    Hi all! First off, apologies to anyone who came to the venue to be turned away due to capacity issues. This was the first time we had such a large turn out and we are now intimately familiar with the fire codes and maximum capacity. We'll set expectations for our next one.

    If you couldn't make it to this one due to being on the wait list or being turned away at the gate, don't worry -- we'll be back in August, next month, for NYC TechBreakfast, and our Ask a VC panel will also be back in October! So, RSVP for our next one and we'll manage our numbers and cap so that we don't hit capacity issues. See you there!
