48in48 New York City 2016 in photos

Jeff Hilimire

We pulled off 48in48 in a city outside of Atlanta. That showed us that our mission is not just something our friends care about, but the broader community embraces it as well. I thought I’d do the same for the New York event. We did it!

What are the best New York City events to attend to meet VC’s and Angel investors?

Gust

Although there are many, many excellent events each week in New York that it would make sense for a startup entrepreneur to attend (see Gary’s Guide, Startup Digest, or This Week in NY Innovation), the truth is that (a) VCs and serious investors don’t go to most of them, and (b) the odds are slim that even if you and the investor were at the same event, you will have the opportunity or time to do more than say hello. The New York Angels Education Meetup.

What are the advantages of stationing your startup in New York City opposed to Silicon Valley / SF?

Gust

A much more tightly knit startup community, compared to the larger but more diffuse West Coast community. A city that from the Mayor on down is devoted to helping the tech startup community expand exponentially. The world’s fastest growing tech startup ecosystem. Access to many, many more world market centers (advertising, finance, fashion, media, food, etc.).

How the New York City innovation community can still lose (and what you can do about it)

This is going to be BIG.

I remember hearing that a New York City venture fund was raising money in 2004 and almost skipping the meeting, because New York wasn’t a viable place to deploy that much capital—it was a small blip in the past. I've heard that most new angels make 70% of their lifetime investments within the first year of starting to invest--i.e. There isn’t a single person in the NYC that is more excited than I am about how far we’ve come.

Two Days of Entrepreneurial Community Building In Upstate New York

Feld Thoughts

On Wednesday and Thursday I spent two awesome days with my long time friend Martin Babinec (the founder of Trinet), his partner at Upstate Venture Connect – Nasir Ali – and about 1000 members of the Upstate New York entrepreneurial community. Since Upstate New York had gotten so much snow so far this year, everyone was freaked out and all of the events on Wednesday were turned into conference calls that I was going to do from Martin’s house.

Innovating in New York City

OnlyOnce

Innovating in New York City Last week I wrote about speaking at the NYC Lean Startup Meetup. One of my other key takeaways from this, which I've known for a while and have been meaning to blog about, is just how vibrant the tech startup community is here in New York. Like most things, New York City is such a massive and diverse place that it's easy to "get lost in the crowd," and there's a lot going on.

Bringing Depression Out of The Shadows In Startups

Feld Thoughts

I was in New York City after a red-eye from San Francisco, landing at 6 a.m. Most recently, things started with a 50-mile race I did in April 2012 that I never physiologically recovered from, followed by a near-death bike accident in September 2012, a very intense stretch of work which included writing two books in the midst of everything — “Startup Communities” and “Startup Life” — the death of my dog, and ultimately a kidney stone that required surgery.
