We have a January Demo and Drinks Night in planning stages and are looking for presenters. Those interested can complete this form to let us know.

For most of us here in the US, yesterday was not just about the dancers in the Macy’s
Thanksgiving Day Parade, or pets in the Purina Dog Show, but about Football. As I

Happy Thanksgiving.
Don’t forget to check out the #TechStartupJobs Fair New York here.

Enjoy Your weekend!

Best, Francesca
