At 9 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, March 9, we opened our registration counter for the Made in NY: Austin event held in the #FEED powered by Twitter space at the AMOA Arthouse. From the moment we began, a steady stream of people continued flowed in!
At 10 a.m. we began the Master Classes sponsored by Pearson and powered by General Assembly. The classes introduced attendees to the startup scene in NY. Matt Brimer, co-founder of General Assembly, provided an orientation of the New York Startup Community. With speakers like Dave Gilboa, co-founder of Warby Parker, and Rachel Haot, Chief Digital Officer for the City of New York, the classes were rich in content.
At noon, we opened the Main Gallery of the AMOA Arthouse where we created a showcase of about 40 companies. The crowd swarmed the space and within minutes, the venue was filled with an amazing cacophony of discussions, live demos and recruiting! Companies like Shapeways engaged the attendees with great 3-D printed handouts and Sherpaa provided medical assessments right from their tabletop. Popular Mechanics created a comfy lounge that proved to be a favorite spot to rest and recharge their many mobile devices. Cold brew coffee provided by Chameleon Cold-Brew, fueled the discussions at the HD Made Mini Meetups happening in the loft space of the venue throughout the afternoon. The New York tech scene definitely pulsed down in Texas!
American Express, presenting sponsor of the event, took center stage with 3 roundtable discussions. They covered the topics of VC funding, growing your startup and financial empowerment. Armed with leaders and experts in each area and with amazing real time illustrators capturing each discussion, the stage and area around it was very much the hub of activity.
As the clock sped toward 6 p.m., the crowd did not wane. In fact, a new line was forming outside the venue for access to the evening cocktail party hosted by American Express. The weather held, an amazing jazz band began and the sun began to set creating the perfect evening setting for the rooftop cocktail party.
As the cocktails flowed on the roof, armed with eager Task Rabbits, we transformed the Main Gallery space from our daytime exhibition to a nightclub party venue for the @Night event. Within less than 2 hours, the furniture was cleared and the vibe was set to party. Again, a massive line began to warp around the building and at 9pm, the doors once again opened and the party began. VITO & DRUZZI (THE RAPTURE DJS), MOON BOOTS and PERSEUS, added some last shots of adrenaline to the day and kept the crowd dancing until 2 a.m.
With the help of our hosting partners (Gust and Made in NY) and our collaborating partners (HD Made, Control Group and Learned Evolution) the pre-event planning came into being at the Made in NY: Austin in a big way! The NY Tech Community once again showed its support and made Texas feel just like home!
