DemoDays: Startup Week Grand Finale
October 6th, doors open at 4:30pm and show starts at 5:00pm
It's been some months since you've seen us, but DemoDays is back and bigger than ever to wrap up Tech@NYU's 2012 Fall Startup Week. In case you're new around these parts, here's how it works:
- Students present their projects
- Handful of 2-minute demos
- A few 5-minute demos
- Guest speaker rocks the house
- Hang out and eat pizza
This DemoDays will be held at the TechStars Office in Cooper Square. It's only the hottest tech incubator on the planet, NBD.
I had a nightmare one time where I needed to buy some concert tickets and I got caught in an infinite loop of loading screens and reCAPTCHA's and getting scammed on Craigslist. Well recently, I think New York's very own SeatGeek heard my cries and came down from the heavens with some of the coolest innovation in online tech since Twilio. It's like I'm running NASA's central control board of event ticketing.
We're thrilled to welcome their head of research and development, Steve Ritter, to talk about some of the challenges they took on and maybe show off some math. Get psyched.
We know you can't always attend every DemoDays, here's some of the work students have shown in the past:

Every semester, Tech@NYU hosts Startup Week, a week-long series of events, kicked off by the HackNY Hackathon and ending with a bang with DemoDays. This fall, we are partnering up with NYU Poly's EIA, NYU EEX and Parsons to further expose NYC students to the larger tech community in the city.
This semester's theme is "Hacking as a Mentality." Not just in the coding sense though - hacking is the process by which one uses skill, experience, and alternative thinking to leverage a situation for some benefit or value.
NYC is rapidly turning into a "hacking capital" with a recent massive growth in tech startups and venture capital. Understanding how one can learn to be a "hacker," applying those "hacking" skills, and succeeding are very powerful notions to be explored during NYU Startup Week. We are all looking forward to your presence - NYU Startup Week will be an amazing opportunity to learn from the best, meet others who share similar passions, and push you to translate that into action!
See you there
