For our July meetup, we are joined by two dynamic NYC entrepreneurs: Paul Gollash of Voxy and Mark Webster of Sidetour.
Voxy is a language learning service that integrates learning into daily life. They have been doing a lot of innovative stuff on mobile, not just in terms of the functionality but also the experiments they ran in designing their product.
Sidetour lets people host or participate in interesting city experiences (take a tour of graffiti sites in the Big Apple guided by a graffiti artist, or experience a clam bake hosted by a Food Network chef). The founding team really put the lean notion of "prove it, then build it" to work when starting.
Special note: the front entrance is still going to be under construction so to get to 9th floor you need to go around the back to 166 Crosby Street (the back of the building).
