New York Silicon Alley Weekly Newsletter 7 February 2014

Happy Friday!

As an old friend of mine used to say “Change, Americans!”

We are announcing a date change for our TechStartupJobs Fair: April 15th.

This way nobody has to worry about still being away if they took off for Easter break

…or limiting their time at the NY Tech Day festivities

…or missing their Art Gallery-hopping Thursdays in Chelsea.

We know how much these activities all mean to you, so we’ll see you on the 15th instead.

Also, if you’re hiring and can make it April 15, we still have open employer tickets for our Jobs Fair.

Sooner than that, our Startup Workshop, is March 4th.

We have two new mentors to announce:

Taewoo Kim: “The Growth Hacker” @TaeWooKim

Thanos Matzanas: “The Recruiter” @Matzi3

If you would make a great mentor for this event or know someone who would, please apply here.

The ‘100 minds’ portion of the evening is an open pitch opportunity apply here.

Lastly, we are starting our “5 minutes with…” series next week which will feature one startup weekly. Tell us why your startup is great and you could be our weekly feature!

If you haven’t yet, join us on facebook and twitter !

Until next week! Francesca
