Data Driven NYC (organized by FirstMark), is a community of tech enthusiasts who are passionate about Big Data, data technologies and data-driven products and businesses, in New York and beyond. The community meets monthly at three hour events that include both company presentations and informal networking.
The monthly events focus on the business aspects of the data revolution: startup opportunities, new products, business models, funding trends, emerging players, and ways for existing startups to leverage their data. Technical aspects will also occasionally be discussed, but attendees do not need to have a technical background. While hosted at Bloomberg LP's beautiful offices and sponsored by FirstMark Capital, Data Driven NYC is an independent forum and is open to anyone with a genuine interest in the topic.
