Event Details

The OpenCoNY Festival

OpenCO Hostcos

The best way to experience and learn about the innovation economy isn't in a stuffy ballroom - it is up close and personal and in its native habitat. Experienced marketers and conference organizers Brian Monahan and John Battelle would like your support for a new type of business conference called OpenCo, which we like to think of as a mix between a business conference and artist's open studio with the vibe of a music festival. With your help, more than 100 of the most innovative businesses in NY will open their doors to the public on May 23.

This festival of innovation will celebrate companies that embrace a set of values surrounding the concept of openness: open collaboration, open communication, open community, open company and open doors to you. Attendees will meet these innovators in their native habitat and hear from the founders and executives about how they are trying to change the world and why. They will inspire you and help you make new connections, whether you are a job seeker, investor or simply a curious neighbor.

We already have a growing list of host companies ("HostCos"), who have signed on to open up their doors and share their vision including: AOL, AppNexus, Betaworks,  Business Insider, Buzzfeed, Estee Lauder Online, Etsy, Fab.com, Foursquare, General Assembly, Kickstarter, Lerer Ventures, Local Response, Pave, PolicyMic, Rap Genius, Rebelmouse, Thrillist, Warby Parker, ZocDoc and many more coming soon!

We ran a "beta test" of OpenCo in San Francisco last Fall and the one day event was a huge success. We had over 80 participating companies and 2,000 registered festival goers. Here is a video that gives you a taste of that event:

We hope that you will help us launch the first-ever, three-day OpenCo in New York City. We're expanding everything - the technology platform, the video coverage, the staffing, and the services we provide to HostCos and partners. We are increasing onsite video coverage so that these exciting stories remain told throughout the year and to audiences far and wide.

Please help us support some of NYC's most exciting and dynamic companies...

NewCo Festivals

A fresh twist on the traditional conference + media platform, NewCo is rapidly gaining traction across the globe. The concept is simple but powerful: NewCo turns a traditional event inside out. Instead of filling a dark ballroom with “attendees” and having leaders lecture in a one-to-many style, NewCo occurs inside the world’s most innovative startups and high-growth companies.  Executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and future influencers get an up close and personal experience of each company in its native habitat. Once inside, participants have a wide range of experiences – from behind-the-scene tours of cutting-edge work environments to founders candidly sharing insights into their own entrepreneurial journey. Only NewCo offers this deep and unique experience of the innovation economy.
