NYC TechBreakfast

We recently attended the NYC TechBreakfast, where some awesome up-and-coming companies breaking into the New York tech space demo-ed their products. The panelists at the event included Authentik Time, LaundryPuppy, SkillBridge, TELLLER, and Jetco Research.

There are lots of articles out there predicting winners based on the teams' performances in the tournament to date, the health of their respective starting lineups, and other things that they feel are pertinent.

New York City Subleases of the Week - Spring 2014 - Flatiron Edition

Start up and technology companies in New York are always looking for shorter term leases than the standard. Unfortunately most landlords are looking for five year plus lease term, which can be hard for a new, growing company. Five years is a lengthy commitment and most either do not have the funds to make that type of deal work or are rightly concerned they will grow out of the space by then. Also, many of these types of companies are looking for loft type, open space, which is commonly found in the Flatiron District.
