Our next meetup will feature founders of MyCityWay / NYCWay (http://www.mycityway.com/) to tell their founder stories and share their learnings in building their product and company.
MyCityWay is a real time app designed to transform your hand held device into a mega-utility tool for navigating the urban scene. By combining urban reference apps and platforms with vital urban information, MyCityWay helps you pilot and explore the world's cities like never before. Use MyCityWay to find a Chinese restaurant in your neighborhood, locate the nearest wireless hotspot, or buy tickets for the next showing of a blockbuster movie. Connect with other users to find the perfect lunch spot, keep tabs on apartments for rent, or check live traffic feeds before leaving your home or office.
They're the grand winner of the first NYC BigApps competition, covered by New York Times, Mashable, Forbes, WSJ, Techcrunch, and won AppyAwards for best Travel Apps 2012.
Sonpreet Bhatia has a passion for Internet entrepreneurism and is an expert in the field of technology, IT and mobile apps. As a long time seasoned New Yorker, Sonpreet is always trying to keep a pulse on the coolest happenings around town from hot concerts to the latest movies to the newest restaurants. Thanks to a stroke of inspiration at a Manhattan coffee shop, Sonpreet and her business partners took their love of urban living to a whole new level when they came up with the idea for MyCityWay. Now Sonpreet only has to pull out her iPhone to get the best of the city right at her fingertips! Before founding MyCityWay, Sonpreet worked for eleven years on Wall Street in senior positions.
