We're very proud to welcome Nicolas (https://twitter.com/dessaigne), co-founder and CEO at Algolia (https://www.algolia.com/) for our next European Tech Meetup, hosted at Meetup HQ.

As Harry Stebbings (http://www.thetwentyminutevc.com/nicolasdessaigne/) puts it, Algolia is a brilliant case study for the successful pivot, having started off life as an offline search engine for mobiles but really took off by helping companies deliver an intuitive search-as-you-type experience on their websites and mobile apps.

They participated in Y Combinator’s Winter 2014 batch and raised $18.3M in May 2015 (http://techcrunch.com/2015/05/20/algolia-grabs-18-3-million-from-accel-for-its-search-api-on-steroids/) from the likes of Accel Partners, Point Nine Capital, Storm Ventures and many more incredible investors.

Join us for an interactive Q&A, followed by drinks to mingle with the New York European Tech.
