RE: [IxDA] NYC Entrepeneurs Want IxDA'ers for Aug. 5th Event!
30 Jul 2010 - 1:54pm
I encourage people to go as well. I will be there.
I'd like to promote an event next Thursday night Aug 5,
"Web Design For Startups" , where I'll be a panelist along with
Christopher Fahey of Behavior Design, Seth Giammanco of Minds On Design
Lab, and Dan Maccarone of Hard Candy Shell. The event is hosted by
NYC-based entrepeneur meetup group UltraLightStartups .
Ultra Light Startups™ brings together New York’s most
innovative technology entrepreneurs, investors and professional service
providers in a dynamic monthly event and accompanying online communities.
Events feature pitching, networking and interactive, moderated panel
discussions with leading industry experts.
Graham Lawlor, founder of ULS, described the Aug 5 event
to me this way:
>"As I mentioned, I am really hoping to make this
event a 'matchup'
>style event where designers meet startups and
startups meet designers.
>I know so many ULS members are in dire need of design
>speculating that at least some members of IxDA would
be interested in
>working with startups. We'll be distributing
colored dots that
>attendees stick on their name badge to identify
startups and designers
>and to facilitate networking. I know many
startups are attending this
>event looking to meet and hire designers. "
