Boom...Goes the Dynamite! (NY Tech Ping Pong Meetup Reminder)

A former member
Hi NYTPPongers,

We are all set for tomorrow's NY Tech Ping Pong Meetup and excitingly, we have 100+ people signed-up to participate.

To recap, we will be meeting at Slate Plus (54 West 21st St., near 6th ave) and getting started with friendly play at 7pm. We've secured happy hour drink specials for the group until 8pm, so feel free to come out and be social with our growing community tech-pong-ologists.


The organizing team wants to ensure that we are building a curated experience for our community. We have tossed around several ideas to keep our group a balanced hybrid between Technology and Ping Pong.

One idea that is trending "upwards and to the right" includes having two local tech companies that operate in the same space (i.e., GetGlue and Into_Now) come out and talk a little bit about their company (similarities and differences) and then battle it out over a friendly game of ping pong. We are calling this Versus.

Two Benefits of Versus:

1 - Versus would provide a direct line for tech companies to speak directly to the NY tech community in a friendly, social atmosphere and learn more about their competition without taking things too seriously.

2 - Versus would be a great way for growing companies to find technical talent and for technical talent to find growing companies. Win/Win.

Nevertheless, this is one idea out of many that we have. If you feel so inclined, please send over your own creative idea(s) to how we can do better as a group and keep our members engaged. If you don't have time to craft an email, feel free to come out early to Slate at 6:30pm tomorrow and we can chat directly.

I hope to see you soon!

p.s. We have a growing waiting list for tomorrow's event. If you can no longer make it, please change your RSVP status so others can participate.
