There's more than just big enterprise in the Big Apple. The New York City startup scene has seen a boom in recent years, making its case as a viable alternative to The Valley for those who want to grow their tech startup in EST. That's why Tech Cocktail is thrilled to be bringing the Mixer parade back to The City That Never Sleeps.
On May 2nd, Tech Cocktail is headed to Projective Space in NYC for an evening of startups, local tech enthusiasts, and great conversation- served over cocktails, of course.
We'll have a dozen up-and-coming startups on hand showcasing their goods, but before the Mixer kicks off, we want to know what you think – who is NYC's Hottest Showcasing Startup?
Let us know your thoughts by answering the poll at the end of this post (ends at 6:00pm local time on the day of the event). The winner will be announced live at the event and will receive a couple of minutes on stage to pitch their startup in front of all attendees. The winner will also receive inclusion in a top secret, year-end event (get excited). Don't miss out.
