Startup Day is Heading Back to The Big Apple

AWS Startup Day is coming back to New York City on Wednesday, June 27th and will be hosted at the AWS New York Loft at 350 W. Broadway. Last year’s event was a fun and exciting day filled with learning and networking and this year is sure to be the same. Startup founders, CEOs, technical experts, and venture capitalists will be delivering a series of talks, panels, and breakout sessions at the AWS Loft in SoHo. No matter what stage startup you are, there will be something of interest and value for you at Startup Day.

This is a full-day event that is meant for startup founders and technical individuals. It is aimed at providing participants with the chance to network with others and also hear advice and insight directly from those who have dealt with similar struggles and challenges before. It’s a fantastic chance to immerse oneself in educational sessions, offering both a Business and Technical track. The goal of the overall event is to provide insight into emerging trends and help attendees learn how to accelerate startup growth and development.

The second annual New York Startup Day will first highlight a keynote presentation from Benjamin Hindman, CEO of Splash, followed by an all-star lineup for the VC panel discussion, featuring Graham Brown from Lerer Hippeau, Hadley Harris from Eniac Ventures, Catherine Ulrich from FirstMark Capital, and Alex Clayton from Spark Capital. Following these talks, the technical track will have AWS Solutions Architects speaking on a variety of topics, ranging from security, AI, and infrastructure costs, while the business track will spotlight Tae Hea Nahm from Storm Ventures , Beth Ferreira from FirstMark, Michelle Marlborough from AiCure, and Justin Smithline from Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator.

New York Startup Day 2018 is sure to be a can’t miss event, so mark your calendars! You can register and check out the full agenda details here.
