New York has a fast-growing startup ecosystem, and entrepreneurs here are lucky to have so many resources available to help them in their journey. However, many people don't know about all of the resources available, the differences between them, or what resources are right for them. During this online interactive event, we will gather representatives from different entrepreneurial organizations, including Forum Ventures, Kairos HQ, The Founding Network, and top local entrepreneurs, to outline the local resources and provide tips on how to build a global startup in New York.
