Hi NY Tech Mixer Members,
We hope your summers are going well! You may have noticed that several Meetup.com
groups had recently sent out incorrect notifications that their organizers had
changed. This happened to the NY Tech
Mixer a few weeks back, as well as to a few other meetups like the NY Tech
Meetup. We're glad to say that Meetup.com
helped us resolve the issue and our planning committee was added back. Sorry for any confusion, and thanks to all of
our dedicated, concerned members- you guys are great!
With that said, we wanted to take this opportunity to recap
some of the plans for the group that we discussed at our last Demos &
Drinks event in Q2. We’re going to
continue with organizing quarterly Demos & Drinks events, which allow 5
startups to demo to an audience of 500+ attendees. We keep it quarterly because we've learned
from feedback that our members don't necessarily need *more* events, but rather
better quality events that are larger, more social, and feature higher-quality
demos. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll
be announcing details on our Q3 Demos & Drinks event, which we’re excited
about. We've also been planning for a larger tech conference for later this year - stay tuned!
As always, we’re open to ideas for other events that you’d like
to see as well – anyone can suggest event ideas on our site and all are welcome to join our planning committee.
NY Tech Mixer is incorporated as a non-profit, and we’re run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about
helping grow the tech community.
If you’d like to get in touch with us, just send a note to
our group account:
We hope you join us, and see you at the next event!

By the way, if you’re looking for more tech events to fill your
calendar, you should check out Charlie O’Donnell’s weekly newsletter, as well as other meetups
like the NY Tech Meetup, The Hatchery, and NYC Tech Talks.
Those are just a few, and there are many more!
