NYCEDC is submitting two panels to SXSW this year, and we need your help!
By hosting panels at SXSW Interactive, our goal is to spread the word about NYC’s booming tech startup scene and further brand the City as an innovative tech hub. NYC offers unparalleled tech companies, talent, and government resources, and we want to drive new people and startups to join us here in the Big Apple.
But in order to get two coveted spots at SXSW in March 2012, we need you, NYC tech enthusiasts, to help vote us to the top!
Log on to SXSW Interactive starting at 2 PM Central Time today to vote for our two proposed SXSW panels (you will have to create a free account to vote):
Silicon Alley - The Startup Ecosystem that Never Sleeps (link to vote)
Building the Innovation City - Lessons from NYC (link to vote)
Read on for panel descriptions and speakers. Help bring NYC to SXSW by casting your vote and sharing with others!
