Disruptive Technologists in NYC Meetup

(Scroll down to the bottom for info on next Meetup Event)

Collaborating with AT&T Adworks and NY Institute of Technology on the Upper West Side we hold meetups to celebrate, support, enlighten and advise each other on game-changing new products, wacky ideas, wildly entrepreneurial visions and then getting them to fruition. This will be a major mentoring group for people interested in succeeding in their ideas with exceedingly wise, inspirational and funny speakers and presenters.


All of our events are held at NY Institute of Technology: 16 West 63rd Street and AT&T AdWorks: 810 7th Ave, New York, NY. We are signing up people for our 4th event now! Only 70 people can attend, we would love to have students come – especially you in the entrepreneurial studies, graduate studies and technologists in a broad range of fields – bio, fashion, technology, science, health.

If you sign up and there is any change in your schedule, please let us know ahead of time that you can’t make it, so we can let others on the waiting list have your seat.

To learn more, go to DisruptiveTechnologists.com and sign up for the monthly newsletter.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
