The New Marketplaces, Science & Tech For A Better Internet meetup invites scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, software coders, designers, activists and financiers to discuss and explore how new online marketplaces, business models & infrastructures can create more interaction and innovation on the Web.
We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at some of NYC's most cutting-edge tech company offices.
Where does the network end and where does the marketplace begin? Which role play software tools and big data? RoR versus Python? How can you create eyeballs and prevent users from gaming the system? Are you interested in the latest cutting-edge stuff from MIT Media Lab and Santa Fe Institute? How and where and why should you raise funding? In what marketplaces & tech should I invest? What might Peter Thiel and Fred Wilson think about this and that? What are the business models and technologies of firms such as kickstarter, innocentive, pivotal tracker, quid, bit.ly, meetup or mandalay? If you answered at least one of the above with yes, welcome, this is your meetup!
Swing by if you have an idea for a start-up or are already running a firm in this space, if you work on a related technology, if you use new marketplaces and infrastructures yourself, if you are a financier... Join a high-quality community of New Yorkers (sometimes joined by visitors from The Bay Area and Cambridge) exploring and creating the future of trading and interaction on the WWW.
