Welcome Back ArtsTechPhilly Friends,
To start the new year off we are presenting a Demo Day discussing the intersection of food and technology. In the past several years food tech has brought us wonders such as molecular gastronomy, crowd funding platforms for food entrepreneurs and big data mobile apps that allow consumers to make more informed decisions.
In true Demo Day fashion we will split up the evening between three 10 minute presentations from local food tech leaders followed by a short recess. After three members will be given 5 minutes to present their perspective of food tech. To present a demo please submit your ideas for a presentation to [masked].
The evening schedule will be as follows:
7PM Doors Open
7:30PM Presentations Begin
8PM Short recess
8:15 Three 5 minute Presentations from members
8:30-9:30 Mingle and continue the conversation
Consmr is a product review app for iPhone that allows users to scan the barcodes of any drugstore, beauty, grocery or baby product to reveal democratic, crowdsourced reviews. Don't buy disappointing deodorant or sour orange juice; just scan with Consmr to make smarter shopping decisions.
Felicia D'Ambrosio is a Philadelphia native and recent transplant to NYC, where she serves as community manager of Consmr. Her other ventures include fried chicken and donut shop Federal Donuts, where she learned the value of honoring the social media conversation, especially when it's about important things like food.
For a chance to demo send your topic to [masked].
