About NY Beta
NY Beta is New York's premier startup demo night, combining live demos, interactive competition, open socializing, and an open bar.
There are no structured talks or presentations — we offer pitches and pints without the PowerPoint. Instead, join more than 250 of your peers to meet amazing people, discover groundbreaking startups, and make unforgettable connections with the movers and shakers of the media, technology, and social universe.
NY Beta is the official demo night of SocialWeek. Join us for an evening celebrating the next generation of social technology, and meet the founders, visionaries, executives, and media professionals leading the industry.
- Drinks on the house! Technology is better with beer.
- Open, casual socializing with more than 250 of New York's finest technologists, investors, and media professionals
- Ongoing startups demoing throughout the night. (Demoing takes place at tables around the room -- no sit-down presentations or pitches.)
- Interactive audience voting in our multimillion-dollar People's Choice Competition. (Fake dollars, but hey.)
