Friday speaker series brings key thought leaders, investors, executives in an intimate fireside chat format conversational approach to giving entrepreneurs access to trends, ideas, process within large organizations and better understand how things work.

Imagine you had a meeting with these angels and access to ask anything.  The audience is kept small to allow for that engagement. More hard to reach guys are brought each Friday for real conversations.  Come learn about what you can't "google" to stay updated on what the market wants and share a beer.

    Hi all,
    We are creating a CEO round table which would take place once a month in Five Boros for Technology CEO's to get together around a table and schmooze yet more importantly share ideas and get feedback from one another. We are limiting the amount of people so it can be effective yet once successful we plan on having multiple different groups. If your interested and find this concept to be something you can benefit from, then please email me for nitty gritty details. All the best, Michael (Mordechai) Clapman
