Join us for NYC's most famous and longest running monthly tech event! You'll see a fantastic lineup of New York tech companies presenting live demos of their products, followed by an afterparty where you can network with the community and meet our demoers and sponsors.
For July's event, NY Tech Meetup will team up with Blank Space and the City of New York to host the final event of the 'Driverless Future Challenge.' Teams from around the world submitted proposals to answer a complicated question: How can NYC prepare for autonomous cars? The four finalists in the challenge will pitch NYC Government officials and technologists at the event and the winner will be crowned live in front of the Meetup audience!
