Founded in 2004, NY Tech Meetup is the largest meetup group in the world. It is run by NY Tech Alliance, a non-profit organization formed by the merger of NY Tech Meetup (the non-profit) and New York Tech Council in 2016.

Each month, our monthly meetup is held at different venues across New York City, and features live demos from New York tech companies, followed by an after party.
