    NY Angels designed a well thought-out, well executed agenda. Terrific hosts and speakers. Bringing speakers who have completed accelerator programs throughout the country, really went the extra mile. Very knowledgable, accessible group. Hosts challenged the panelists to high quality results. Thank you. They weren't missed is that the program seemed quite full, but 2 accelerators failing to appear was outrageous! For me, this is part and parcel of the arrogance and disfunction which young people should know is part of the accelerator ecosphere, in some places. Truth came out in dribs and drabs, bolder free speaking remained in the wings imho.
