Guest Speaker: Angel Investor Brian Cohen
Brian is one of the most successful angel investors in the country and an early advocate for the development of a tech ecosystem in New York City. He will be joining us to share his many experiences as active angel investor as well as anecdotes from his new book What Every Angel Investor Wants You To Know.
Following Brian’s presentation, five amazing New York City technology companies will demo their products, some for the first time publicly:
