Good morning, All, and we did urge you to participate, we’re very happy – and proud! – to announce that one of our members, Boston-based zazu.com (they’ve posted today, too) is one of the winning tech startups Pepsico selected for their program, which fosters brand communications innovation. For the announcement and more details about the program: http://bit.ly/9n9feG. And our congratulations to Punit Shah and the zazu.com team.
Startup Weekend was this past weekend and 27 groups presented as many new startup ideas. And the winner is…adoptahacker.com, which makes it easier for hackers from around the country to visit NYC, plug into the tech scene here and find a couch to crash on. Congratulations to Jonathan Wegener and Ben Fisher and thanks, guys, on behalf of (soon-to-be-in-NYC) hackers everywhere.
Speaking of winner, if you’d like to hear – and possibly have a minute or two – with some (other) successful tech entrepreneurs – et al – BizTechDayNYC is coming up September 24, and we’ve got a 20% discount for StartupOneStop.com members who’d like to attend. BizTechDay, an intensive one-day experience where entrepreneurs meet to inspire and be inspired by each other. And hopefully learn from some of the best. Speakers include Scott Heifferman (founder, Meetup), Peter Shankman (founder, HARO), Clay Shirky (Social Media Theorist), Lisa Gansky (founder, Ofoto), and Seth
Godin (Author), to name a few. More information: http://bit.ly/bf3hye and your discount code is SOS! Hope to see you there!
