizes, including cash, acceptance to a national startup accelerator, or a demo booth at CES, you’ve got to get yourself to this event. The evening’s winners automatically qualify to pitch at the Tech.Co global Startup of the Year Competition.
That’s right: CEA has offered a major prize for a lucky startup that makes it to Celebrate 2015. The Consumer Electronics Startup Prize Package will be awarded to the best Consumer Electronics startup competitor at Celebrate. This prize includes hotel and travel stipend to Las Vegas, floor space at Eureka Park, and 10 CES exhibitor badges!
