Audiences watched shark tank style demos and heard speakers from leading corporations including General Motors, Verizon, and Uber. Lines waiting to get badges zig-zagged from the venue to the New York city Sidewalk. The tremendous turnout was represented a diverse audience, eager to learn more about emerging technology opportunities and investment options.
The TechDay Conference broad agenda filled two stages with state of the art technology demonstrations and panel talks. A myriad of technology and investment companies, makers, accelerators, recruiters, incubators were represented at this exciting and encompassing event.

The programs smoothly transitioned with inspirational fireside chats that included Leap The Pond, Mapquest, MSK.
