55 Lexington Avenue, Field Center - Room 2-140
We invite you to TiE New York's monthly Startup Open Mic Night event for an exciting night of networking and pitching! This event in particular is exciting, as we are jointly presenting this event in partnership with CUNY, at its Baruch campus.
Polina Hanin, Academy Director at StartUp Health will be our featured speaker for the evening.
To pitch at this event, you don’t have to be a TiE member, you just need to be an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur with the passion to share your idea that may change our world. You will be given a safe entrepreneurial friendly space to deliver an elevator pitch for 90 seconds in front of a group of mentors, angel investors, venture capitalists, startup-focused service providers, and a very supportive community of successful entrepreneurs.
Each attendee must register in order to be included on the building's security list.
If you plan to speak and share your story, please register as a "Presenter". If your start-up is speaking but you are not the key speaker, register as a non-member or member (whichever applies).
All speakers should arrive by 6:15 pm and check in with our speaker coordinator. Again you, you don’t need to be member to attend the event, the event is free, pizza and drinks are served on the house. And you are always welcome to join our ever-growing coveted community of entrepreneurs by visiting our website at ny.tie.org.
RSVP for this free event, here!
