Hi All,

I hope that everyone had a great summer. Mine has definitely been fun, if busier than expected. Get excited because NY-App-Meetup will be reforming this fall with renewed focus and some new tricks up it's sleeve.

But until then, I wanted to let y'all know about this event called startup weekend that will be taking place this weekend. Startup weekend is a hackathon where people get together to start businesses. It's very cool and I highly suggest that you check it out, ESPECIALLY if you are trying to build your team. Details below.

As always feel free to reach out and let me know if I can help.

Best,
Brett



Startup Weekend is back for its 4th event in NYC! On the weekend of September 10th, get together with local developers, marketers, designers, and aspiring entrepreneurs to pitch ideas, form teams and launch new business ventures over the weekend. Sound intense? It is! By Sunday evening you'll leave with a full stomach, little sleep, a lot of great networking, and you?ll have seen the rise of a few new startups.
Our venue is New Work City's new location at 412 Broadway - and it's gonna kick ass. Who knows - they might even give away some free office space
As a result of the awesome buzz from the last event, we have a top-notch panel of investors coming out on Sunday to view the final pitches
Mark Davis, Dwight Merriman and Jeremy Mims are just three of our awesome Friday-night speakers
Women will not be under-represented at this event: Girls In Tech is sending a bunch of female developers out to participate
Attendees will receive giveaways and prizes to include free coworking space, an incorporation/formation package from Cooley LLP, free passes to Web 2.0 Expo, free hosting, one-on-one-time with some of our panelists and discount codes from our national sponsors Twilio, oDesk and Media Temple
Tickets ($75) get you food for the entire weekend. Sign up at http://nycsw4.eventbrite.com or get more info at http://nyc.startupweekend.org. We have about 30 tickets left as of 2:00 PM today. Send your questions to [address removed].

What do Attendees get from a Startup Weekend?:
Startup Weekend provides an unprecedented level of networking, team building, learning, and life changes for its attendees and their communities. Don't forget that there will be 5-6 meals and drinks provided. There is a reason that most attendees come back for every event; it's just plain fun and provides amazing opportunities you can't get anywhere else. Sometimes a company emerges, sometimes one doesn't, but every time people leave with more experience, insight, knowledge, friends, and resources than they came with.
