Join us tomorrow night at the top of 10 Hudson Yards as we explore New York City in the year 2118! The show starts at 7pm, doors open at 6pm, drinks and 360 views of the skyline are included. Just saying.
In pondering the future of the city that never sleeps we will meet the first human-robot comedy duo! We will sit down with Mark Thomas, SVP of Partnerships at the NYCEDC to hear an insider’s view of what it really means to innovate at scale (think 5 boroughs scale). And, of course, we will imagine young love in a world where rent is $350,000/month. Last but not least…
FLIPPING THE PITCH
We’ve all seen pitches and demo days where the startup is struggling to impress VCs and audience alike. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. So we’re flipping the script on pitches with abrand new game show called VS.VC. Our first founder will be Rob Smith from Phluid Project, fashion innovator and community leader who is challenging the future of gender and capturing the heart of Gen Z daily at his flagship location in NOHO. Three live audience members and one real VC will compete (live!) for both a place in Rob’s business and a cash prize!
