Startups flock to NY TechDay - Fox 2 News Headlines

Startups flock to NY TechDay

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

NY TechDay is where the hottest new startups come every year. More than 400 of them from all different countries come to check out the NYC tech scene.

Our first stop at Pier 92 was Rent Hackr, a website with renter generated data to help apartment hunters.

Then we checked out Karma, a portable Wi-Fi device that lets you share hot spots with friends.

If you need a charge, Empowered Bag will power you up.

New York Tech Day gives startups what they need to grow. They can brainstorm, meet investors, hire talent, and more.

Alec Hartman, the creator of the one-day event, says even the volunteers make TechDay unique. They're students from the Urban Assembly Gateway School, which provides special training in technology. They're also getting inspiration from talented tech-savvy inventors. One of them could be the next big thing.
