Queens Tech Meetup - QTM 1

UPDATE (6/7): We decided to release one last batch of 25 tickets so that everyone gets a chance to help us launch QTM.

Queens Tech Meetup with Alexis Ohanian, Peter Weijmarshausen, & Songza


Participate in product demonstrations, interact with accomplished entrepreneurs and meet other tech enthusiasts.

We’re thrilled to have Alexis Ohanian, Co-Founder of reddit and Y Combinator’s East Coast Ambassador, Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways, and Songza, your personal music concierge launch our monthly Queens Tech Meetup series.

This is our inaugural meetup and we want to make it as engaging and collaborative as possible. After each demo, there will be time to test out the products at stations and provide feedback to the creators. We want to build a stronger tech community here in Queens and we hope to do so with your help.

If weather permits, we will enjoy the rooftop views. In case of inclement weather, enjoy a beer inside and hang out with your fellow techies.

All ticket proceeds will go to covering event costs.

This event is hosted by Coalition for Queens, a non-profit organization fostering a tech community in Queens.

    Very enjoyable event, relative to the fact that it was the first. Some solid presentations and great crowd. This is fantastic for the LIC area and for Queens in general. Looking forward to the next.

    Hey Techies, we’ve been thrilled with the overwhelming response and because of the large demand, we’ve decided to find a larger venue and have moved the meetup date. We hope that you will be able to join us!

    Glad a group like this has finally come together in Queens. It is so relevant and surprised it hasn't formed sooner. I unfortunately can't make this event, will be out of town, but will definitely be at future meetups!
