2010 has been a year of firsts for Tech Cocktail. One of those was hosting our first event in New York City. We partnered up with our friends at TechStars, who brought lots of out-of-town friends to the event. Special thanks to Digital Somethings and Girls in Tech who also helped ensure a great crowd. The response to our call for featured startups to demo was amazing – it was tough to narrow it down to 14 startups!
The following early-stage companies came to show off their stuff:
- Artsicle – an e-commerce site to sell high-end, original art & build interactive communities between artists and collectors.

Hosted at Bar13, we had two floors full of startups and conversation. Sprint was also in the house and our friendly Sprint rep Rich gave out a 4G phone at the event. Whether you were able to attend or not, enjoy these photos taken by local photographer Kelly Samardak.
