The NJ Tech Meetup is a monthly meeting of 150+ entrepreneurs and innovators. We meet monthly at the Stevens Institute of Technology campus in Hoboken, NJ to hear from smart feature speakers and interesting startups. The goal is an atmosphere of sharing best practices and learning from both failure and success.
Past speakers include Kevin Ryan (Gilt, Business Insider, MongoDB), Don Katz (Audible), Gary Vaynerchuk (VayerMedia), James Altucher (Altucher Confidential), Cory Booker (US Senator), David Kidder (Clickable), Ben Sun (Primary VC), Tad Martin (Overstock), Seth Besmertnik (Conductor), Steve Messer (Linkshare), Jeff Stewart (Mimeo, Urgent Career), Bob Dorf (The Four Steps to the Epiphany), David S. Rose (NY Angels), Craig Kanarick (Razorfish), Albert Wenger (Union Square Ventures), Eric Hippeau (Lerer Hippeau VC), Joy Marcus (DailyMotion), Nir Eyal (Hooked), Jeff Hoffman (Priceline), Ari Meisel (LessDoing.com), Brad Feld (Foundry), and more.
We've received lots of press from places like the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Entrepreneur Magazine, and we've represented NJ when invited to speak at the White House Tech Meetup.
We are excited to host Manny Medina, CEO and Co-founder of Outreach, at NJ Tech Meetup 100! Manny is a Stevens alum whose path to entrepreneurship included stops as employee number 3 at Amazon's AWS and a 7 year stint at Microsoft before taking the plunge into startup-world. After taking his first company, GroupTalent, through Techstars in 2011 Manny hit a brick wall with little sales and cash running out. Manny and his 2 person team created a sales automation platform to scale their outreach. And it worked. Prospects were calling like crazy but it wasn't his recruiting software they were interested in, it was the sales software. Thus, Outreach was born.
Outreach is the leader in a new category of Customer Engagement Platform and has raised over $125M to date.
Come hear Manny's story from Engineer to Entrepreneur!
