Inside the Founders Studio with Voxy and Sidetour

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).

    Possibly because it's my first meeting, but I found it tremendously stimulating and inspiring.

    I just wish there had been a bit more time for people to mingle more with with each other. I didn't get to talk to everyone I wanted to!

    It was awesome! I loved how unpretentious and relaxed it was. Thank you for the pizza and beer!

    I did have a little bit of a hard time hearing Paul speak. Also, maybe next time they could sit on stools or something so everyone can see?

    Thanks!

    We are psyched to see you tonight. 2 quick notes...

    1) Pls enter on 166 Crosby. 2) We are going to experiment with the PeopleHunt app tonight to help you meet the right folks in the room. I got a demo from one of the NYC-based founders last week and it looked pretty cool. You can download the iPhone App or access the mobile site here: http://peoplehunt.me . We will play with it tonight.

    I've stopped using Meetup's wait list feature in an attempt to reduce excess email traffic. Our July 23rd event is pretty much full up now but if someone is dying to attend, we might be able to squeeze a few more and you can just email me at giff.constable @gmail
