There's about three weeks until Vator Splash NY! Join hundreds of high-tech influencers for Splash NY at Le Poisson Rouge in downtown Manhattan on the evening of Dec. 5.
It's a bit last-minute, but this announcement from Vator came to my attention very recently:
If you're a startup that's looking to meet top-notch angels, VCs, corp development folks at top media and NY-based companies, and win $5000 worth of cool prizes, like in-kind services such as back-office consultation and work courtesy Backops, two-hour accounting consultation courtesy KPMG; two-hour legal consultation courtesy Royse Law Firm, free months of SendGrid services, a sit-down VC meeting with FirstMark Capital and Metamorphic Ventures, and other goodies, then you have one week left to apply.
Join the competition here. It's free to apply and get on stage (if you get chosen by the judges). We stop taking applications on November 18.
Even if you're not part of the competition, just come along, and mix and mingle with some of the top angels, VCs and entrepreneurs. You'll hear from leading entrepreneurs who've built their companies from the ground up. And, you'll hear from top NY investors on why NY is booming with startup opportunities, and what they're looking to invest in.

At Splash NY, Sheila Marcelo, founder and CEO of Waltham, MA-based Care.com, will share her lessons building her startup, which has raised more than $100 million in venture financing. Jeremy Allaire, founder and CEO of Brightcove, will also talk about how he founded his company and led it to a successful IPO exit this year. Other speakers and judges of our competition include Scott Kurnit (founder of About.com and angel investor), David Gilboa (founder and CEO of Warby Parker, and angel investor), Deborah Jackson (WIM Accelerator/Golden Seeds), Lewis Gersh (Metamorphic Ventures), Max Chee (Millenium Technology Value Partners), Ben Lin (Great Oaks Capital Management), Chris Fralic (First Round Capital), Rick Heitzmann (FirstMark Capital), James Robinson (RRE Ventures), Micah Rosenbloom (Founder Collective) Michael B.
